There are roughly 200 varieties of natural gemstones known in the world today. Along with precious stones (natural diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires), there are many semi-precious stones, some of which are incredibly rare that their value exceeds many of the most valuable precious gems in the world. Probably, what we most love about precious gemstones is their beauty, durability and rarity.The house of A.P. Shaps carries the most extensive in-house inventory of Colored Gemstones in all of Scandinavia. Visit our boutique or contact our experienced gemologists to hand-pick your favorite(s).
