Storyline

Series captures all the intrigue, jeopardy and rewards of the world's gem trade, every step of the way. In each episode, viewers will follow veteran gem dealer Ron LeBlanc, geologist Bernie Gaboury and jewelry maven Diane Robinson as they travel to remote regions of the world in search of gemstones they can turn into a small fortune. A stone purchased for $4,000 at the source can instantly jump to $50,000 when it has been flawlessly cut, and by the time it hits the market, can be skyrocket to a quarter of a million dollars. Or, if botched during the cutting, can become practically worthless. Written by Travel Channel

Interesting, Informative and Entertaining
11 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Gem Hunt (Travel Channel) Finally a show on the Travel Channel that involves travel! The destinations are exotic and the gem hunters are interesting characters. The gem deals are intense and the stones themselves are stunning. I also like the fact that I learn something new on every episodes - these people are intelligent, well spoken and experts in their fields, which is refreshing to see on reality TV. For example I discovered that sapphires and rubies are the exact same type of stone, it is just their colour which makes them different classifications of stones. Not only do you get the chance to see great stones and stone deals but you also get an inside look into mines and how stones are mined (not to mention the actual miners who work in these mines.)
