One of the world’s leading coloured gemstone producers Gemfields Plc has opened a trading office in London, which will source and supply cut and polished Zambian emeralds to the UK, US and European markets. In its survey conducted in March 2011 in the UK, US and European markets, the company learnt of an existing need for additional suppliers of cut and polished Zambian emeralds in these markets, which it is hopeful will be catered to with the new office. Due to this historic lack of supply, retailers and designers have been reluctant to use Zambian emeralds in their designs and collections, as there is only limited access to fine goods and little knowledge or education on the difference between the different origins of supply.

In a statement the company noted that its London trading office ‘will thus help to ensure a consistent supply of bespoke, fine and commercial Zambian emeralds to these key markets. The trading office will be operated out of our head office in Jermyn Street and the London Diamond bourse, located at 100 Hatton Garden; London’s jewellery and gemstones quarter.’

Each emerald will be sourced directly from the company’s distribution partners, each of who have successfully bid and acquired lots at its rough auctions, therefore guaranteeing a transparent route from mine to market for these fine gems.
