Launched in 2018, Gem Keepers is a brand new online gem store created by the people behind StarRuby.in – the pioneers in bringing gemstones to the online world.
Harshil Zaveri, the founder of StarRuby.in, was always fascinated by the beauty, rarity and exquisiteness of natural gemstones. Coming from a family of jewelers, the love for gems was in his blood.
In the early 2000s, buying diamonds and jewelry online was the latest fad throughout the world. However, no single company in the world specialized in selling rubies, sapphires, emeralds and other gemstones through the internet. For the average gem buyer, access to gemstones was restricted to local brick-and-mortar jewelry stores - most of which had very limited knowledge about fine gemstones and charged huge premiums for sourcing them.
The desire to create something new, combined with his passion for gemstones, led Harshil to come up with the idea of StarRuby.in - the world’s first full-fledged online store selling gemstones and gemstones only.
Between then and now, StarRuby.in has grown to become one of the most reputed gem companies in the world - selling on multiple e-commerce platforms such as eBay, Amazon, Etsy and Catawiki apart from their own online store.
To keep up with the times and with the changing e-commerce landscape, the team behind StarRuby.in has come up with GemKeepers.com – an exclusive online gem store with a unique collection of fine gemstones, the latest online shopping functionalities and a simplified checkout system.
StarRuby.in & Gem Keepers set themselves apart by offering an unmatched collection of natural & unheated / untreated gemstones at wholesale prices - all certified by international gem-labs like GIA, GRS & IGI.
GemKeepers.com is the online property of StarRuby.in Pvt. Ltd., based in Mumbai, India.
Helping India retain its position as the “Gem Capital of the World”

Taking professional looking photographs of gemstones is an incredibly difficult and daunting task.
