Our live Gemstone Roundtables offer our customers a memorable and magical buying experience. It gives you the opportunity to select gemstones suited to your unique personality. Our live Gemstone Roundtables allow you to become part of the process of designing a custom piece of jewelry that embodies your particular tastes and style.

During our live Gemstone Roundtables, guests will enjoy food, camaraderie, and access to the finest and most beautiful gemstones. Passing around folded stone papers containing loose gems or beads, our guests will be able to see and handle with each gem. If a particular gemstone speaks to you, you can call “dibs” on it.

After a stone has made its way around the table, if you called first “dibs,” it will be placed on your special pallet. By filling your pallet with stones, you can see what cuts and colors speak to your personality.

With the widest array of fine gemstones in Greenville, SC, this is truly an experience for gem lovers.
