ABOUT OUR DIAMOND & EMERALD JEWELLERY IN WEST SUSSEX
Diamonds and emeralds have been traded for centuries and supply has long failed to keep pace with demand. This is especially true of the coloured stone market. A clear example of this is Rio Tinto’s Arglye mine in Kimberly, Western Australia, which is responsible for the majority of the world’s pink diamond production and is due to close by 2020. This will place enormous pressure on the supply of these rare stones and drive prices ever higher. All of the polished pink diamonds produced by the Arglye mine in any given year would fit inside a single champagne flute!
Purchasers of emeralds need to deal through someone who has access to primary dealers or wholesalers. The London Diamond & Emerald Exchange deal directly with the mine agents of Colombian emeralds in Bogota. Whilst it is possible to source inferior emeralds from a number of countries, Colombia has a world-renowned reputation for producing stones of the highest calibre and finest hue. Consequently, we only supply the superior Colombian stones.
Colombia produces most of the world’s fine emeralds and their two major mines, the Muzo and Chivor, are rapidly approaching exhaustion. In time, this trend is expected to be repeated elsewhere. The Spanish Conquistadors, who learned of their locations from the Indians, opened both mines in the 1500s. The vibrant emeralds emerging from these mines are referred to as “Old Mine emeralds” and were mostly in the form of rounded rough stones called “Chibcha.” The Muzo emeralds exhibit fantastic yellowish-green shades, while the Chivor emeralds are distinguished worldwide by their deep bluish-green tones. Colombia produces the world’s most desirable stones in terms of clarity, colour and size.
Critical to the value for money achieved when purchasing a diamond of any type is the supplier’s position in the supply chain. The London Diamond & Emerald Exchange deal directly with mine agents, wholesalers and ateliers to ensure that the stones we purchase are priced competitively.
