We are Backroom Gems, an independent gem distributor that has been in the business for over a decade. We started by supplying gems to stores and auction houses and are now presenting our inventory directly to our customers via our website at affordable prices. We offer a wide selection of gem types and grades to fit every budget. Our motto is "Gems for Everyone" and we mean it.

    We, ourselves, are gem enthusiasts and have just as much love for our stones as our customers. Whether you are a crafter, collector or just buying for yourself, we hope you will find all of your gemological treasures in our backroom.

    Located in America's Heartland, we are a veteran-owned and operated business.
