I have been a certified GIA gemologist since 1980. I travel to the source (with my team) to find and buy the best gemstones. By “source” I mean the mines, the alleys, the streets, the markets and anywhere else a coloured gemstone may be found. While shooting Gem Hunt we have travelled to 13 mines around the globe including in Colombia, northern Vietnam, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Cambodia. This is my speciality and this is the premium that I offer my clients, whether they are investors, collectors or jewellers.
INVESTORS AND COLLECTORS
As a renowned coloured gemstone buyer, my clients commission me to build private and corporate collections and diversified portfolio investments with an eye to strategic inheritance planning as well as investments in portable and wearable wealth.
No matter what your clientele demands, I am confident I can supply the coloured stone to you and at a better price than you will find through sightholders, traditional brokers or wholesalers.
I also have a large inventory of gorgeous Ethiopian Welo opals, as well as sapphires from Madagascar and Sri Lanka, amethyst from Zambia, star rubies from Burma, aqua from Mozambique and Madagascar, Imperial Topaz from Brazil and emeralds from Colombia. All of these stones were purchased while filming Gem Hunt and as such can be offered at a premium to your clientele.
Whatever your interest, if you want me to find and buy gemstones for you please fill out the form below and I will be in touch.
Sincerely, Ron LeBlanc
