Our buying office is situated at No. 50, Galle Road, Colombo 03 in the heart of the commercial area of Colombo with easy access to all star class hotels and government offices. Our office is easily accessed via the Galle Road, one of the main streets of Colombo. It is within walking distance to the Sri Lanka Customs and Sri Lanka Gem & Jewellery Authority offices, and around the area are easily accessible hotels which offer a sumptuous palette of traditional as well as international cuisine.
A gem dealer who uses our office and us as his/her local agent has many benefits:
The knowledge and experience our management has in valuation, identification, and cutting is put to use to help you to get you the best offer.
He/She is exposed to many varieties of gem stones in different quantities and qualities which are offered by the dealers whom we have registered and screened, and he/she is allowed to deal directly with the dealer.
Each dealer is seen separately according to a list maintained by the office. This allows the customer ample time to make his decision.
During the negotiations, we will assist him/her with the current market price as well as examine the stone and enhance his/her knowledge as to the quality and the price.
We will always negotiate prices for the customer and act as a go-between to settle a deal which will benefit both parties.
All stones purchased will be weighed and tested prior to export.
If any discrepancy is found in the identification of the stone or its authenticity and treatment, we are responsible to take the stone back and return the total payment.
We will handle the export, including preparing of invoices, weighing, packing and the package will be totally insured.
A certificate could be obtained from the gem testing laboratory in the building which is the liaising office of “GEM-A” of UK.
In a lighter vein, if you so desire to engage in shopping for gifts to take back home, we are in the right location, for all major shops and shopping malls are but an easy distance away.
In the evening, after a day of work looking at beautiful gemstones, avail yourself of a truly beautiful sunset through the picture windows of our buying office, for they face the Indian Ocean with nothing in between except the salty sea spray and the golden hues of the setting sun.
