Umba sapphires from Tanzania
Maison Piat is specialised in trading and cutting exceptional natural coloured gemstones. Using ancestral know-how, Emmanuel Piat is driven by the constant search for innovation. The team continually improves cutting to close perfection and to propose new faceting to designers.
The company is based in Paris, Geneva and Bangkok, and aims to provide creators and international high-jewellery companies with the service and reliability that have forged its reputation. Its contacts with production sites and international organisations help to keep it continually informed.
In 2013, the company was awarded the title of Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company), which acknowledges the excellence of its know-how. In 2019, the company is the first to be RJC (Responsible Jewelry Council) labeled in coloured gemstones.
Since then, Emmanuel Piat favors supplies from local actors recognized for their actions and proximity to the miners. Maison piat is committed to finding more and more ethical stones directly from the mine to meet the demands of its customers, especially with Moyo Gems.
