The Jewelry Republic is a Veteran-owned & operated company that comes to you courtesy of Greg & Emma, a husband & wife team committed to serving those who currently serve, have served, and the people who support them. With their experience in the luxury goods industry, they offer thoughtfully crafted fine jewelry using the best raw materials and production methods in modern, wearable designs.
Greg & Emma have been together since Greg was a boot Lance Corporal and have been traveling the World ever since. Greg has 11 years of service in the USMC including deployments to Iraq, Asia and East Africa. Greg separated as a Staff Sergeant and these days spends time cultivating a sweet ginger beard and keeping our production team focused on the mission at hand. Greg is also a trained Diamond Graduate (GIA) with an eye for detail. Emma is Irish born & bred and is our gemstone expert. She is a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America and a self-identified magpie. She manages our design team and brings us the best precious stones the gem markets have to offer.
We've seen what everyone else has to offer and are not impressed. We believe our community is underserved in the luxury goods arena and we're here to resolve this. We're experts in our field with a combined 30 years of experience working with red carpet designers and brands, diamonds and gemstones. From the Diamond Bourses of Antwerp, Belgium to the manufacturing hubs of Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam, we know quality when we see it and we know that's NOT what is currently on offer to our Brothers and Sisters who serve. Our mission is to change that and provide those who serve their country, & the people who support them, with the jewelry we deserve. 18k gold, diamond and gemstone jewelry hand crafted by artisans. No compromise. We've earned it.
