Gem Kingdom started its activities in 1990 and has her home in Amsterdam. Johanna Titselaar (born in 1962, originally a painter) and Bernard Jongstra (1960, originally a musician) had in 1990 a jewelery collection in which non-everyday materials would go hand in hand with an original style. Sterling silver, semi-precious stones, mother-of-pearl, porcelain, wood, acrylic, cameos, engraved Swarovski crystal and polyester, brought together in designs that radiate individuality.
Gem Kingdom is still growing and developing, each collection reflects in a natural way the contemporary collective consciousness. Every design embodies contrasts: the primal form versus elegance, the ethnic next to the ultramodern, the historical in harmony with the futuristic. All these items result in a jewelery collection with a very personal appearance.
Gem Kingdom jewelry is made by hand with care and attention to detail. We always use the very best materials. The collection consists of both women’s and men’s collections, unique silver artifacts, in-house accessories, couture collections and collector’s items. The stones, the engraved silver objects and all other objects are exclusive Gem Kingdom designs. Gem Kingdom is known for its highly recognizable style and unique ability to combine various materials with sterling silver to achieve a perfect combination in every individual jewel.
