FROM JAIPUR OUT: AN ANALYSIS OF THE EMERALD MARKET

Since 1975, Real Gems has been integral to the Jaipur market--supplying rough and cut emeralds to the trade internationally.
Shekhar Shah, Real Gems Business Development Director, is part of a third-generation family business.
Whether or not one has been to the Pink City, jewelry manufacturing is at the heart, as well as a love for May's birthstone. 

Join Shekhar in a discussion about recent developments in the world of emeralds.
The presentation includes a journey from an insider's view of the mines, to exploring the city's cutting factories and local terminology, through examining finished pieces, and the market today.   

Subtleties in emerald grading, manufacturing, selection, and assortment considerations, used in both rough and cut emeralds, will be discussed. Various treatment options will be explored, as well as the Real Gems L.O.V.E emerald grading system.
