Wholesale membership offers much more than the benefit of purchasing precious gemstones. Enjoy in-house gemologist support, special price breaks, shipping discounts, full product access to gold and silver and more!
Every diamond you buy from us is certified conflict–free. Rio Grande has earned certification from the Responsible Jewellery Council, verifying that we are in compliance with the Kimberley Accord and that our gemstones, supply chain and facility meet the high standards of the RJC Code of Practices. Further, RJC routinely conducts audits to certify that we are maintaining these standards.
We stand behind every diamond, gemstone, lab-grown diamond and moissanite we sell. Our expert team of in-house graduate gemologists inspects each gemstone before it leaves our facility.
Our close partnerships with miners, suppliers, jewelers and manufacturers provide us with access to unparalleled reserves to source, inspect and recommend.
Learn about the symbols set by the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) that are used to disclose any enhancements applied to gemstones. Use these symbols when you buy, display and sell stone-set jewelry.

"I was so lucky to learn from and work with Saul Bell, Rio Grande's founder." she says. "He was an amazing man. He taught me how important it is to deliver exactly what the customer wants, and then some."
