About Us

By Design Gems is a newly formed family business based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which provides services such as gem cutting in their onsite lapidary workshop and custom jewelry design in their studio that houses a 3D printer. Their retail showroom, workshop, and studio are located in the center of the charming Old Historic District of Colorado Springs.

Many might not be aware that Colorado’s “backyard” is home to a rich supply of beautiful stones, and By Design Gems works with local miners to bring those treasures to their customers. In addition, By Design Gems strives to bring their customers some of the finest gemstones, rough material, and minerals from around the world. Their current inventory has products from countries like Colombia, Brazil, Zambia, Canada, Mexico, Vietnam, and Australia, and they have plans to expand to many other areas.

By Design Gems also consigns with many artists to bring their unique pieces and ideas to the public. A majority of their artists are from Colorado, but they have others from Texas, California, and even South America. And they are always looking for new talent. Their mission is to offer unique and genuine products and create custom pieces their customers have always desired.
