Grace Diamonds is delighted to bring you ready to wear jewellery made using gemstones from Gemfields. Gemfields is a world leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones.
The Gemfields group takes it’s leadership position in the mining seriously and makes it a central tenet to continually work to improve the awareness and delivery of sustainability within the industry all the way through to the end consumer. We bring you wonderful jewellery pieces set with world class deep green emeralds from Zambia and brilliant red Mozambican rubies.
Gemfields approaches mining operations from the perspective that the resources of the land belong to the indigenous people. As a custodian of precious African resources — rubies and emeralds — the group diligently fulfils its fiduciary duty to citizens with clear accounting of revenue streams. It challenges the mining industry to go beyond compliance by setting new benchmarks for sustainable business practices.
Natural Emeralds are a distinctly green colour that ranges between bluish green and slightly yellowish green. Almost every natural emerald has eye-visible characteristics that can be inclusions, surface-reaching fractures, or healed fractures.
In most gemstones a flaw decreases the value of the stone. Not so with emeralds, whose flaws, or imperfections add to the character of the emerald. These imperfections in emeralds are called the ‘jardin’ (French, for ‘garden’), because they almost resemble vines that entwine throughout the stone.
