Anibal Torres' inspiring journey began 28 years ago when a family member in Colombia gave him an emerald as a gift. This thoughtful gift is what ignited everything.
After Anibal came to Australia with his family, he brought with him a collection of carefully selected Emeralds directly from a mine in Colombia to supply jewellers in Australia.
Since then, Anibal’s journey has led him to become the largest merchant of Colombian Emeralds to the Jewellery Retail Industry in Australia, to now creating an international presence.
Today, having created close relationships with the world’s largest Emerald mining industry in Colombia, and having shares in one of the largest mining areas ‘Gachala’ where the famous ‘GACHALA EMERALD’ of 858 carats was found originally unearthed in 1967. The Gachala is one of the largest rough emeralds found to date, and was donated to the Smithsonian Institution by Harry Winston.
Torres Jewel Co. is proud to say that they are the largest Colombian Emerald importer to Australia; directly sourcing from some of the world’s largest Emerald mines. Because of this, the quality and price that Torres Jewel Co. offers is unbeatable.
