As many of you already know, I am moving the business to the UK. It’s been an amazing ten years in Hong Kong but it’s time for me to return to my home now and give the kids some roots. I’m looking forward to daffodils and bluebells, strawberries, clean air and water, decent pubs, so many things! Before I leave I need to drop my stock levels a bit so I am offering a flash sale – 40% off for the next day. Just use code MOVING40 at checkout! This is the last sale I will run before I leave, so don’t miss it! Click here to shop.
Some of the sharp-eyed among you may have noticed that I’ve been doing more offers than usual and the reason for that is that, after 10 years in Hong Kong we are finally moving back to the UK and Joopy Gems is moving too! I’m trying to reduce my stock levels a bit before returning, to try and reduce the overall cost of bringing them to the UK. I’m doing a time-limited 2 day sale of 35% off all stock – unless stocks fall below where I want them in which case I’ll stop it sooner.
Hong Kong has been really good to us and I’ve loved living there. It is still the most interesting, fascinating multi-layered and vibrant place I have ever lived. Although things have been difficult recently, our return is more due to family reasons – to be close to my mum and for the children to attend school in the UK. I’m excited that I’ll be able to offer a better deal for UK customers – no VAT and no Royal Mail international handling fee as well as fast delivery times. For non-UK customers, there will be little change.
To enjoy the sale, you can use code MOVING35 on pretty much all stock. Click here to shop the sale.
Just started is my June 2018 de-stash sale. Absolutely huge range of stock on sale; samples, end of line and surplus stock at breathtaking discounts, up to 95% on some lines. The clue is in the title; everything needs to go! I’ve got some really amazing products, white topaz, tourmaline, garnet, amethyst, citrine, peridot…something for everyone! So click here to shop the sale, and remember, everything is limited and once it’s gone it’s gone!
Alot of people were interested in these: calibrated bi-colour tourmaline rounds, ovals and pears. It’s taken me so long to get them listed, and I wanted to have them listed in time for my sale but I didn’t quite, so I’ve extended the sale. If you like these, you can get them on a 25% discount until Wednesday midnight 29th November. The rounds come in 4mm, 5mm, 6mm and 7mm and the pears and ovals in 3x4mm, 6x4mm and 7x5mm. They are all priced according to weight and how good the colour is. To browse the entire collection, click here. Coupon code FIREGEM25 will get you 25% off until midnight, Wednesday 29th November EST.
This is the biggest discount I’ve ever done and it’s open from now until close of play on Cyber Monday (27th Nov). It’s a straight 25% off all gemstones, including sale items (eek!) and it really is a make the most of it situation as I keep my margins quite small, so I simply can’t offer big discounts frequently. It’s a coupon code – FIREGEM25 – and you can use it more than once if you like! Click here to browse our Hong Kong shop or here to browse our USA one. It’s also on in both Etsy shops, but you don’t need the code for those as the discount is already marked up. So get shopping and get your sparkle on!
Aaaand there’s more! I came across these little beauties earlier today and thought they need to find new and happy homes. They are pretty large freeform labradorite cabochons in the 20-30 carat, 20-30mm range. Standard grade material, so inclusions, fractures and a sort of translucent dark grey body material. But the flash is amazing – there are a couple of really striking pinstripes, and that one up in the top left corner is my favourite. I keep wanting to write a series on ‘In Praise of Inclusions’ and that stone is a real case in point – lots of fine, little fractures that look like the delicate veining on a leaf, and with a superb bright gold flash. You can find these little chaps here. Prices start from $9 per stone, and they are all on a 50% discount.
Still available in the tourmaline de-stash are a few of these strands of tourmaline rough beads. All different colours; some bi-, some parti-colours. Strands are 16 inches long and the beads are variable in size, but I would say on average in the 10mm range. They are on a fantastic 45% discount, from $35.50 to $20 per strand and you can find them here.
My de-stash sale continues, this time with a focus on tourmaline baguettes and bi- and parti-colour mixes. Up to 35% discount, and these are normal stock items, no seconds. I’ve got a lot of new tourmaline stock coming in November and I’m keen to clear out the old. Keep your eyes out over the next few days as I add more items to this section! Items are mostly only available in the Hong Kong store, but I have a free-shipping coupon running until the end of the month to make things easier: O17FS1

I am having my first ever de-stash sale – end of lines, surplus stock, plus the odd second. There’s some amazing bargains to be had, with up to 90% discounts and obviously the best stuff will go first! I’ve got single stones and lots, and to sweeten the deal even more, I’m offering a free standard ship: use code O17FS1 – this will also work to take $7.50 off your shipping should you choose express post. I’ll be continuing to add items over the next few days, so do keep checking in – you’re bound to find something! These items are only available in the Hong Kong shop, and do please check descriptions carefully – I’ve been really clear as to the reason for the discount in each case – as all items are sold on a no return basis.
