Gems have captivated the attention of humans since the beginning of time. Their natural occurring beauty has intrigued many cultures from the earliest man and woman to the present. At Colonial Jewelers we LOVE gemstones… of all kinds! Imagine how amazing it is that Mother Nature has produced the most vibrant or delicate of colors that occur in gems around the world. Gems come in all spectrums of the rainbow and will continue to be a source of wonder and passion through the ages.
