I love how personable this shop is! They kept me up to date with everything. Even sent me a personalized message and gift with my purchase! I will definitely be buying from them again!

Beautiful! I'm thrilled with this gemstone. The seller mailed it promptly, it did take a long time in transit in Israel which is no fault of the seller....but it's finally arrived and I'm so glad I purchased it.
The Gem Spot.
We have each been attached to stones from a young age - coming home with ours pockets filled with rocks, precious to us back then. When we first met, we connected through our love of stones - the banal, semi-precious, and precious.
Today we divide our time between traveling the world in search of these mini natural wonders and living on a little farm just outside of Jerusalem.
Throughout it all, Nadine is a jeweler, working with these semi-precious and precious gemstones alongside silver, gold, copper and brass. For any stone available in our shop, Nadine will be more than happy to work with you to create a necklace, ring, bracelet... whatever your heart desires. If you have an idea for a piece of jewelry or if you see a stone that intrigues you, please contact us and Nadine will work with you to come up with your unique piece! You are welcome to view her Etsy jewelry shop here: https://www.nadinessra.etsy.com
When not in search of gemstones, Gideon is currently working towards a Master's in Ecology, studying white widow spiders and their effect on the desert ecosystem.
