Our Story

Gemfields is a world-leading supplier of responsibly sourced, coloured gemstones.

But we prefer to think of ourselves as more than just a mining company. We are pioneers at an exciting new frontier where mining, marketing, exploration and ethics meet.

We oversee the mining and marketing of coloured gemstones from some of the world’s finest gemstone deposits and we do so responsibly and transparently. We have mining operations in Zambia for emeralds and in Mozambique for rubies, and we are actively examining opportunities in other key gemstone producing countries around Africa.

We have a proven track record of delivering a consistent supply of professionally sorted and graded rough coloured gemstones to world markets through a programme of private auctions. We also assist the downstream supply chain through the provision of cut and polished gemstones for select customers, as well as through ongoing marketing efforts.

Gemfields’ acquisition of Fabergé in January 2013 aligned the world’s largest coloured gemstone producer with one of the world’s most recognisable and iconic heritage brands. The acquisition enables Gemfields to advance its vision for coloured gemstones to the next level, harnessing the Fabergé name to create a global coloured gemstone champion.
