Selection Stones and Pearls

2 7 6 / B a s e l w o r l d S e l e c t i o n s t o n e s a n d P e a r l s For Vinod Kotahwala Inc., dealing in gemstones isn’t simply business, it is an ancestral tradition, based on five ­generations in the gem trade. Due to that long-standing experience, the company – although a global operation headquartered in the New York City – can give each ­client the personal attention of a family business and the special expertise that comes from a long history as gem ­merchants. The company specialises in emeralds, especially Colombian – “We’re one of the industry’s oldest dealers,” notes founder Vinod ­Kotahwala – and in white diamonds in round and fancy shapes, from star and melee sizes up to 6 cts., primarily G, H and I colour, and VS to SI clarity. They are certified by several labs, including GIA, EGL and HRD. The business continually refreshes its stock in response to trends and client demand. Most recently, it has increased its selection of white diamonds and has added what a company spokesman calls, “excellent new emeralds.” Vinod Kotahwala is also an expert dealer in other gems, including rubies and sapphires, and carries natural coloured diamonds in pink, grey, yellow, brown and green, from melee up to 4 cts. However, the primary focus is on brown and yellow diamonds. The gem dealer also has a wide selection of South Sea and Tahitian pearls – up to 15 mm, loose and on strands – freshwater and Akoya pearls, unique specimens of Caribbean Conch and other natural pearls. Its clientele range from ­independent shops to some of the largest jewellery houses. Regardless of size, ­company officials say, they’re committed to ­giving each customer the time and attention they deserve to complete their order and help their own end-­clients. Additionally, the family firm’s expertise and experience get its clients the best price and service, ­especially for Colombian emeralds, now very popular and increasingly rare. At Baselworld 2014, Vinod Kotahwala is focusing on unique pieces of Colombian emeralds, diamonds and other colour stones.
