Laser Inscribed

Once our gems have been cut and graded they are laser inscribed with their report numbers using the latest gemstone micro laser technology. We are one of the only gem cutting companies in the world doing this. This is a recognized security feature with Dia-monds, but the technology is not yet widespread in the colored gem industry. We lead the curve.

Each Stone has Its own Unique Story - Mining Reports

All our gems carry full Mining & Geology reports. As we get our gems directly from the mines that produced them, we are in the unique position to catalog the full "genealogy' of all our gems from mine toyou. This carries a photograph of the actual gemstone in the rough before we cut it, as well as all details of the mineral and its mining location.

Ethically Sourced

We are a fully licensed and regulated Gemstone Export Company. All our gems are inspected by the Ministry of Mining before export and a royalty paid against all exports. This means that a percentage ofyour purchase is paid directly to the government and held in trust for the community in which the mine is located. This trust is used by the community to build schools and hospitals.

So when you buy from us, you are not only getting a sensational rare gemstone but helping the communities in these remote areas of Africa too.
