If you love colored gems, you will love our store!  We travel the world 3 times a year buying gems from the miners and cutters in Sri Lanka, Brazil, Thailand and Asia.  We were spending so much time in Sri Lanka that we actually built a second home there.  The town is called “Ratnapura” which means “City of Gems”.  There are sapphire mines literally within 100 yards of our home. (click here to learn more about the Johnson's travels in Sri Lanka)

We have a vast selection of Ceylon Sapphires in blue, pink and golden colors.  We stock many rare varieties of gems, including genuine alexandrite, tanzanites and tsavorite (green garnet).  We specialize in bi-color and watermelon tourmaline as well as all the traditional gemstones.
