Rare & Unique Jewels from Takat

It all begins with a passion for rare and extraordinarily beautiful gems and diamonds, a family trade and unbridled commitment of the Takat Family since 1955. We search all corners of the world for treasures of color wonder: gems that tell stories through the intensity and brilliance of their color; gems that become part of people’s lives so they can further tell stories of love and commitment. To do them justice, we design dreams around them, imbuing them with our family knowledge and reputation. We work closely with the most reputable and responsible partners to ensure the highest standards of quality and ethical processing.

In the hands of our trusted craftsmen, each gem is carefully considered; their expert eyes, skilled hands with decades of training further enhancing nature’s stunning color and beauty through perfect proportioned cuts and designs.

The process of creating one-of-a kind jewels is a balancing act of finesse, artistry and understanding. A jewel that bears our company name is a testament to our inspiration, love and desire that each piece finds the woman it’s meant to, and that its unique nature beckons something special in her soul, and for generations after her.

TAKAT’s jewelry has been showcased on celebrities across the United States, including Joan Rivers on The Tonight Show, Melissa Claire Egan from the The Young and the Restless, and Mayim Bialik from The Big Bang Theory.

TAKAT’s company founder, Haji Nisar Ahmed Takat, comes from an ancient Indian family of precious stone craftsmen. They originate from the historical city of Jaipur, renowned for its roses, which speaks to the poetry, passion and compassion that inspires this family. He was a special man. In his blood ran a passion for exquisite color. He had heart focused on continuing the family trade and building a future for his family, and an eye for gems that would yield the most impressive results. He was also committed to doing right by his employees and clients. In 1955 he opened his first precious stone cutting and polishing business in Jaipur, and in 1976, with sons Siraj Ahmed Takat and Rafeeq Ahmed Takat joining the business, he began trading operations. Today, that original location remains as the TAKAT world flagship.

In 1994, Siraj and Rafeeq decided to explore fine gem trading on a global level, taking their father’s company to trade events around the world, attending the major fairs from Hong Kong and Beijing to New York, Las Vegas, Paris, Basel, Milan and Dubai. Soon after, the brothers established an office in Bangkok. By 2000, Haji’s grandsons were ready to make Takat a Three-Generation commitment and family business, with Rayaz and Irfan opening offices in New York and Hong Kong, respectively.

TAKAT remains a family business founded on providing exceptional gems and jewels, excellence of craftsmanship and service to its clients. Each TAKAT creation is made with meticulous attention to detail and quality, balancing a classic approach to design with the latest developments in technology. The TAKAT style incorporates timeless elegance in a wide selection of distinctive jewelry designed with daring combinations of color, precious metals and gemstones, and innovative materials.

TAKAT is also synonym of going far beyond what is expected or customary. The Takat family believes in treating all people with respect and dignity, and strives to create and foster a diverse and supportive environment in which individuals can realize their maximum potential within the company. Their motto: “Our business success is a reflection of the quality and skill of our people.” They are dedicated to building a better future for their customers and employees and are honored that many of the world’s finest jewelers and collectors trust them to source and create exclusive jewels for them.

Wyoming Jade at JOGS Tucson Show: The Best in the World

Recently at the JOGS TUCSON WINTER SHOW 2013, Sean Jordan brought out beautiful Wyoming Jade, considered the best in the world. Wyoming Jade was heavily mined between 1940-60 in the Granite mountains in Wyoming. Since Jade does not naturally occur in Wyoming, it has been found in deposits around the Granite mountains classifying it as a nephrite Jade. Which is a stone so close to Jade that it is basically the same thing, the only way to tell is through tests such as x-ray or chemical. This beautiful stone ranges from opaque to translucent and comes in many shades of green as well as black and white. This stone can go for $2-$75 or more a pound depending on the stone. Many places sell imitations and real ones are sold at very high prices. Come to JOGS Tucson Gen and Jewelry Show for the best prices on Wyoming Jade.

International Jewelry Gem Show

Jewelry is something you cannot fully appreciate without taking a closer look. Catalogs, flyers, TV commercials etc. are fine but when it comes to fully appreciating the beauty of jewelry and gems, you have to see them physically and be able to touch them. JOGS International Exhibits organizes the international jewelry show, which is the best place to browse and shop for bejeweled accessories. JOGS’ international gem show displays amazing collections of jewelry and gems. There is silver, pearl, sterling silver, gold, white gold, diamond, wholesale jewelry beads, and mineral jewelries to choose from. From stately jewelry to party jewelry, from tribal ornaments to daily wear trinkets – everything is available in our jewelry trade shows and there is something for every budget.

This Year’s Trends

Before going to the JOGS international jewelry show, you should know that this year, the world of jewelries is being ruled by estate and antique jewelry. Simply put, the old fashion is new again. Heavy, ornate designs are “in”. So, why go for something contemporary when you can stand out wearing an antique ornament?

There Is More to Gems than Beauty

Gemstones look fantastic but they have more to them than just beauty. They are often divided into two categories namely precious and semi-precious. Every gemstone has properties like the power to influence the health and fortune of a person. Wearing gems can help treat a physical ailment. Expert gemstone cutters visit our international gem show with their own collection and sometimes with jewelry manufacturers. You can meet and interact with them, take a good look at their work and ask for suggestions as to which gem would suit you best. You can also witness the launch of a new gemstone.

Why You Must Attend

Under one roof, you will be able to browse collections from all over the world, interact with designers, buy raw materials such as wholesale jewelry beads and even learn jewelry making. These prospects are exciting for someone who loves ornaments. In no jewelry boutique will you find such a diverse collection that you will find in our jewelry trade shows. From designers to manufacturers to wholesalers – everyone related to creating, packaging and selling jewelry attends the JOGS International Jewelry Show.

Five Star Gems brings Alexandrite from India to Tucson Gem Show

Five Star Gems AlexandriteWhen you spend your professional life surrounded by beautiful gems and jewelry, it is all too easy to get a little jaded (sorry for the pun). What might draw ‘Ooohs’ and ‘Aaahs’ in any other circumstances, can begin to bring just a raised eyebrow, if even that. So, like the many thousands from around the world who flock to Tucson for the annual Tucson Gem &Mineral Show, I keep my eyes peeled for the unique or the extraordinary.

Luckily, this year I found a number of rare, unusual and exotic stones in tucked away corners of the show. One of the exhibitors in one of these corners this year is Ikram Ahmed from Five Star Gems who is exhibiting at the end of one of the grand halls of JOGS Gem & Jewelry show. What’s so special about this exhibitor’s offerings? Well, he has some excellent examples of a pretty rare stone sourced in an unexpected place—Alexandrite from India; and boy, is it nice!

I took a few minutes of Mr. Ahmed’s time, and asked him about his gems, and will share with you what I learned from him.

High Quality Alexandrite PileFound only in small pockets, veins and mines of Alexandrite being nearly unheard of, the beautiful gems Mr. Ahmed brings to Tucson are sourced by his buyers from small villages in rural India. Rarely measuring more than a few carats in size “Larger stones are too rare, no one finds large 10 carat Alexandrite of good quality.” Even though they have been known for about 400 years now, and deposits outside of Russia have been found in Brazil, and more recently in India, this is one of the rarer stones available on the market.

These wonderful stones exhibit the green to red shift characteristic of the dichroic Alexandrite; which is the trait which draws so much interest to them. It was explained to me that the percentage of change, whether it be 20% or 90% was one of the most important aspects of this precious gem, and that care should be taken when examining them under different lights. High Quality Alexandrite “White light will show off the green color, which should be a deep green with some browns or reddish tints. These other colors will help you determine how much ‘shift’ will occur when you look at the stone under yellow light or in sunlight. When away from white light, you want to look for bright flashes of red, and a nice overall reddish tint to the stone.”

As the conversation turned to valuing the stones, and insuring that the buyer or designer doesn’t overpay, some guidelines from Mr. Ahmed were very helpful. For ‘average’ stones, that is stones with a 20-35% shift in colors, weighing less than 3 carats, you should expect to pay between $3-500 per carat. Higher quality stones, those with say, 80-90% shift in color are much more dear, with 1 carat stones fetching about $3,500 a carat, 3-4 carat stones bringing $7,000 per carat, and nearly unheard of 10 carat and higher stones bringing $15,000 per carat or better due to their rarity.

JOGS Celebrating its 10th anniversary

With the almost overwhelming number of venues that make

up Tucson’s annual Gem and Mineral Society’s huge event, it’s almost easy to forget that each one represents another independent show-within-a-show. One of the largest is celebrating its 10th anniversary—JOGS Gem & Jewelry Show 2013, promoted and organized by Vitaliy Mayzenberg.

Located near Palo Verde and Irvington Road, near the interchange for Interstate 10, JOGS Gem & Jewelry is hosted within the Tucson Expo Center, a sprawling indoor space with four distinct wings and ballrooms; all situated on 25 acres of property and parking. Over the last 10 years, the Expo Center’s General Manager Scott Gardner has been instrumental in helping Vitaliy and Irene Mayzenberg realize their vision of creating a truly international show featuring buyers, designers and manufacturers from around the world; catering to the wholesale buyer who is looking for the best and latest in international jewelry trends.

Fortunately for Tucson, and all involved, each year sees that dream coming closer to fruition; and this year-their 10th anniversary demonstrates very well how Mr. Mayzenberg’s vision is nearing reality.

To help understand the appeal of the show, for both buyers and exhibitors, and how the envisioned growth has taken place; I spoke to several buyers and to a few exhibitors. Their reasons for returning year after year are sometimes surprising, but in the end, boil down to the essentials of good business.

NATURAL TURQUOISE BEAUTY

My name is Alyona and I am a jewelry designer and founder of DIDAJ Jewelry and Fashion.

I’ve been creating my unique designs for many years. It is my passion and gives me a great deal of satisfaction, especially when I see what joy it brings to my clientele, all over the world.

Although my customers vary in age and interests, they all share a common love for jewelry and a desire for beautiful things.My background, from a very young age, was in artistic expression through dance. I received a Masters Degree in Artistic Direction and Choreography, from the Kiev State Art University and was a professional performer while living in the Ukraine.

I traveled the world for five years, until I immigrated with my family to the United States, in 1993.

During my first few years there, I used my experience and education to its fullest, teaching in many of the top academies and dance schools, in the Chicago area. I also helped produce and choreograph shows for a number of ice skaters and ice dancers, some of whom went on to become the top skaters in the US.

I look to many of my life experiences for inspiration. From my fascination with art history, to my observations of nature, I draw upon a wide variety of shapes, textures, and materials, to create something unique and exciting. All the products I offer are my unique and original creations. I carefully oversee every facet of production, to give you unmatched, world class quality. I stand behind each and every product and offer my personal quality guarantee.

My new Collection brings together colorful Italian leather, Silver and Peacock Baroque Pearls, various colors of Coral, Turquoise, Amethyst, Peridot, Citrine, Aquamarine, and Tourmaline. I very proud of this new collection and hope you find it as exciting as I do.
