Our Origins

We started this adventure in 2009. We would bring our oldest son down to the local river to go gold mining when he was only a few months old. Then we added metal detecting into our repertoire, followed by wire wrapping. It all kind of spiraled from there! As our family grew, so did our business and passion for all things rock related. We really started taking the online selling aspect seriously about 5 years ago. We started our online business by doing scheduled Facebook shows in various mineral groups. We built a reputation for being reliable, and honest sellers among the online rock community.

Since we started, we have been working tirelessly in order to expand our product offerings and make our customers experience even better. We’re proud of how far we’ve come, yet remain committed to performing even better. The pieces featured are hand picked by us, so we can ensure the quality of items we send out. Browse through our product gallery and experience shopping with R&D Gems for yourself. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions, comments or suggestions. We can be reached at, or through our Facebook group. In the future we are also planning on hosting "Pop-Up Gem Shows", so depending on interest in your area, we may come to YOU *depending on location*. We also have a group on Facebook with new pieces posted almost daily! You can find it here: or by clicking the Facebook icon at the bottom of the website
