Our stones move fast, stocks keep on changing continuously. If there is anything you like, please take it immediately! All stones are unique, individual and good investments, as no two stones can ever be the same, so when its gone, its gone. Our selection is the cream of what miners bring in. Good facet rough are assets with prices going up all the time. They can be kept in rough form, traded and cut when needed.
We select only the best from the miners lots, cherry picking the best stones for color, shape and clarity, sometimes only 1 stone in a kilo sometimes one stone in 5 kilos, depending on the clarity, shape, size and color and of course general attractiveness and beauty of the individual stones. We only buy the best. Primarily, we buy to cut ourselves so we buy stones that are in the top top grade but we have a HUGE number of friends/clients/buyers/people on our email lists, that would like to buy them rough, hence this page. Knowing many of the miners personally we get first hand selection at the best stones that come out from East Africa. What we buy and offer out is above the quality of what is commonly available, we offer out the BEST of what comes out from the East African Region. We believe in Long Term relationships, both with buyers and miners. We are 4th generation gemstone dealers and have been in the trade for a very long time. What you see here is probably the best that comes in from the miners, the top of the top, the crème de la crème. Since all natural stones are unique, once they're gone, they're gone.
In short, we pay high prices to miners to pick the best stones from their lots, whatever remains goes round to other dealers.
Good Quality Rough and Cut stones are not cheap, we hand select the Highest Quality Premium Facet Rough from what miners bring in, we literally ‘cherry pick’ only the Very Best from the lots, sometimes from thousands of grams to pick only a few stones, hence we pay a Premium to acquire such. We then offer them out to you. Good quality stones are more expensive to acquire and miners want top prices for their good rough. Lower quality is much much cheaper. We select each stone individually, only buying the best.
We are MEGA wholesale and retail gemstone faceting rough/cut stone suppliers and we sell at very much below wholesale prices. We buy directly from miners, keep our costs low, keep our overheads as low as we can, all to provide the best quality gemstones at the lowest possible prices to EVERYONE.
