About Us

We are a UK based business specializing in natural gemstone jewellery, second hand vintage pieces and loose gemstones of all varieties. We supply gemstones and jewellery to all levels of the market: retail shops, bench jewellers and other gemstone dealers. All the way down to collectors, individuals and those just looking for a gemstone for a bespoke piece.

Ethically sourced gemstones

All our gemstones and jewellery are sourced and manufactured with ethical principles in mind. We only used trusted suppliers who operate under strict standards.

Our gemstones are sourced and tested by a graduate gemmologist and fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain. Some are also accompanied by independent gemmological lab reports, most often internationally recognised labs such as GIA or IGI. We are also a member of the National Assocation of Jewellers (NAJ).

Our stock of fine jewellery is either manufactured here in the UK by fine craftsman using stat of the art techniques or purchased second hand from trusted auctioneers and dealers around the globe.

How we photograph our items

For gemstones we take 1 photograph in a gem light-box (using artificial light) and the rest in natural daylight (near a large window). For jewellery we take our photos with a 'daylight equivalent' bulb (to show the true colour and contrast of the metal and stones). We do not edit or photoshop photos and endeavor to take the most 'real life' photos possible. In fact, most of our pieces look even better in person.

Videos can be made on request.

Ordering, payments and stock

We accept payment through Paypal, all major credit/debit cards, bank transfer (including wise) and bitcoin. We also offer layaway payment plans, subject to agreement, so please email us with any inquiries.

We have excellent contacts in the industry so if you can't find something you're looking for please let us know at info@gemsandjewelsuk.com

Our stock is stored offsite in safe deposit vaults and in the windows of our jewellery partners around the UK so there may sometimes be slight delays in dispatch. Although we have never had any issues.

All orders are sent safely wrapped and packaged, fully insured and tracked.
