We founded Heritage Gems & Jewels with one goal in mind: providing a high-quality, smart, and reliable Online Gems and Jewelry Store. Through our connections and expertise that we’ve built throughout the years, we are able to provide unparalleled quality and service in sourcing precious and semi-precious gemstones and jewelry. We are located in the historical Los Angeles Downtown Jewelry District.

Most of our gemstones are sourced from East Africa and in particular Tanzania. We buy rough stones and use our gemstone cutting facility to process the rough products. This allows for us to maximize the brilliance of the gemstones bring out their nicest colors. Among the many gemstones we carry, we specialize in tanzanite, sapphire, padparadscha sapphire, ruby, spinel, alexandrite and tsavorite.

Our resident Gemologist is certified by the American Gem Society and the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). 

Our passion for excellence has driven us from the beginning, and continues to drive us into the future. We know that every product counts, and strive to make the entire shopping experience as rewarding as possible. Check it out for yourself!
