We Now Accept Payment by Bitcoin

We accept Bitcoin

We are now accepting payment by Bitcoin, the most popular cryptocurrency. Bitcoin has begun to fulfill its promise in e-commerce, and can lower costs for both merchants and consumers.

To make a payment by Bitcoin, submit your order from our Checkout page and select the Bitcoin payment option. You will then receive an email with our Bitcoin address to make your payment from your Bitcoin wallet.

We can also accept payment in other cryptocurrencies if you wish, including Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple.

All of our transactions are computed in US dollars, and then converted to Bitcoin at the time of payment, using the current exchange rate from the Coinbase Bitcoin exchange.

Our usual 10 day return period applies to gems purchased with Bitcoin. Please note that in the event of a refund you will receive the Bitcoin equivalent of your original purchase in US dollars (not including shipping and insurance, which are not refundable).

For Bitcoin investors who are looking to diversify their holdings, rare gemstones are an attractive option. Gemstone investing is not for everyone. But for those who love fine gems and beautiful jewelry, rare gems have a good history of increasing in value over time. When the stock market is declining and currency is losing value, gemstones tend to be a reliable store of value that is also compact, portable and private.

Though gemstones are not as liquid as gold, a high quality Burmese ruby or Ceylon sapphire will always retain value. New discoveries, like the valuable neon Spinel discovered in Mahenge, Tanzania in 2007, provide new opportunities for collectors. But in general, the world demand for fine gemstones far exceeds the supply, and gemstone prices mainly move upward over time.
