How it Works

If your stones are in the following countries: Japan, United States of America, Germany, Europe, Singapore, Pakistan or China, we will visit your premises and see your stones in person.

We also buy rough stones by mail. Simply ship your stock, box by box, via the mail. As each box arrives, we will give you a call to talk about the price of the contents. If we can agree on a price, we will send you a payment via Paypal or check that same day. You can then prepare another box for shipment. If we can’t agree on the price, we will ship it back to you at our expense.If you have a large stock that is worth more than $1000, please send us a photo, description, and price request via email ( or Call/WhatsApp us at +92-346-9191091.  If we are interested and accept your price request, it will be sent pending inspection of the stones.Don’t forget to keep the locality information because location or origin does impact the gemstone’s price. For example, a tourmaline is worth $200 from Brazil, $400 from California and $1000 from Afghanistan. If you don’t have a location, you have to assume the lowest price.
