RAPAPORT... Gemfields opened sales offices in Mumbai and Jaipur to supply cut and polished Zambian emeralds to India and the greater Asian market.

Gemfields stated that every emerald will be sourced directly from its distribution partners, which have successfully bid and acquired lots from the company’s rough auctions.

The Mumbai office will be managed by Pinank Vora and the Jaipur office will be led by Rohit Kumar, the company said.

Gemfields noted that retailers and designers had been reluctant to use Zambian emeralds in their designs and collections, as there was only limited access to fine goods and little knowledge or education on the difference between the different origins of supply.

The company’s international trading offices in London, South Africa and in India will help to ensure a consistent supply of bespoke, fine and commercial Zambian emeralds to all the key markets, Gemfields said.
