The magic of
“Who has not been drawn to the magic and beauty of precious stones? For centuries, people have been excited and enchanted by their sparkle and brilliance, the depth of their colours, the dazzle of their facets and faces, their natural beauty and intrinsic value.”

At the House of Gübelin, we have been examining, designing and crafting coloured gemstones for almost a century. Rubies, sapphires and emeralds are our specialities. We serve an exclusive clientele who share our passion for gems, timeless perfection and outstanding craftsmanship.

Each gem harbours a mysterious world hidden deep within. This complexity adds a fascinating dimension to the gem's external beauty. Welcome to the world of inclusions. Beholding the elegance of an exquisite emerald, ruby or sapphire is one of nature's great aesthetic pleasures. To delve into the hidden realm beneath its surface and witness galaxies of colours, shapes and breath-taking patterns is to experience the wonders of the Earth as never before. Unlike diamonds, the remarkable inclusions inside coloured gemstones are a vital component of their origin.
Inclusions are characteristic traits that tell the stories behind the gemstone. These distinctive markers make each gem unique and allow us to trace their personal history throughout the past millennia. They tell us which minerals and elements were present during the formation of the stones and provide valuable information about their surrounding environment. Breathtakingly beautiful, inclusions serve as a source of endless inspiration. Our experts will help you discover the hidden complexities within your favourite Gübelin gems. Our expertise and superior stones will allow you to see beauty in a whole new light.
Under the microscope, your chosen gemstone will reveal a wealth of fascinating forms, shapes and colours. Inspired by the inner world our designers will present you with a series of proposals, each guaranteed to present the cut of your gem in the best possible light. We highly value your input at this stage and invite you to select your favourite sketch.

Your Bespoke jewellery will be brought to life in our atelier in Switzerland, from the initial idea to the design, prototype and finished piece.

A final examination is conducted using a microscope to ensure no stone is left unturned. This assiduous attention to detail and our stringent quality standards are evident in every piece of Gübelin jewellery.
