When it comes to sourcing stones, authenticity can be a rare feat. But over the past four decades, Gemerald Ltd has continually supplied its clients with world-class, ethically sourced precious stones, specializing in emeralds.
Gemerald Ltd is the world’s leading supplier of the rarest emeralds on earth. Founded by the Israeli brothers Shlomo and Ofer Eshed, the company has exceeded client expectations since the beginning. Gemerald Ltd is fueled by one mission: to find the finest rough stones in the world and cut them with precision and talent, producing no less than perfect results. By recruiting the most talented minds in the industry and using state-of-the-art technology, the company’s dream became a reality.
While Gemerald Ltd initially dealt with low to high-grade precious stones, it eventually set its focus on emeralds because of how challenging emerald production can be, as the stone should be particularly handled so as not to destroy its color, clarity, and luster. But always up for challenges, the Eshed brothers took on what others would otherwise find intimidating and built the most trusted source for fine emeralds in the world.
From its factory in the Diamond Exchange in Israel, Gemerald Ltd supplies the finest emerald to the most prominent jewelry brands across the globe with worldwide branches, shipments, and exhibitions in the largest business centers for luxury goods. The company supplies for clients in New York, Hong Kong, Geneva, Basel, Las Vegas, and many more.
“One of the biggest advantages we have is the fact that we are firsthand cutters. We purchase the rough directly from the mine, 100% ethically, and control the whole cutting process from the beginning to its end. That’s how we can assure the quality control of the stones, as well as keeping competitive prices,” said the founders.
In addition, Gemerald Ltd is home to seasoned experts with over 40 years of accumulated experience in the industry. The company and its team of professionals ensure that every stone is not compromised during the cutting process. The founders explained that, at times, other companies tend to lose more material in the redlining process to achieve results. Gemerald Ltd sets the bar higher by producing perfection without sacrificing the precious materials.
Furthermore, Gemerald Ltd is recognized for going above and beyond to deliver what their clients want, from the sizes, cuts of the stones, to how it is shipped to their doors. The meticulous process stems from the company’s commitment to excellence and goal to exceed client expectations.
Gemerald Ltd supplies to the biggest jewelry brands in the world, but the founders explained that their success did not happen overnight. It took many years of hard work, consistency, good service, and personal relationships to get to where they are today. The founders aim to expand their reach in the near future through strategic marketing efforts and even create an online platform for their one-of-a-kind emeralds to make stone shopping more accessible.
Besides managing Gemerald Ltd, Shlomo Eshed is also the president of the Precious Stones & Diamonds Exchange in Israel over the past 20 years, which provides Gemerald Ltd a unique edge over its competition and giving clients more confidence.
Ofer’s son, Idan Eshed, and Shlomo’s son, Tamir Eshed, represent the next generation of the company. Idan is the manager of the manufacturing and cutting process while Tamir is the marketing executive.
Precious stones were once limited to royalties and nobilities. But Gemerald Ltd is ensuring that even those born without a silver spoon can feel like a million bucks. Without a doubt, Gemerald Ltd will continually rise to the top of its game.
