Hello my name is Jessica and welcome to The Gem Boutique! We are an online gemstone & jewelry supply company based out of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
This business started out in the heart of downtown Kitchener in 2011 as a jewelry supply store. I started out at the young age of 21 to build a business that would offer a wide variety of jewelry supplies and gemstone beads.
As the business continued to grow over the years, I wanted to expand into the crystal industry and be able to offer affordable gems from all over the world! In 2020 I had an idea to begin focusing on our online side of things.
With all of the opportunities using social media to reach out to people who love gems as much as I do, I wanted to be able to offer crystals to as many people as possible! That is when I decided it was time to dive into the world of Instagram & begin offering live sales!
Shortly after, we announced our move to a new warehouse to help us expand even more on our beads and gemstones and it has been an amazing ride! We now have a wonderful team of 15 amazing staff members who are just as excited about gems as I am!
We are striving for great quality crystals and beading supplies at very affordable prices and we wouldn't want to sell something that we wouldn't buy ourselves!
Our love is for gemstone beads & crystals and finding new beautiful collections that are hard to get. I hope that you've found our shop and I hope you enjoy getting to know all of us and have fun growing your collections! -Jessica
