A world-leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones.
In 1882, Peter Carl Fabergé took over his father’s very ordinary jewellery business and quickly transformed it into an international phenomenon. The ordinary became the extraordinarily fashionable. Out went the French 18th century style where diamonds prevailed. In came the design-led artist-jeweller with a penchant for colour through both gemstones and reviving the lost art of enamelling. The craftsmanship was of the very finest standard. This formula made Fabergé irresistible and the ultimate objects to own, as well as the gift of choice.
Today, Fabergé is a member of the Gemfields Group – a world leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones. Fabergé continues its penchant for colour and proudly incorporates gemstones into its creations from Gemfields’ mines in Africa. Gemfields mines rubies in Mozambique and emeralds in Zambia, with an overriding principle to ensure that African gemstones give back to the people of Africa.
Montepuez mine in Mozambique covers 33,600 hectares and is situated on one of the most significant ruby deposits in the world. The Kagem mine in Zambia is the world’s single largest producer of emeralds - covering 41 square kilometres and producing an estimated 25% of emeralds sold globally. Gemfields carries out detailed studies to ensure the environmental impact of operations at each open-pit mine site is minimised, retaining topsoil and returning it upon back-filling to maintain indigenous plants and trees.
