We have the pleasure here of speaking with Rajeesh from KCT Implex, a Bangkok firm specializing in semi-precious and precious stones. Due to a limited amount of time, we only had the opportunity to discuss a few of his stones, but even such a short chat brings out some interesting information.
Our conversation focused mostly on the citrine, ruby, and cubic zirconia arrayed on tidy white trays at their booth. Feel free to listen as we discuss the markets for various stones and the qualities they desire. For example, citrines-the beautiful yellow/gold stone, great for using in silver jewelry, are more popular in their light yellow form amongst the Asian market, with Europeans and Americans preferring darker yellows in their rings and pendants.
There is more to hear and to learn, and the dealer is a knowledgeable and friendly person to talk with, so please join us in enjoying this video.
