“Emkay has been a primary gemstone source for Gemvara ever since our beginnings. Communication with the Emkay team is easy, clear, and our questions/orders get quick responses. The quality of the gems are consistent and the selection is phenomenal. I would highly recommend using them as a supplier for everyone ranging from smaller companies to larger corporations”

I have been doing business with EMKAY International for over 20 years. They consistently go over and above to satisfy our colored gem needs in a timely manner and with fair pricing. Maurice, with his wealth of knowledge, is a pleasure to work with and has great follow through. I highly recommend EMKAY and anticipate a long continued relationship.
