We are a veteran owned business registered with State of Texas.
During my many overseas deployments, I came across bazaars all over Afghanistan and Iraq selling gemstones to our service members and civilians at an unheard price. Most service members / civilians were unaware of the premium they were paying for low-medium quality stones. Many unknowingly were purchasing low quality treated and/or heated-glass filled gems at a regular untreated/unheated high-quality gemstone price.
After much thought, I decided to take the next step from being a hobbyist to a local gemstone dealer and provide folks quality gemstones at a reasonable price. I named the business after my 7-year daughter Nava, the future owner of the business. Nava means beautiful in Hebrew so the name I felt was appropriate (i.e. Beautiful Gemstones).
At Nava Gemstones, we focus on supplying gemstones of superior cut, color and clarity. All of our gemstones are VS, VVS or IF-Loupe quality assured. All our high-end gemstones and Jewelry are GIA certified and their birth is registered as an authentic gemstone. So you know you are purchasing the very best in quality. Our pictures are not enhanced with studio lighting or software tricks for a quick sale. Most of the pictures are taken under natural light (in the evening hours) to show its true beauty.
Why Buy Loose Gemstones Instead of Pre-Set Jewelry?
There are many reasons, but mainly it comes down to quality, choice and value. When buying your gemstones loose instead of a pre-set stone, you can make sure that you are getting the best quality, choice and value for your money.
