I think some of the stone is nice to become accessory or part of a wedding ring or ring during special occasions and gathering, you can add more price to it when it become part of a jewelry not only as piece of valuable stone.

So how can someone secure their transaction with you?

Do you have a rough price in mind for each lot and do you accept escrow for your sales.  Escrow here on this forum.  Thanks

Hi wheelz1200 thanks for the interest yes I will accept escrow and I do have a rough price in mind for some of the items but was open to offers or discussing the price dependent on quantity in terms of the rough stone, is there any item your interested in. I dident want to scare offers off so I thought I would leave the price open to generate an exchange or offers.

Hi Melvin we would have to set up a escrow scenario to ensure safety for both parties is there anything in particular your interested in? As you said there is further value to be added for buyers whether it be in jewellery or investing and selling on at a profit.

I need to determine the exact requirements as you say. To go even further, he needs a steady and detailed price. Let the community or users know more. Then when it has a durable value then the transaction value.

I see your point is very relevant to this content. He only displays gems, but do not see how much? Let people know. Lack of information on prices?

Are those natural gems? I think it would be very helpful if you would put a meter beside them so the scale of their dimensions can be observed.

Hi all

I am a ruby, sapphire and spinel investor/collector/trader specialized in high-end stones that are untreated, unheated, certified, eye clean and from conflict-free countries of origin (after dabbling in crypto I wanted something more "physical" to deal with).

Having long-term ties with primary dealers I can offer reasonable prices for high-end rubies e.g. for this 1.08 carat Pink-Red Natural Ruby from Mozambique: https://imgur.com/a/xWrL47i


If you're interested or just want to exchange thoughts - let me know! I'm always glad to share a passion :)


Ps. I'm still stuck on newbie level. If you PM me please make sure I can answer you.

There all natural earth mined stones i don't sell synthetics as for the raw diamond necklace its rough diamond and not cut the high end cut stones you are thinking of in much more expensive.

With the raw diamonds can they still be cut into small nice cut diamonds?

did some more research seems that they would be hard to cut down into anything nice and would probably have lots of inclusions do you have any rough diamonds in single stoned and not a whole necklace?


Title: Re: Swapping gemstones for coins
Post by: roughswap on July 10, 2019, 10:02:42 PM
Yeah cutting them would be a bother especially since there so small.

No I have no rough diamonds at the moment sorry, have a few cut ones in small sizes.
