All About Us
MAYS Exotic Gems & Jewellery was first established in 1992 in Myanmar (Burma). We are dealers of precious colour gemstones and gold jewellery specialising in Burmese Ruby, Sapphires, Spinels and Jadeite Jade. This is a family run business. We are Burmese. Our direct connection with Burma means we are able to supply the Australian and International gems markets with quality natural gemstones at competitive prices. After many years in the industry, we are able to source our gemstones directly from the mines and gem dealers in remote areas of Burma. Being Burmese, we have access to areas where foreign access is restricted. Generally, Burmese gemstones that have been brought out to the international markets through Thailand, Hong Kong and even New York have been exchanged through many trades and it’s reflected on their over inflated prices, compared to us. Why pay more when you can buy directly from a Burmese.
We manufacture our own Jewellery and is handmade is Myanmar by expert jewellers to the highest craftsmanship. All our Jewellery is made with 18 carat yellow gold unless otherwise stated. We are able to provide a more competitive pricing on our Jewellery because it’s imported from Myanmar and not made here in Australia. The cost to manufacture a piece of Jewellery is much higher in Australia than in Burma. Therefore, we are able to provide you with the same quality handmade Jewellery but at a much reasonable price. We invite all customers to visit our shop in Melbourne, Australia. Guarantee best price and quality natural Burmese Gemstones and Jewellery.
To source rare and fine-quality gemstones to supply the Australian and International markets at reasonable prices.
Before our establishment in Australia, we were one of the biggest exporters of gemstones and jewellery from Myanmar. We operated five stores in Yangon and Mandalay and one of the first companies to hold an official Myanmar Gems Export licence from the government. We began by selling Burmese Jade in the famous Bogyoke Market in Yangon, 1992. Then, moved to a shop in FMI centre Yangon, 1994 and progressed from there to opening 5 more stores around Myanmar.
