Our History


Established in 1960, Joseph Gad is the second generation of a family business focused on the finest Colombian Emeralds and has since become the global premier source for extraordinary and rare precious stones and diamonds. In 1968, the Gad Family became the Exclusive Partner of Muzo Mine in Bogata, Columbia. In 1975, The Gad Family was instrumental in the legalization of the exportation of Emeralds from Colombia to the United States. Since 1986, Joseph Gad has been considered by the gem trade the leading authority when it comes to single stones, matched pairs and layouts.

Joseph Gad is a name that is synonymous with the finest precious stones. As a well established, industry-acknowledged leader in the colored stone market, Joseph Gad is a recognized name among the largest and well known jewelry brands as the quintessential expert on all things when it comes to Emeralds, Rubies and Sapphires. With over 50 years of experience in the industry, Joseph Gad is a global leader within the gem trade and will continue to grow his legacy for many years to come.

Our business is fueled by our commitment to provide clients with emeralds that suit their market.  Matched sets are of particular interest to many of our customers; hand-designed layouts are readily available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and cutting styles.  Rough material is also for sale - in lots or in single pieces.

We are strong buyers of estate emeralds, precious stones, and jewelry.  If you have a fine emerald or vintage jewel for sale, we welcome the opportunity to offer on your item.  Please call for more information.
