SKKGems brings to market the combined knowledge and expertise of five generations of gemologists. We have our own sources of rough and self-owned lapidary workshops where we create gems which we sell directly to the public. The primary inventory of SKKGems consists of natural gems from the mines in Kashmir, Skardu, Hunza and Northern Regions of Pakistan bordering Afghanistan. Some of the finest and rarest of gems are found in these foothills of the mighty Karakarom mountain range.
SKKGems sells rough, cabochon and faceted Rubies, Sapphires, Emeralds, Tourmalines, Peridot, Kunzite, Quartz and Topaz and many other gemstones. Our genuine earth mined products are unique and eagerly sought after. This said, we have clients who seek engineered gems and for them SKKGems is able to source some of the finest laboratory created gemstones. While these man made ‘gems’ can never equate the beauty and charm of gems that has taken Mother Nature millennia to create, these synthetic gems have a charm of their own and are increasing in popularity as the natural product becomes progressively difficult to obtain.
