Gemstone Wholesaler – If, for example, the rough gemstone is bought by London DE for $10,000, then once the stone is cut and polished we estimate it will achieve a value to a gem wholesaler of $18,000. At this point London DE can export the stone and sell to another gem wholesaler and make a gross profit margin of 44.4%.
