Committed to ethically mined and responsibly sourced stones, MUZO is leading a mining revolution, by improving its mining techniques in tandem with living and working conditions of its workforce. Promoting the mine-to-market approach and integrating the supply chain from the top down, MUZO now controls the entire process from extraction through cutting, all the way to the distribution of its emerald collections. From intrinsic gem attributes to corporate social responsibility, MUZO most prestigious emeralds are certified by renowned international labs (Gemtech, SSEF, Gübelin, AGL, GRS). Today, MUZO is also the first and only colour stone brand to deliver an in-house certificate of origin and traceability (certified ISO 9000) for all of its gems.
A GRAND LAUNCH AT BASELWORLD 2016 MUZO is exhibiting a collection of more than 2000 exceptional emeralds, comprising of various cuts, colours, hues, pairs as well as outstanding pieces such as a pair of emerald-cut specimens weighing 40.41 carats and 42.25 carats.
