A Gem stone can take few steps when it comes from the mine to the final buyer. And in each step the traders involved will add their margins and commissions. Since we buy direct from the mine, your end price is free from all these expenses. And also the Gem & Jewelry Authority of Sri Lanka intervenes in all the steps of the exporting process while confirming the prices as well as the quality of the gem stone with the view of avoiding deception. Apart from that we make sure that the miner gets the correct price and their workforce is reasonably compensated when a row gem is sold to us.
The value of a gem is determined by type, size, color, clarity, rarity, and popularity. Even small differences in the hue or the intensity of the color can make a big difference in price. These same small differences in clarity and cut can also create substantial price differences in gemstones. We take original pictures of every gemstone. We always do our best to ensure that the color and saturation is as close as possible to the original stone. We offer gemstones in a wide range of qualities and prices. Please use our pictures and our prices to compare for quality and value. You can be assured that all our stones represent good value for the money. Remember that a $1000 stone will always be better than a $500 stone. So shop and compare, we are confident you will be pleased with our prices and our quality.
The gemstones are generally divided into two classes- precious stones and semi-precious stones. Rarity is an important factor in determining the cost of a gemstone and the value of a gemstone should not increase or diminish just because it is categorized as precious or semi-precious. Rarest gems are classified as precious stones such as Sapphires, Emeralds and Rubies. All other gemstones are classified as semi-precious.
There are many styles of cutting but there is no one particular style that is right for every gemstone. The Gemstones that we sell are all natural and we cut our fine gemstones in a way that will bring out there true beauty for you to enjoy. We employ cutters who use their imagination and experience in cutting our gems to ensure the best possible finished gemstones. We use many different styles of cutting to make our finished stones are better as much as possible.
