I’ve heard presenters on Lootess talk about their mine-to-market distribution, what does this mean?
Gems traditionally pass through a seven-tier supply chain on their journey from the mine to the final consumer, increasing in price along the way. We favor a mine-to-market distribution model that removes as many middlemen as possible. But this approach also has other benefits; it safeguards provenance and ensures any enhancements are fully disclosed. This positioning empowers you with the knowledge and confidence to expand your colored gemstone experience. By routinely visiting and nurturing contacts in the key gem markets of Australia, Brazil, China, East Africa, India, Madagascar, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, our gem buyers have accumulated intimate knowledge of key gem producing and trading countries. This puts them in the unique position of being able to acquire gemstones that are not readily available.
Aside from the provenance guarantees of our preferred mine-to-market distribution, Lootess undertakes a series of checks based on our experience and gemological laboratory assessment to ensure that a gemstone displays the characteristics indicative of the origin specified. While we do everything possible to ensure our gemstone origins are correct, under World Jewelry Confederation (CIBJO or Confédération Internationale de la Bijouterie, Joaillerie, Orfèvrerie, des Diamants, Perles et Pierres) guidelines please note gemstone origin is considered a matter of opinion.
Yes, routinely spending time in mining communities in Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America, our gem buyers fully appreciate the standard of living improvements sustainable gem mining provides. Click Here to learn more.
