About us

Our Story

In the heart of Beirut, our journey began in 1969. A young, passionate Nabil Boghos started his career in the gleaming world of jewelry with his brothers. It wasn’t long before Nabil found his true calling within the facets and fires of precious gemstones. His keen eye recognized an untapped need in the market: jewelers were struggling to create high-end jewelry due to the unavailability of loose gemstones locally. That’s when Nabil decided to become a gemologist, carving a unique niche that would forever transform the industry.

He embarked on a worldwide journey, handpicking diamonds and colored stones to amass a collection like none other. He resolved the shortage that had long plagued local jewelers, empowering them to craft high-end pieces with less time and more convenience.

At Source of Gems, we understand that creating exquisite jewelry is not just about the final product. It’s about the story each gemstone carries, the passion behind each design, and the transformative journey from raw stone to finished masterpiece. We’ve made it our mission to simplify this process. We provide an unrivaled access to a wide variety of ethically sourced gemstones, ensuring your creations are both unique and responsibly made.

Honesty and credibility lie at the core of our ethos. Our commitment to these principles has built strong, enduring relationships with jewelers and clients alike, and has been our guiding light throughout our evolution.

In 2013, a new chapter began. Ralph, Nabil’s son, joined the business after completing his gemology studies at the Gemological Institute of America. Equipped with the same passion for gemstones and an unwavering commitment to our core values, Ralph has continued to uphold our legacy.
