‘The Value of Colours’ by Constantin Wild goes digital

Dear gemstone lovers,
mine is the glittering world of coloured gemstones. I provide some deep insights into it in my book ‘The Value of Colours’. In pictures and words, I have set down here some of the things I’ve had the opportunity to learn, see and experience in some 30 years as a coloured gemstone merchant. There are stories about special stones and accounts of my travels to far-off lands. Always on the lookout for even more beautiful, rarer and more valuable specimens – and always driven by my passion, my enthusiasm, my fascination for those wonderful colourful treasures.

I’d like to share that enthusiasm with you. Indeed I hope to inspire you with it. That’s why the English, German, traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese versions of my book are now available to you here in my blog. Simply scroll down a little further, start browsing – and don’t forget to tell your friends, relatives and acquaintances about it!

By the way: there’ll be more editions coming soon. So stay tuned.

Sparkling greetings
Constantin Wild

English edition:
‘The Value of Colours – wild about gems’

Constantin Wild (*1964) comes from a gemstone family: he runs the family enterprise Constantin Wild GmbH & Co. KG,
founded in 1847, and represents the fourth generation of that family in doing so.

Wild lets the reader look into his safe and narrates the history of some very special gems. There are episodes from his life as a gemstone merchant, and stories of his family and his home town Idar-Oberstein, Germany’s ‘gemstone metropolis’. The qualified gemmologist tells of experiences involving all aspects of these coveted coloured gems, shows his favourites and explains the fine art of gemstone cutting. And he takes the reader with him on his journeys all over the world, which have but a single goal: that of finding even more beautiful, better and more valuable gemstones.

‘The Value of Colours’ is a very personal (picture) book. The author is an enthusiast, a man whose profession is also his favourite hobby: a man who is ‘wild about gems’.
