Our Story

DSD Thai Gems was founded by Dinesh Agrawal, who brings over 30 years of experience in the colored stones industry, and is seen as a pioneer in the semi-precious gemstone industry, after being one of the first offices in Bangkok, and showcasing a quality service to local factories and export clients. We have consistently maintained the utmost trust of our customers and provide unparalleled servicing to each order. As a result, today we operate a global business, with customers in every major gemstone market, and have maintained our relationships with our customers throughout economic upswings and downturns.

We have an expertise in over 80 different color stones. We procure our rough from various key mining sources in Brazil and Africa. In these stones we are able to produce calibrated sizes (including melee items) as well as free-form sizes according to customer demands. With time, we have continued to add exotic and fantasy cuts to our line of work, and today are the largest supplier of checkerboard, brioletes, and rose cuts in the market. We work together with clients to develop unique cuts to separate their jewelry from the market fads, and examples of these cuts (no proprietary cuts are on display) can be seen in the Fancy Cut section of our website. Our turnaround capacity is our pride, and is testament to our business conduct, and the result of which is seen in satisfied customers choosing to always come back to us.

Realizing what our core competencies are, the following are a highlight of the stones we are supplying regularly: Sky blue topaz, Swiss blue topaz, London blue topaz, Amethyst (Brazil and Africa), Garnet (Mozambique, Zambian, Almandine), Aquamarine, Rhodolite, Iolite, Citrine, Smoky quartz and Peridot. Additionally we work in all different varieties of opaque stones such as Moonstones, Labradorite, Agates, Turquoise and Larimar.

As a one-stop shop for color stones, we offer our customers Ruby (Burma and Mozambique) and Sapphires (Sri Lanka, Thailand, Australia) in calibrated sizes, starting from diamond cut rounds. Our color assortment is consistently best-in-class and offers customers the reliability of a regular supply, which is one of our key capabilities. To differentiate ourselves from the market, we work in only premium color and quality.

For the connoisseur or the high-end jeweler, we offer a selection of special single stones, pairs and suites. These include carefully selected and certified (with key laboratories such as GRS, AIGS and GIA) Rubies, Sapphires, Tanzanite, Spinel, Spessartite, Tourmaline and Zircon. Our ability to tap into our vast networks allows us to procure stones which are not available in the market, and being on the pulse of market prices allows us to remain ahead of competition.

The gemstone industry is built on a foundation of trust and consistency, which are the pillars of our business practice. We welcome any inquiries you may have and endeavor to grow our businesses together, because if our customers have a successful business, we have a successful business.
