Welcome to the Himalayan Gems and Jewelry. I established the company on August 20, 2016 in San Diego, California focusing on wholesale of gemstones originating from my home country, Afghanistan. My main objective is to market the Afghan gemstones worldwide and help the people of this country to get educated in this industry, resulting in a more stable country and stronger economy. We are offering exclusive rare Rubies from Jegdelak, Emeralds from Panjshir Valley, and finest spinel from Badakhshan (Balas rubies). Sapphires from North of Afghanistan will be in our inventory soon as the new sources are emerging.
I believe it is important to know where and how your gems are sourced. This becomes increasingly important in today’s world where conflict is widespread and gems are stolen or otherwise illegally obtained. Furthermore, there is no industry-wide standard to determine where the gem has really come from, how it was obtained, or who has handled your gem. Most companies or jewelers will, at best, be able to state the country of origin. At Himalayan Gems and Jewelry we mine or buy the rough from the artisanal miners and export them legally out of the country of origin, and facet them by our professional cutters to high standards emphasizing the beauty of each gem. Hence, we connect cultures and create forever-lasting friendships with our vertical integrated business system.
