I re...commend Baraka Gems to all, who are looking for that special GEM.
Best if all, they are located in Ballard.
George Smith was Jamie Jockwig's mentor. (both pictured)
George, the owner of Phil's Jewelry in Ballard, is a big part of why Baraka exists today. The two men met through a mutual connection at the time when Jamie was developing his strategy to help orphans in Kenya in 2009.
Another beautiful gem from the Tucson Gem Show hanging out in our Baraka Studio waiting for a new home!

I’m back from Tucson, but fully loaded with some gorgeous stones you’ll see in the days weeks ahead. Before I wrap up my trip to the Gem Show, I wanted to highlight one more dealer.
This is Lisa. She runs Sapphires of Montana. They are an arm of Columbia Gem House, and sell some of the most gorgeous ethically sourced Montana Sapphire on the market. Look at the amazing cut on the bright canary yellow sapphire in the pics. If you are interested in any of these stones, or other Montana Sapphire, please get in touch. We’ve got access to some of the most gorgeous stones in the country!
Jamie coming to you from Tucson again. Just a few days left for me here at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show.
This will be my last video with one of our favorite gemstone dealers. This is Bruce Bridges. His father founded and his family mines the world renowned Tsavorite in Kenya. I had the privilege of visiting their camp and the mines in 2016. In the comment section you’ll see some pics of my trip and some of a ring we set a gorgeous piece of Tsavorite in. I hope to someday bring some clients with me to see the mines, and experience all the wonders of Kenya.
We showcase a number of pieces of this gorgeous green Tsavorite in our studio. Get in contact if you’re interested!

Hey everybody. I hope you’re all doing well. Just wanted to let you know that I won’t be going live today. My voice ran off someplace last night. I’m hoping by tomorrow that it will be back in action so I can interview two more dealers we love working with. Until then, here’s a view of the Tucson sunset from last night, and one of my favorite museum quality mineral specimens. Yes, that is a perfectly terminated natural aquamarine crystal in the center of the piece! Hope to broadcast again tomorrow. - Jamie
