During this period, he discovered his passion for colour gemstones, and founded Gem World. In 2010, Jehuda passed away and his son Guy Gorenstein took over the company.

Our Ethical Vision
When it comes to gemstones, the supply chains are often complex. The mining process, cutting and selling of gemstones usually take place in various countries.
At this point, there is no presence of established bodies tracking the origin from mine to market.
However, our years of valuable experience coupled with a profound market knowledge has led to a transparent, and compact supply chain which we are proud of.
We, at Gemstone, carefully monitor the origin of our gemstones. We strongly care for our environment, sustainable employment conditions, and strive to ensure you with fairness, traceability and transparency as it relates to your product requirements- which is our mission.
We envision providing our customers with a high quality, personal and professional service, at all times.
