Hello Everyone,

I hope you're all doing well. I'm currently in search of specific emerald gemstones and would greatly appreciate any assistance or recommendations. Here are the details of what I'm looking for:
  1. Round Shape Cabochon Ø 1.5 mm.
  2. Round Shape Cabochon Ø 2 mm.
  3. Pear Shape Faceted 3x4 mm.
with
  • No Indication of Clarity Enhancement
  • CE (o) None (No oil treatment or any other clarity enhancement)
If you can help me find these specific pieces, I would be extremely grateful!


Alternative: Rough Emeralds

If recommending specific pieces isn't possible, I'm also open to suggestions for rough emeralds that meet the following criteria:
  • No Indication of Clarity Enhancement
  • CE (o) None (No oil treatment or any other clarity enhancement) pearshape.jpg
I am very new to this, but I am really looking forward to finding these emeralds soon. If you have experience in sourcing such emeralds or can recommend reputable dealers, gemologists, or sources, I would love to hear from you. Any tips on where to look, what to watch out for, or personal experiences would be incredibly helpful.
Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello and welcome to the boards! Where are you located? There are some wholesalers I can recommend. You have the "trade" designation next to your username. Are you able to purchase wholesale as a seller? Otherwise, this may be a case where you need to run a search on a site like Etsy and take a chance with a well-reviewed shop. You can also check with Yvonne Raley (USA)... she sort of specializes in high-grade emerald melee and sometimes cabs, etc.

Thanks @Autumn in New England. I really appreciate your introduction. Currently, I am located in Bangkok, Thailand. However; yes, I am able to purchase wholesale. No problem. Please advise. Thank you so much.

Hello again - I think you would need a US tax ID to buy from wholesale websites here. But I'm curious why you wouldn't just use BKK connections to source the gems. You'll likely have a much greater selection (and better pricing).

Because I have been looking around, and I still can't find any emeralds that has "no indication of clarity enhancement". It's very difficult to find. It would be great if you can share me the wholesale website. So I can try to reach them. Thank you.

Aside from the faceted pear, I think you'll have trouble finding anything certified as untreated in 1.5 and 2mm cab sizing. You may have to take the word of the vendor or have the stones certified yourself, which can get pricey. Good luck!

You can also give Etsy a search, but it's a jungle out there, so do be careful.
