Buying and Sourcing Crystals, Gems & Jewelry for IVC
Over the last 15 Years IVC has developed relationships with all of our sources to maintain longtime connections. Every crystal and gemstone here at InnerVision Crystals is sourced directly from independent miners around the world. I met many connections while doing the major Gem & Mineral Show circuit from 2009-2017. After 2017 I decided to focus completely online as the business has become one of the premier online Crystal & Moldavite sites in the world.
I am very set on a few things when it comes to doing business. 1. Every single person, from the miner to the client must be happy with the transaction. No one must feel taken advantage of in any way. There is enough to go around for all to be abundant and prosperous when done properly. 2. When it comes to Gemstones, and crystals - Natural stones only. No synthetics / chemical treatments or dyes. Only the best quality available. 3. I only deal with independent miners or small mines where the crystals and stones are legally and ethically sourced. From Moldavite to Herkimers to Phenakite and Brandbergs, I know my sources personally and we work to bring you the best quality stones on the market at the best prices we can offer, We are extremely competitive in that regard for the Quality we carry. There are 1000 mass produced, cheap companies out there, ebay & etsy is flooded with them. We are known worldwide for Quality, we help set the standard for the industry. It is the only way to truly offer clients the best crystals & you have to get as close to the mine source as possible when operating at this level.
When it comes to gemstones, IVC works direcly with a company in Sri Lanka, New World Gems & our cutters in Thailand. All of our stones are cut from our own rough that I personally select. Working closely with a few of the best Custom Lapidary Artists in the world allows us to offer very unique stones & can have truly unique one of a kind heir looms created for jewelry or collection.
When buying single loose stones I deal only with my personal sources. Even most retail jewelry chains today are using synthetic / Lab stones and no one cares or is the wiser, and they charge the same $. You have to be educated when it comes to gemstones. Do your research. Learn about the stones you love. Experience trumps all other things. IVC offers both single stones and Wholesale for jewelers as well. Jewelry here at IVC is a very special thing. As we expand this end of the business we continue to add many styles, both using CAD / Wax & Handmade Jewelry. We work very closely with a few of the best up and coming Jewelry designers to release custom one of a kind high end jewelry hand made pieces in very limited production runs.
So there is a little peek inside how I source stones here at InnerVision Crystals
