This book is about buying sapphires. Whether you want to buy a ready-made piece of jewellery or a gemstone on its own, this is the book you need to read. It is a ‘how to’ guide for tourists – for people
with no or little knowledge about gemstones or sapphires.


Much more than that, though, I want you to experience the fun and sheer romance of buying a beautiful gem abroad. Perhaps you are hoping to treat yourself or a loved one to an extra-special souvenir.


Perhaps you are celebrating an anniversary or honeymoon. Perhaps you are even planning to pop the question. Whatever your reason, what could be more meaningful than buying your gemstone in the very country whose earth formed. 


I want you to feel confident about buying a gem in a foreign country, and I want you to have a good experience doing so.
