Dan Lynch Gems is dedicated to providing ethically sourced and precision cut gems and gem rough to the market. 


Ethically Sourced
Whenever possible, rough gems are obtained directly from minors or dealers, with fair prices including all duties and taxes paid. We source gem rough overseas and through select contacts. We have been on annual buying trips to East Africa with the exception of this last fun year.  We hope to be back in the fall of 2021. By buying directly in country and paying fair prices, we are helping the community at the source.


Precision Cut
Our gems are cut by Dan Lynch and other select faceters who have been chosen due to their expertise. None of our gems are faceted in overseas cutting factories. The results are high quality cut gems with a high degree of polish. Precision cut gems are cut to provide the most beautiful gem possible.


Charitable Giving
A portion of all sales from Dan Lynch Gems goes to support children’s charities around the world. We have worked to  build a library at the Kitarini school for Masai children in Tanzania, contributed to adoption fundraisers, helped support an orphanage in Kenya, and also are supporters of GemLegacy.org.
