This series captures the intrigue, jeopardy and rewards of the world’s gem trade, every step of the way. Viewers will follow gem dealer Ron LeBlanc, geologist Bernie Gaboury and jewelry maven Diane Robinson as they travel to remote regions in search of gemstones. A stone purchased for $4,000 at the source can jump to $50,000 when it has been flawlessly cut, and by the time it hits the market, can skyrocket to a quarter of a million dollars. Or, if botched during the cutting, can become practically worthless.
