Plot Synopsis

This reality series follows jewelry expert Diane Robinson, gem dealer Ron LeBlanc, and geologist Bernie Gaboury, as they travel around the globe in search of jewels, gems, and precious stones. From emeralds in Colombia and moonstone in Sri Lanka to pearls in Myanmar and topaz in Brazil, behind the glamour of these precious stones, there's always the risk of danger. The team enlists security and proper precautions to get in and out of each country safely. They quickly size up the players in each locale, ensure if the goods are authentic or potential fakes, and negotiate the best price before the stone is cut. If the stone is not cut flawlessly, it can render an entire purchase worthless. Each one-hour episode focuses on a gem-finding trip in a different country, including: Vietnam, where the team tries scoring rubies under the government's radar, but are tailed by an agent intent on making sure they leave empty handed; Tanzania for tanzanite; Brazil for imperial topaz and aquamarine; and many more countries, like Cambodia, Colombia, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Zambia.
