Gembridge Customers Co-Create Jewelry With Some of the World’s Best Designers

“Co-creating jewelry with people, and helping them tell stories, is a journey we all take together.”




(PRESS RELEASE) Customers of digital gemstone marketplace Gembridge can now design jewelry directly with a diverse range of world-class designers and artisans around the world, from New York to Geneva, Beirut to Bangkok.

Vatche Aghjayan, the New York-based designer and one of America’s top jewelers, has created a statement ring with a Gembridge customer in Asia.

“The Gembridge team found us a stunning pastel pink stone in New York, then got Vatche, one of 5th Avenue’s top designers, to work with us,” said Matt Cullen, who commissioned the ring from Singapore. “The experience was great, seamless and lots of fun. And, needless to say, we love the result!”

Gembridge has completed other pieces of bespoke jewelry, ranging in price from US$1,500 to US$35,000, with designers in New York for a Malaysian customer, in Beirut for an Australian customer and in Bangkok for an English customer. The Gembridge community also features bespoke designers in Geneva and London.

Creating a one-of-a-kind, deeply personal piece with Gembridge starts with a call hosted by Jean Jureidini, Gembridge’s Master Jeweler.

“The personal touch is what makes us unique in the online world,” says Jean. “Co-creating jewelry with people, and helping them tell stories, is a journey we all take together.”


Customers explore Gembridge’s global catalogue and curated collections to find their Perfect Stone. For something extra special, a request is sent to Gembridge’s global experts to source.

Nick Marrett, Gembridge CEO, said: “Our customers can now co-create directly with the talented professionals who design for the luxury jewelry houses. Today, we deliver an experience that money can’t usually buy.”

Each is appraised and catalogued by experts, and can be brought to life by jewelry designers around the world. Customers can now find their Perfect Stone loose, in jewelry, or create bespoke settings. Customers buy direct from the trade at the best prices.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
