I am a new member to IGS and an alumni member of GIA. I am just about to make my first purchase of Rough Blue Sapphires from Nigeria. My plan is to have them cut in Thailand and then send them for appraisal at the GIA. Once Get the stones back then I believe hard part begins - finding a buyer.
I would appreciate it if the experience members of the forum could give me some guidance, please. Am I on the right path or do I need to take a step back?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
