Conversation pieces are the forte of Saboo Fine Jewels, a Hong Kong-based jewellery and gemstone manufacturer that deals in top-quality coloured gemstones, special-cut diamonds and high jewellery creations using only the finest of materials.
The Saboo family has been steeped in the world of jewellery and gemstones since 1935 when patriarch Chand Bihari Saboo started with the trading and manufacturing of coloured gemstones in India. In 1986, his sons Rajendra and Surendra set up Saboo Fine Jewels in Hong Kong, focusing equally on gemstones and jewellery. The company has sales operations in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the US.
Saboo Fine Jewels’ loose stone business revolves around fine heated and unheated Burmese rubies and Zambian emeralds that it buys at auctions and then cuts at its manufacturing facilities in Thailand and India.
These gem-quality stones are much sought after by high-end jewellery manufacturers around the world, according to third-generation family member Pranay Saboo, a director in the company. The Chinese market is particularly taken by Saboo Fine Jewels’ exceptional offerings, he noted.
The company has also developed its own Fusion cut for diamonds, which gives a half-carat stone the appearance of a 70 pointer, said Saboo.
