Selection Stones and Pearls

s t o n e s a n d P e a r l s 1 3 2 / B a s e l w o r l d S e l e c t i o n Sapphire specialist, Ijadi Gem, Inc. invests its time and talents in sourcing the finest sapphires in the world, with a focus on providing exceptionally cut blue sapphires in bigger sizes and a variety of shapes. Ijadi Gem specialises in Ceylon and Burma sapphires in 10+ carat single stones, matched pairs and layout sets. The ­company is known for its exceptional ­recutting of native cuts. “We don’t cut from rough, we recut the stones to perfection,” explains Sam Ijadi, owner and president, noting that the firm gets all of the sapphires it buys certified. “You could call us the great improver. We present a better ­product to manufacturers and the end user.” A leading importer and distributor of fine gems to the industry, Ijadi Gem was ­established in New York City in 1988. While the gem house started with a ­broader range of inventory, in recent years it has narrowed its focus sharply on ­sapphires, the majority of which are of Ceylon and Burma origin, traditionally heated and ­unheated in the 10-25 carat size range. “Blue sapphire is the market’s most ­popular gemstone,” cites Ijadi. “It’s a ­durable ­gemstone that offers more ­opportunity to find a larger, lustrous, cleaner gem than other precious stones like ruby and ­emerald present. Moreover, blue is a universally ­appealing colour that works well with all skin tones. Blue ­sapphire offers great ­return on investment.” Headquarters ijadi gem, Inc., 15 West 47th Street, Suite 300, New York, NY 10036, USA Established 1988 Specialities Fine Sapphires of Ceylon and Burma Origin head Sam Ijadi, president Contact, Tel: +1 212 391 8030, Fax: +1 212 869 2410 Sh a r p l y F o c u s e d o n S a pph i r e s Ijadi Gem, Inc. · 3.0 / C33 Sam Ijadi, president of Ijadi Gem, Inc. and Partner Sam Haghighat
