responsibly sourced stones + materials

We only work with designers who are conscientious of more than just diamond sourcing (please ask us more), but the impact on the environment and communities they are supporting. Our designers use ethically sourced stones, many times even recycled diamonds and almost all of them use recycled gold. The jewelry is made by them, by their hands, in their studios, with people they know + trust. It is easy to feel good about any piece purchased from them because you know it’s supporting their family, their passion, and the smaller end of a very large, often mass-produced overseas industry. We also believe in female owned companies as nearly all our jewelry is made by the hands of a woman.

what people are saying about gem..

"As my wife will attest, I have good taste in jewelry. With most shops I go into it doesn't take long to scan the displays to recognize that most of the jewelry is ok at best. This is a rare store that had intriguing items in every display throughout. Going back tomorrow."

-Cameron, Google Review

"The most beautiful jewelry and the friendliest staff. My go-to for unique finds, special occasions, and every day wares."

-Sarah, Facebook Review

"I absolutely love this place!! They have truly special pieces. I am so picky with jewelry and adore their carefully curated collection. They also have crystals. I love the uniqueness, quality, and beauty in what they offer. I know I’ll treasure the pieces I have for a long time from Gem."
