About Us

We at Mingems are sincerely committed to offer truly valuable finest quality Ceylon sapphires to our customers. Our sapphires are sourced directly from mines in Sri Lanka and trusted suppliers with whom we have established trade relationships decades ago.  The rough sapphires are further polished and cut to unmatching perfection by skilled artisans and gem cutters.

Mingems Company was founded 60 years ago in the city of gems – Ratnapura, Sri Lanka. With the growing popularity of ceylon sapphires in Europe, our third generation founder Minshaf developed a desire to relocate the operations to Europe and serve global customers. Fulfilling his desire, we moved to the Hatton Garden, London’s iconic jewellery quarter in the year 2014.



Minshaf is dealing with ceylon sapphires from a very young age. His extensive hands-on experience along with the knowledge he acquired from his ancestors made him a specialist in grading sapphires. Our collection of handpicked exotic ceylon sapphires speaks for his expertise.


We are member of the highly prestigious LDB ( London Diamond Bourse). The London Diamond Bourse is one of 30 Bourses in 22 countries that enjoy membership of The World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB). Members of LDB follow the highest standard of trade and best business practices and buying from them assures the purchase is from a professional of good standing.


Our vision is to satisfy our customers by offering them meticulously chosen, truly valuable impeccable Ceylon sapphires which make bespoke jewellery.
