- One of the show highlights are exceptionally rare semi polished Sapphires of more than 100 carats each. See these extremely rare finds at the Luxe jeweler DeGem. To appreciate the importance and value of these amazing sapphires, the Blue Belle of Asia earned the title of the most expensive blue sapphire in the world, after selling for $17,305,996 at Christie’s Geneva in November 2014. This 392.52-carat untreated Ceylon sapphire features a cushion-cut stone that draws your gaze into the depths of its captivating blue prism. The stone set a world record for the highest price paid at auction for a sapphire.
- Another breath-taking show highlights is an an Emerald pendant, carved and shaped by Fortunato Pio Castellani in the 19th century, was given by Napoleon III to his lover, Countess of Castiglione. This historical piece is currently in the private collection of Roberto Sciaguato.

- Learn from experts at the show how to collect your personal treasure chest – one exquisite gemstone at a time. Some of these rare gems can be found at Caratell including an 11-carat Bixbite (red emerald), a 17.33 carat Imperial Topaz (non-heated), a 4.39 carat Horse conch pearl and a 2.75 carat Lion paw scallop
- The appeal of rare, natural, colored gemstones – In 2015, a Burmese ruby sold for $30 million, or just over $1 million per carat – a benchmark usually achieved by the rarest and most exceptional coloured diamonds. That ruby, dubbed the Sunrise Ruby, weighed an astonishing 25.59 carats – an extraordinarily rare size for a ruby of its calibre. The singular stone set new auction records across the board when it sold at Sotheby’s Geneva in May, including a record price for a ruby, record price per carat for a ruby, and record price for a Cartier jewel – even ousting the Hutton-Mdivani Jadeite Bead Necklace which previously held the record price for a Cartier jewel.
- The interest in rare colored gemstones in Asia is an excellent example of how buyers are looking to invest in colored gemstones. While this may be about investing, they are also buying the pieces that appeal to them the most and for their intrinsic beauty. Because rare, natural and untreated colored gemstones are scarce, they can be more precious than white diamonds. Good quality natural gemstones are beautiful and they are solid investment pieces. Some of these gemstones are very hard to find in nature. Once mined, their scarcity increases as do their value. There is a shortage of supply of the rarest and best quality gems in the market. Gems like rubies, sapphires and emeralds are taking centrestage again, while newer gems like spinels, tsavorites, tanzanites and other variety of tourmalines are fast gaining popularity.
- SIJE in partnership with women communities
