Experienced & Trustworthy
For two generations Fair East Wind has been sourcing rough gemstones all over the world. That means you can feel confident in our quality, direct importer pricing and expertise.
Whether in the mountains of central Sri Lanka, deep in the mines of Tanzania or at our gemstone cutting facility in Chanthaburi Thailand, we have always sought to bring the greatest value to market. As the Ethiopian, Wello Opals were being discovered, we were there in action, sourcing out the finest. Examples of our Opal collection can be seen on the cover of the Winter 2011 Edition of Gems and Gemology, GIA’s quarterly periodical. (At that time we operated under our parent company, Clear Cut Inc.)
In addition to our experience as International Gem Hunters, our team also includes, GIA Gemologists and world class gemstone artists. Our highly experienced gemstone faceting team is encouraged to think outside of the box and to create their own faceting styles. Whether it is a fine Sapphire, a rare Sphene or a sparkling Blue Zircon, you will love what they create and your can purchase with confidence, knowing that each gem is faceted to the highest standards.
You can rest assured, that whether it is a $20.00 Citrine or a $80,000.00 fine Sapphire, your Fair East Wind Gemstone, will be worthy of the finest design and setting.
Committed to Fair Trade & the Environment
As the world moves more and more towards environmental and social consciousness, buyers are now more than ever concerned about conservation and fair-trade. Fair East Wind’s vision in this area starts with our gemstone cutting staff in Thailand. Each team member is trained and mentored in all aspects of gemstone cutting, as well as in broader, life skills. They are provided with a training that involves development of the whole person. They have educational opportunities for themselves as well as their families.
We also emphasize, environmental sustainability and ‘Fair-Trade’ gems. That is why we have created a close network of trusted, local artisanal miners and gemstone exporters who help us stay close to the source. Many of them have become family friends. So you can make your Fair East Wind Gem purchase with pride and the confidence that comes with knowing that lives are being benefited at every step.
In addition to this, Fair East Wind also gives back to the community in a direct manner. We donate to causes that fight ‘human trafficking’; we support two orphanages and are involved in the mentoring of adults as well as young people in Thailand. So rest assured that your purchase contributes to the greater good.
