Jocalia Palatium™, your source for coloured gemstones and limited-edition wearable art. We are located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Based on our gemmological knowledge, we source coloured gemstones through our reputable network for other industry professionals such as goldsmiths, jewellers and jewellery designers, who may be looking for a replacement stone or a custom gemstone for their clients. We sometimes sell gemstones to the public as well. Please contact us at 613-882-0217 or firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and availability of our gems, or to arrange for a private viewing. Our gems can be viewed online at gems.jocaliapalatium.com Gem colour can be different from one computer screen to the other. We recommend that you view gemstones in person.
We also design and commission limited numbers of jewellery products from goldsmiths and master smiths in Canada for retail. Our jewellery products are 100% locally made in Canada (with imported gemstones) by talented Canadians. In most cases, they are one-of-a-kind or original limited-edition jewellery that you can be certain no one else has. Since we work closely with industry professionals, we can assist you with other services such as gem identification, gem and jewellery appraisal, ring resizing, jewellery repair and cleaning, as well as custom jewellery design.
At Jocalia Palatium™, we endeavour to provide accurate disclosure: disclosing whether stones are natural untreated, natural treated, natural simulants/imitations, or synthetics (laboratory-created). We have a registered gemmologist on site who is equipped with basic gemmological tools and equipment such as a microscope, a refractometer, a polariscope, a dichroscope, a spectroscope, and a Chelsea filter, that can be used in our gem identification.
For the finer quality gems, we will seek confirmation of authenticity, at the buyer’s request, from an independent gem testing lab that is equipped with advanced technology. In cases where the cost is considered too high to warrant such independent testing, we will endeavour to conduct our in-house testing with our lab equipment and disclose our findings as accurately and honestly as possible. Graduated from the International School of Gemology, our registered gemmologist is committed to ethical business practices and disclosure of gemstone enhancements.
In line with our commitment to professionalism, we aim to support local employment and businesses. We design our own jewellery and work with talented professionals to perfect one-of-a-kind or limited-edition jewellery that is proudly made in Canada.
