Why GemsNY ?
Shop with confidence
We are recognized for quality, price, and service - but don't take it from us, see what people like you have to say about GemsNY
We've earned high marks from our customers, not just for the quality and price of our products, but for the service they didn't expect. That's because we
take the view that we aren't an anonymous online retailer; we are your personal jeweler. The #1 quality people look for in highly considered purchases is
trust - that's why we make integrity our #1 product, offering no-hassle 30-day returns and a lifetime warranty on our jewelry . And above all we welcome feedback - it maintains our high standards and helps new customers learn what they can expect and why they can trust us with
their special occasions.

We recognize that purchasing expensive gemstones and jewelry online can be nerve-racking - but it doesn't have to be. Our mission is to provide you with
what you are looking for - but in the case that you aren't satisfied, you shouldn't bear any cost. That's why we provide:
The best selection of color gemstones in the market
50,000+ color gemstones are currently on display on our site in a single, easy-to-browse location. And, unlike other websites or jewelers, we own that
entire inventory. No jeweler can boast the same, online or off.
And note, that's what's on our site, our actual inventory is even deeper (it's hard to put everything up!) so if you don't see what you are looking for
online, please Email Us - it's extremely rare that we don't have what a client wants.
Made-to-order jewelry you can customize
All of our jewelry is handcrafted from scratch only after you place your order
We can't accept that customers should have take it or leave it options when it comes to luxury items. That's why we give you the ability to select the
perfect gemstone and set it in the setting that speaks to you - we call this our "Make Your Own" option because there are no compromises when it comes to
the perfect ring, pendant, earrings, or bracelet. Even with our vast collection of settings, we offer you the option to further customize it if you see any
detail you'd like to change. You can send us a photo of a design or even a sketch through our Custom Jewelry process and our custom design team will work to bring it to life.
We stand behind our products
We only sell certified gemstones - no exceptions
All of our natural diamonds and lab created diamonds are certified by prestigious labs such as GIA and IGI.
All of our color gems are 100% natural - we do not carry lab-created or synthetic color gemstones (i.e. Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald, etc.). As such, all of our gemstones are accompanied with a certificate of authenticity so you know you are getting exactly what you expect. In addition to our own certificates, most of our inventory is certified by distinguished, independent color gemstone laboratories such as GIA and/or AGL - these laboratories tests each gemstone thoroughly and then create a customized grading report with the results. All certificates are viewable right here on our site.
All of our jewelry comes with a free appraisal
All our jewelry products come with free detailed appraisals. These are especially important in the jewelry buying process for insurance purposes. Rest
assured our appraisals exceed the standards required by all major jewelry insurance companies.
Lifetime Manufacturing Warranty on Jewelry
We back the quality and workmanship of our jewelry. If any defects in quality or workmanship, except for normal wear and tear, come to light in your purchase, we will repair your jewelry item free of charge (Fill out repair request form). Please note, this warranty is void if there is any work done on the jewelry piece by a third-party (e.g. resizing, cleaning, etc.). Please note the warranty does not cover lost or damaged gemstones. We recommend insuring your jewelry items for further protection.
Nobody plans to lose or damage a piece of jewelry, but it happens.
Thanks to Lavalier, we're able to offer you insurance at an affordable price
with fast, easy online quotes and application. Check out this link for more
information and a free quote!
All of our natural and lab created diamonds are laser inscribed by the respective grading laboratories (GIA or IGI) with the report number of the diamond.
It is uncommon for color gemstones to have laser inscriptions. For your peace of mind, we provide the complimentary option for you to add a laser inscription for each color gemstone priced at $5,000 or more. This inscription works as a unique identifier. If your color gemstone ever leaves your possession (e.g. cleaning or resizing) you can easily confirm your gemstone hasn't been switched. It's an unfortunate fact that this is necessary - we know because we've had customers thank us for inscribing their stone after some unfortunate incidents with jewelers pulling the switcheroo.
There is a $35 fee to inscribe color gemstones under $5,000. Please note, this fee covers the cost of laser inscribing the unique identifier onto the girdle of the gemstone, but does not cover the cost of updating any certificate with the laser inscribed unique identifier. If you would like the certificate to be updated, it carries an additional charge of $100 (total of $135). Please note, adding a unique identifier is currently only available for GIA certificates. The laser inscription process requires up to 5 business days and if applicable, GIA requires an additional 10-30 business days to update their certificate (they do this themselves once the inscription is set and they have the stone in hand to re-evaluate it).
Please note, we aren't looking to up-sell laser inscriptions. We'd love to offer laser inscription on all gemstones, but it carries a cost that would be relatively significant below the $5,000 threshold. Instead, we decided to keep our prices low and let the customer elect whether they want this option.
