We've been offering this unique gemstone mix for over 15 years. Our signature Blue Ribbon Gem Mix was developed by a group of our long-time customers who were entering a jewelry design competition, all focused on winning that first place "Blue Ribbon" prize. What they lacked was a sense of spontaneous creativity. Each jewelry designer asked us to mail them a random assortment of loose gemstones in different kinds, shapes, and colors, in hopes to inspire an amazing creation based on their budget and carat size order. Needless to say, it was a huge hit! They won their "Blue Ribbon," and this unique gem mix was born.

Maybe you need a lot of gemstones for your next project or perhaps just a few. We let you decide, by giving you the opportunity to order only the quantity of gemstones that fit your budget all at only $7.95 per carat! Whether you order a quantity of "1" carat or "100" carats total weight (ctw) of randomly mixed gemstones, you're sure to enjoy the selection you'll receive. Individual gems sizes can range from 1mm - 20mm (0.02crts - 20crts). Obviously, the number, variety and size of the gems will depend on how much or how little you order. Due to the special price point of this gem mix, the individual gemstones are not labeled and unfortunately, we can not honor requests for certain types of gems to be included in your mix. They are all random.

All of the gemstones will be randomly poured for your order. There are NO lab created, synthetic, glass or CZ gems in this mix. All gemstones are genuine and natural earth mined. The gems can have a wide range of variety of precious and semiprecious, from Aquamarine to Zircon, to the common and exotic, or just about anything in between. They will be a mix of faceted and cabochon shapes that can range from traditional cuts (rounds, square, emerald cut, oval) to even some fancy cuts, that are bench ready to set in your jewelry (but gem collectors love them, too!) The variety in the mix is always changing, as we are continually adding new varieties of gems each week!

Yes, you heard right...every order, whether it be a quantity of "1" or "100" carats, will contain free faceted diamond(s) and natural river gold (fresh from the streams of the west coast). There will be approximately 0.01 carats of mixed color diamonds, per carat, based on your original order (order 50 ctw, you'll get about a 1/2 ctw in mixed diamonds free..etc.).

Lovely collection of gems, but was a bit surprised to find one that was not complete in its cut. Still, its something a prong can easily hide. Will be shopping here again
