For centuries, precious gemstones were available only to the very wealthy. However, advancements in mining, transportation, and the science of treatments and synthetics, as well as the emergence of the internet and TV shopping channels, have made a wide variety of gemstones and gemstone jewelery accessible to the general buying public. While these advancements have opened new markets for the trade and new buying opportunities for consumers, proper disclosure of treatments and synthetics has not kept pace with those advancements.

Up to now, the industry has done little to protect consumers from unscrupulous dealers who misrepresent their products. This unresponsiveness toward consumers has had a serious and damaging effect on consumer confidence in the gem and jewelery trade.

Search4Gems is a global online marketplace where consumers can safely buy high quality loose gems, jewelery, tools and other gemology related items from sellers who keep to the highest ethical standards. All Search4Gems sellers must agree to operate in accordance with the Jewelers Ethics Association’s Code of Ethics and the Federal Trade Commission Guides. This creates an environment favorable to consumers and sellers as well by ensuring all items are disclosed properly to consumers, and that all sellers are competing fairly.

Search4Gems sellers deal only in gems, jewelery, gemstone rough, gemological equipment, books, tools, gifts and other related items, offered either at auction or at a fixed price.

All like-minded members of the trade are invited to register for a seller’s account. Registration is free, and all post and listing fees are being waived through October 31, 2009.
