Learn More About The Transformation

Roger and Ginger Dery have been sharing their love for color and precious gemstones with the world since 1981, nearly 40 years. Roger is an award-winning precision faceter and is passionate about holistic sourcing, education, and giving back to mining communities. Together, they believe in the power of sharing the story behind the gems and leaving a legacy at the source of every gemstone. Every gemstone is in Roger’s hands, from Discovery to Destination.

Gems with a Purpose

Roger’s focus is dedicated to East Africa, working with miners to secure singularly beautiful colored gems and holistically impact their communities. When Roger chooses to work with a mining area, he is making a long-term commitment to invest in the miners, their families, and their futures. He seeks to meet them where they are, often providing for basic needs: food, water, and cooking oil. His charitable efforts in East Africa are funded by our partner organization, Gem Legacy.
