We’ve sent some of our gem experts off to some of the most remote locations on Earth in search of the finest quality gems, and now they’ve made it home we’re thrilled to share the results with you in a new show, The Gem Hunter, which we’ll be debuting on Wednesday at 5pm.
After securing direct access to mines around the globe, we’re able to bring you rare vault finds, brand new discoveries and some of the rarest genuine gemstones -such as the canary aquamarine used in the ring below -direct from the source. To reflect how precious and treasured these pieces are, every design is timeless and immune to current trends, instead remaining a standout piece for years to come.
While our Gemopedia gemstone glossary will help you discover more about where your favourite gemstones come from, The Gem Hunter will bring you stones you mightn’t have even heard of! Sourced from disparate locations extending from Tanzania and Thailand to Uruguay and Russia, these beautiful gems come in all colours of the spectrum: from the vibrant red of Tanzanian ruby (below left), to the intense yellow of Mandarin citrine (bottom right).
We’ll also be showcasing Kanchanaburi sapphires – here set into a pendant, above right – prized for their intense colour, and other stones including Swiss and London shades of blue topaz, as demonstrated by this beautiful carved pendant.
Join us from 5pm on Monday to discover this treasure trove of finds from around the globe, and tell the story of your own travels and adventures with these gorgeous pieces. Or just click onto our Jewellery department to start your own gem hunt right now!
