Greenland Ruby Launches Virtual B2B Marketplace
RubyCloud will provide the trade 24/7 access to its inventory online.
The colored stone company, which mines ruby and pink sapphire in Aappaluttoq, Greenland, has announced the launch of a new online marketplace called RubyCloud.
Developed by software company GemCloud, RubyCloud offers manufacturers, designers, and retailers access to an extensive inventory of cut and polished gems from Greenland.
The online marketplace is accessible at any time and continually updated as new gems become available for sale. It allows users to filter by gem type, color, cut, carat weight, and more.
Each stone comes with a 360-degree video as well as high-quality photos meant to show the color true to the eye, the company said.
Interested parties will need to go through a registration process to see prices and make purchases via RubyCloud.
“Greenland Ruby has entered a new digital era of gemstone dealing, and one which I truly believe to be an industry game-changer,” said Greenland Ruby CCO Hayley Henning.
“In what I also believe to be yet another first for our company, we are excited to be able to display our entire inventory online, and ship to almost every corner of the globe. RubyCloud has been in the works for quite some time, but the last two years have really proved that a digital inventory viewing and buying platform is a necessity," she said.
"RubyCloud will allow each and every gemstone from Greenland Ruby to be searched and ‘seen,’ giving our customers the opportunity to make selections and purchases according to their jewelry collections and/or design requirements.”
The company also just announced it has become a certified member of the Responsible Jewellery Council.
To hear more from Greenland Ruby or see a demonstration of RubyCloud, visit them at the AGTA GemFair event in Tucson, slated for Feb. 1-6 at the Tucson Convention Center.
