 Announcement by AACC Member Vicore:

 VICORE Logo fine Gems

VICORE Fine Gemstones and Diamonds
is extremely proud to announce
the introduction of two great new products
to complete our prestigious line of dazzling gemstones.



After much due diligence and a huge effort by the entire team at VICORE, we may introduce a new line of the most rare and beautiful rubies and sapphires originating from Myanmar and Sri Lanka.


Sapphire kleinThe task of bringing these incredible gemstones to the market has come from a huge surge in demand for high level gemstones being the big three namely emeralds, rubies and sapphires. After much research we concluded that there are numerous sources of ruby and sapphire deposits in the world, but most stones are of inferior quality. This means that the low-priced segment of the market is flooded with stones and as such their value drops. Precisely the opposite is the case for stones in the highest segment: their value is predicted to increase indefinitely.


VICORE was founded to provide clients with tangible and portable options to preserve their wealth. Contrary to common belief gemstones are not only of interest to high net worth individuals. In fact the majority of our clients are hard-working, ordinary people, who wish to preserve their wealth by making well informed decisions.  Now VICORE offers them a viable solution.


VICORE’s goal is to enable wealth keeping oriented collectors to buy and sell certified collectible gemstones, without inflated retail mark-up, offering minimal fees and total transparency. VICORE only provides untreated stones without a tint, hue or overtone and exclusively trades white diamonds, natural fancy colored diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. Gemstones considered collectable are those displaying great clarity and color, excellent cut to maximize the gem's sparkle, and are larger than commonly found.


VICORE will gladly assist you during the entire purchase process.
