Gemfields is the world’s leading producer of responsibly sourced emeralds and rubies.

In 2007, The Pallinghurst Group identified the coloured gemstone sector as an “overlooked” sector that offered a unique investment opportunity to unlock value by bringing capital, scale and professionalism to a fragmented industry. The Pallinghurst Group sourced a proprietary transaction to acquire a leading emerald mine in Zambia, and merged this with Gemfields plc, developing the combined business into a market leading producer. Gemfields subsequently acquired and developed a large ruby deposit in Mozambique and is now the world’s largest coloured gemstone producer.
