Holy Gems jewelry collection launch features never-seen-before precious gems from Israel

December 2021


Holy Gems is creating a new narrative in jewelry history by bringing together extraordinary precious gemstones and refined artistry.

The collection of 101 one-of-a-kind pieces features extremely rare gemstones from Israel including blue and green sapphires, burgundy and red garnet, black spinel, and a new gem, carmel sapphire. The collection will be available for purchase starting today at

“The journey to the launch of Holy Gems has been one of focus, faith and determination.  The core of our brand is about jewelry that accentuates the beauty of the rare natural precious gems that were mined exclusively in an area that was supposed to be only earth.  We’ve taken these exceptional gems and created one-of-a-kind pieces that elevate not only precious materials, but a connection to the land where they came from and the astonishment that their existence evokes,” said Tali Shalem, CEO, of Shefa In Israel Ltd. the parent company of Holy Gems.

“By pioneering the discovery of these proprietary gemstones, the creation and journey of each piece is transparent and traceable at a level as rare as the gemstones themselves.  As the holder of the exclusive rights to mine and market Holy Land precious gems we are able to have full control over the creation of the collection from mining to the customer,” Shalem added.



The Holy Gems journey began in March 2020, when Shefa in Israel Ltd., the only gem mining company in Israel, received an official discovery certificate from the Supervisor of Mines in the State of Israel.

This established that an unprecedented deposit of precious gems was discovered at the alluvial Kishon Mine in northern Israel.

Only a small number of carats have been mined to date, including fewer than 100 carats of sapphire, approximately 200 carats of spinel, fewer than 200 carats of garnet and fewer than 200 carats of carmel sapphire, which is found only in Israel and which received the IMA: Mineral of the Year award in 2018.



The luxurious fine jewelry collection offers highly coveted designs created by Michaella Taub, an internationally recognized jewelry designer, who was inspired by biblical verses about the promised land.

All the gems undergo a delicate polishing process to reveal their beautiful natural properties.



Each Holy Gems piece is certified by a member of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisals, which is authorized by the EGL to issue international precious gems and jewelry grading.

The certification process is backed by independent geological and gemological reports, comprehensive university studies, and scientific evidence provided by the mining company.



Having an established presence in the diamond and luxury jewelry market for three generations in Israel, the Holy Gems parent company, Shefa In Israel Ltd. is known as a forward-thinking company with an innovative vision and extraordinary technical acumen.  The company and its associates are recognized for having established cutting-edge diamond and jewelry boutiques in New York, London, and Jerusalem and has parlayed its foothold in the luxury jewelry market into Holy Gems.
