Diamonds, Gems & Jewellery
As one of the world's steadiest suppliers of top-quality Ceylon Sapphires and seventy-five other types of gemstones, Sri Lanka is one of the most important countries in the world when it comes to gem and jewellery, despite its small size.
Hailed as the mythical Tarshish, the legendary island of invaluable gemstones, Sri Lanka has been the source of many celebrated gemstones, pearls and luxury jewellery throughout history and has a long association with the international gem and jewellery trade. Today, Sri Lanka is the ninth-largest exporter of precious stones to the global market and one of the five most important gem bearing nations of the world.
In addition to our globally celebrated Ceylon Sapphires, Sri Lanka is also a celebrated destination for rubies, moonstones and Sri Lankan lapidaries excel at faceting gemstones and diamonds to its fullest lustre.
