The mission of Gem X is to seek the jewelry ‘x factor’
the magic of jewelry that comes from social experiences, storytelling and sharing.

Gem X is a private social club for jewelry enthusiasts. It was founded in New York City in 2017, and has expanded to become a global community of friends, mentors and supporters. Gem X began from a desire to learn and experience the stories behind the jewels. While working on their gemology degrees at GIA, Lin Jamison and Heidi Kreamer-Garnett followed their passion beyond the classroom. They found few events geared towards young connoisseurs, so they began planning their own jewelry adventures. 

Like many things, jewelry is better when experienced together.

Since then, Gem X has grown.  With a wide network ranging from designers, gemologists, art historians and collectors, our members have access to expert jewelry knowledge and behind-the-scene jewelry experiences.  Much of our content is curated by the Gem X Core, and some of our past events described here.  We look for members who show a genuine interest in learning more and a desire to share their jewelry perspectives with others.  To apply for membership, please fill out our application form. If you have a reference from a current member, please include it.

Our logo is an X through a gem: a symbol of jewelry being ‘better, together.’ It is a collection of smaller diamonds coming together to form a greater whole.
