About Azeera Gems
+Do you take special requests for gemstone colors?
Unfortunately, this is a service that we cannot provide at the moment. The color and quality of the gems we set into your personally crafted piece will always be what we believe best compliments the mounting.
+Can I get a certificate for my gemstone?
Each non-diamond center stone comes with a certificate of quality. All individual diamonds worth $500 or more also come with industry-accepted lab certificates.
+Do you buy gemstones?
No, we only specialize in cutting gems to our own strict standards.
+Where do you cut your gemstones?
We deal with trusted gemstone providers who are known for ethical sourcing and with whom we have a long-standing relationship. Our gemstone-cutting workshop is located in Jaipur, India.
+Are your gemstones ethically sourced?
Yes. All of our gemstones are ethical and conflict-free. We buy our amethyst, aquamarine, black onyx, citrine, garnet, peridot, pink tourmaline, and Swiss blue topaz directly from ethical mining providers around the world and cut them ourselves.
We purchase our rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds already cut from trusted and reputable suppliers that we know personally. We have been working with many of our suppliers for generations—so we can vouch for their commitment to ethical and fair practices.
+Will you set my gemstones for me?
Unfortunately, we do not provide this service.
+Will the color of my gemstone be exactly the same as I see in your images online?
Gemstones form in nature. And like everything in nature, it is almost impossible to find two gems that are exactly alike.
In your piece, you may see a slight variation in color among your gemstones. However, we carefully choose each and every gemstone to match with the set.
We would also like you to note that—given the way color is spread across a gemstone—smaller sized gems tend to be slightly lighter in color compared to larger ones. This is especially true for aquamarine, Swiss blue topaz, and peridot.
+Are your gemstones enhanced?
The term “natural” implies that a gem was formed naturally in the earth without any treatment at all. All of our gemstones are products of mother nature and not created in a lab. However, some gemstones always require a certain number of enhancements. In our collection, these gemstones include sapphire, ruby, emerald, amethyst, Swiss blue topaz, black onyx, citrine, and pink tourmaline.What are enhancements?
Enhancements, or treatments, are done to bring out the stone’s full potential. Gemstones are often found partially developed when they are mined from the earth. We use only industry-accepted treatments, such as heating and oiling, to complete the natural formation process and bring out each gemstone’s natural beauty. In the case of emeralds, treatments also improve the stability and durability of the gem.Are your treatments AGTA and GIA-approved?
All our gems are crafted according to the AGTA- and GIA-accepted list of treatments. We do not carry stones with treatments such as lead filling, surface diffusion, dyeing, or waxing. We also do not offer lab-created synthetics or imitation gems.
+What Is the quality of your diamonds?
All of our diamonds are “bridal quality,” meaning that they are eye-clean and have a minimum clarity of SI2 and a minimum color of an H. The majority of our fancy-shaped diamonds are VS in clarity and H color or better. You will be provided an industry-accepted lab certificate for every diamond that weighs over 0.40 carats. Learn more about diamonds in our six-part series, beginning here.
+What is the quality of your colored-gemstones?
Just like our diamonds, our colored gemstones are classed as “bridal quality.” We do our best to select gemstones that are eye-clean and nothing short of AAA in quality. Due to natural formation patterns, rubies and emeralds may have minor eye-visible inclusions, but in most other cases, your gems will be eye-clean. Learn more about gemstones by reading our blog.
+How are your gemstones priced?
At AZEERA, we provide you with quality pieces at a fair price. By sourcing and cutting many of the gems ourselves, we eliminate the need for a middleman. This allows us to cut our costs and pass these savings on to you.
+Why choose your gemstones over others?
In Sanskrit, AZEERA means “fire”—referring to the brilliance you see inside a gem. Each of our gemstones is carefully crafted to capture its own unique fire and radiance through skilled craftsmanship and the highest quality of color, cut, and clarity.
