Established in 1994, The Gem Gallery was founded around Don Baide’s passion for high quality gemstones and unique custom designs. Early on, Don’s love for handmade jewelry and his distinctive artistic style quickly outgrew his original home workshop. He soon opened a store in Downtown Bozeman and brought in additional goldsmiths to keep up with his growing clientele. Since then, Don’s son Jason has joined The Gem Gallery team.
Growing up watching the goldsmiths busy at work, Jason developed the same passion for jewelry design and fine gems as his father. Establishing himself early in his career, Jason is passionate about continuing The Gem Gallery’s commitment to craftsmanship, quality, and an exceptional custom experience.
“The staff at Gem Gallery at second to none! Their knowledge, creativity and and customer service are fantastic!! I will always use Gem Gallery as my jeweler of choice!! My custom ring turned out beautifully! They kept me updated throughout the entire process and allowed me to order the setting I had found own my own and worked to customize it with the manufacturer! 5 stars from me!”
“Jillian helped us out on the floor for about an hour to find the perfect stone and ring combination. She was patient and responsive to our feedback with each selection, and went above and beyond to cater our requests. I could not have asked for a better experience for this being our first time looking for rings. Thank you Jillian!”
“I was designing a custom ring while living in Germany (my wife is from Montana) and Katie was incredibly helpful. The Gem Gallery was the only jeweler in Montana that would let me pick out the specific materials I wanted, and they were also able to provide great feedback along the way. After sending a few inspiration photographs to explain different elements I wanted, they built a custom setting that was a huge hit! I would definitely recommend them.”
