Buying a loose gemstone may not be very intuitive and most of us don't understand the potential cost benefits and flexibility of directly purchasing a loose gemstone as opposed to getting a piece of jewelry preset with a gemstone. Let's look at a simple ring below sold by Shane Co. which is a highly reputable fine jewelry store. The center stone is a 1.21 carat Blue Sapphire which will cost the consumer $2,175 plus taxes (~$2,365).
Now look at the 1.20 carat Blue Sapphire to the right sold by Zain Gems. This gemstone is very similar in size and more lustful in color and clarity and will cost the consumer $1,650 which will in return save over $700! That is over a 30% discount! See ring purchasing options below.
