Who we are
In Sherwood Park since 1984
Gem Gallerie was established in 1984, and now long-time owner Karen Simmons is pursuing other ventures. But, not to worry, loyal Gem Gallerie customers!
The shop has been bought by Jacqueline St-Amand and will continue as a family-run business right here in Sherwood Park.
Jacqueline is familiar to customers, having joined Gem Gallerie in 2016. She is a GIA-Certified Graduate Gemologist, a Registered Master Valuer Appraiser, and a jewelry designer.
Jacqueline is passionate about all aspects of jewelry, and understands it’s personal.
“People have different tastes when it comes to jewelry,” says Jacqueline. “Our aim is to help them choose pieces that reflect their personality and are suitable to the occasion – whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or it’s just ‘me’ day,” she says with a smile.
“We see younger customers, for example, who are quite happy to find unique pieces that really speak to them,” says Jacqueline. “We carry a range of lines at various price points so there really is something for everyone.”
When you stop in to see Jacqueline, be sure to say hello to her latest staff addition, a husky named Safire. “She’s our D.O.G. – Director of Greetings.”
Jacqueline says she’s grateful to Karen for the smooth transition and the guidance she has provided. “We intend to maintain the high-quality standards and customer service excellence that people have come to know.”
Look for new products coming soon.
Custom Jewellery Designs
Many times a client will bring in their old gold and we can either buy gold or make a new piece with it. Existing gems can be used and added. There’s nothing prettier than a new white gold ring laced with diamonds, rubies, sapphires or emeralds and any combination imaginable with hundreds of stone types to choose from. Imagine making a family ring or pendant with all of the children’s birthstones for mom or grandma or even dad. Imagination is the beginning of every jewelry inquiry so leave the creation to us.
