Our Gem Geek® Brand

Gem Geek®
Introducing Jimmy and Stella – our first two Gem Geek® designs!

Our collection of Gem Geek® clothing and drinkware was developed with gemstone, crystal, and fossil lovers in mind. We are always creating new designs and will continue to add new products to our store, so be sure to check back with us often.

I first used the term “gem geek” when I was working on air as a home shopping host back in 2007 or 2008. I remember my co-host saying that he was a “GG” and that the letters stood for “graduate gemologist.” I responded to him by saying, “Oh, I thought they stood for “gem geek.” Little did I know, those two words would now be used by so many people to describe their love of gemstones.

A popular TV comedy show started airing in 2007 and ran for 12 seasons. The main characters were a group of quirky, socially awkward young scientists. I always loved the geeky t-shirts that they wore on the show. In January of 2016, I was watching the latest episode and thought to myself, “gemology is a science, and I’m just as ‘geeky’ as they are when it comes to gemstones. Why not design some gemology related t-shirts for me?”  So, I started sketching some basic designs as they came to me and hired an artist to help me refine them. Once the artwork was finalized, I found a supplier who could print them on shirts and ordered a few samples. Our first two designs were our star characters, Jimmy, and Stella. They are fixtures in our Gem Geek® line of products, and we hope you love them as much as we do!
