The St. Louis Guild Presents

Gem Legacy: Holistic Sourcing and the People Behind Colored Gemstones
with Rachel Dery, RS


Rachel Dery, RSJoin Rachel Dery, Director of Communication and Education for Roger Dery Gem Design, as she discusses the goal of Gem Legacy: to cast a vision of giving back that the entire gem and jewelry industry can support and use as a vehicle for transformation in their business.

Rachel facets gemstones for the Roger Dery Collection and shares the story of Roger’s holistically sourced, precision faceted gemstones that give back to those most in need at the source. By investing in holistic (mind, body, and soul) sourcing, the jewelry industry can support those who make colored stones possible, create a Gem Legacy, and share with clients stories of the exponential GOOD that gemstones are doing around the world. Gem Legacy is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting education, vocational training, and local economies in East African mining communities.
