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 an invitation-only jewelry social club.  It was founded in New York City in 2017, with its newest chapter in London. Gem X began from a desire to transform jewelry into social experiences for a new generation of enthusiasts. 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 to host regular gatherings, curated by the Gem X Core.  You can read about some of our past events here. Gem X includes designers, gemologists, art historians and collectors – all with a vetted interest in jewels and gems.  To apply for membership to Gem X, please fill out our application form. If you have a reference from a current member, please include it.

To collaborate on an event, please contact us.  Thank you.

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.
