Stones as Investments?
Good, Natural, Genuine Stones, bought at Good Prices, make excellent investment pieces as supplies from mines are dwindling and mining is becoming more expensive.
We see price increases almost every month, and have to adjust our buying prices all the time as a result. At times with rare stones, even over a short period of time the price can appreciate dramatically; and we have bought back cut and facet rough stones from dealers that we have sold to in the past, sometimes for 5x the price! Those in the gem trade will know this very well. This seems to be the trend in the last 25 years.
Rare, good quality stones are becoming harder to acquire, hence why we select only the best and highest grade gemstones. Good facet rough are great assets as well. They can be kept in rough form; traded and cut when needed. All our Gemstones are genuine and untreated, unheated, unless otherwise stated, so this would be a good place to start if you’re thinking of building your own collection!
We try as much as possible to keep our prices rock bottom so they work as investment pieces for you to profit from it. We break market prices by buying directly from source and pass on the savings to you, giving you access to the best stones that come in directly from miners at source. Our buyers include many jewellers, private collectors, designers, re-sellers, Gem dealers and wholesalers, and individuals building their own collections.
However, all stones are unique, individual, collectable and good investments. Two stones cannot be exactly the same, and as with any rare beauty; once they're gone, they're gone.
