Julie’s Gems is family owned and operated.
Our garnets are mined locally, and we have been mining garnets in rural Montana since 1990. They come from the sweet water drainage near the Ruby Mountains. Miners back in the 1900s found these precious stones and thought they were rubies that’s how the name Ruby Mountains came about. The garnets range from a beautiful burgundy wine to a brilliant bright red in color.
The sapphires are mined from the Phillipsburg and Helena areas. They come in almost every shade from a white diamond color to a prestigious blue and every color inbetween. They are also known for their variety of unique pastel colors.
Montana agates are a special stone found over a broad area of the great yellowstone river valley. These stone settings are one of a kind and not one stone will ever look like another. The most attractive feature is the colored inclusions, which make each one unique.
Because we mine and set our own gems, we are able to keep our prices very competitive.
