The first issue of Gems&Jewellery was launched exclusively for Gem-A members in 1991, offering a more accessible approach to the often complex field of gemmology. Gems&Jewellery presents a range of articles on gems, minerals and jewellery, alongside news, features and opinion pieces. Articles cover a broad range of topics, from synthetics, ethics and nomenclature to coverage of Gem-A field trips, events and international exhibitions. Thousands of gem and jewellery industry professionals, gemmology students, retailers and members of the National Association of Jewellers in the United Kingdom rely on Gems&Jewellery for insightful advice, entertaining features, beautiful imagery and accurate gemmological updates.
