What our customers say
However, for international purchases, the price of your gemstone is exempt from VAT but you will have to pay the taxes and legal obligations of the country of delivery.
We invite you to refer to the customs duties of your country to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
To mesure it, we at Alchimie Paris have established 4 categories, beyond which we do not select and offer stones.
Loupe Clean: The gemstone is free of inclusions with a 10x loupe.
Eye clean: The gemstone is free of inclusions visible to the naked eye, but not necessarily at 10x magnification.
Slightly included: Inclusions are slightly visible to the naked eye, but do not affect the brilliance and beauty of the gemstone.
Moderately included: Inclusions are visible to the naked eye, reflection of light and/or color is slightly inhibited.
At Alchimie Paris, we only accept natural and commonly accepted methods of treatment in jewellery:
Heating: this is a technique used on many gemstones and consists of reproducing the action of the earth on the gemstone: the gemstones are exposed to a strong heat, which naturally changes their colour and strengthens them.
The oiling of emeralds: Emeralds are naturally included, so they are soaked in baths of colourless oil to fill the cavities (mostly cedar oil).
We also offer untreated gemstones. It is important to note that untreated gemstones are more expensive as they are rarer.
