Sapphire, diamond, ruby, emerald… words that make you dream. We enter here into a particular and exciting universe, that of the “small miracles” performed by the Earth since precious stones are born in its bowels, after various chemical reactions. Of course, everyone knows the common names of the stones, but the “appellations of origin” are often less well known: Colombian emerald, Ceylon sapphire, Sri Lankan sapphire, natural Burmese ruby. Each stone has its own variations, especially in terms of colour intensity or size. Diamonds, for example, are available in cushion-cut diamonds, half-cut diamonds, modern brilliant-cut diamonds and antique diamonds. As state-certified gemologist experts, we provide gemmology certificates for all the stones we offer. This expertise also allows us to provide you with a precise and accurate estimate if you wish to resell precious stones. In this case, the expertise is always done on site, the only way to provide you with a well-argued and solid offer.
