London DE SAS (LDE SAS) is our wholly owned Colombian subsidiary, based in the emerald dealing district of Bogotá, Colombia. It comprises our Colombian administration and sales office, as well as our emerald and jewellery workshop.
Colombia produces around 60% of the world’s emeralds and is widely regarded as the country of origin for the finest specimen. LDE SAS is at the crux of the fine emerald market and it provides the London DE Group with a vital supply head in the heart of the Colombian emerald industry.
The emeralds that are cut and polished and the emerald jewellery that is created in by LDE SAS in Bogotá is exported to a worldwide market. This arrangement enables us to ensure the ethical integrity of our supply-line, whilst also cutting out the middlemen and reducing the cost of manufacture.
