responsibly sourced stones + materials
We only work with designers who are conscientious of more than just diamond sourcing (please ask us more), but also about the impact on the environment and on the families they are supporting. Our designers use ethically sourced stones, many times even recycled diamonds and almost all of them use recycled gold. The rings are made by them, by their hands, in their studios, with people they know + trust. It is easy to feel good about a ring 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 bridal 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."

"Such a special boutique! Its name signifies the beautiful baubles as well as what the store represents. Laura and her team are lovely and trendsetters for all that is fabulous!! The pieces are timeless and beckon compliments immediately and I especially love that they never need to be taken off."
