We partner with mining associations, gem cutters, women artisanal gold miners and jewelers in Malawi and Zambia. Mine to market, person to person.
Where your gemstone comes from, matters.
And it’s not just about geography it’s about community. It’s important to verify the source of your gemstones, because when you purchase a gem, you become linked to a gemstone mining community.
Premiums on gems enable projects in the countries where the gems originate. These projects are determined by direction of country coordinators, and have included food drives and market training.
Food Drives and Face Masks
According to the The United Nations World Food Program that as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic, the number of people facing food crisis could double — to 260 million worldwide. Virtu Gem was founded to help those in our jewelry supply chain.
