Our Story

Welcome to Serendipity Gems set up in 2005 in the wake of the Asian Tsunami.

Our aim through the sale of Serendipity jewellery is threefold: to support the most needy communities in Sri Lanka, to support jewellery artisans whose skills have been passed down from generation to generation and to make available the vibrant gems for which Sri Lanka is world famous at truly affordable prices.

Every piece is hand made with special attention given to the quality of gemstone used. The majority of our jewellery consists of one off pieces, so when it's gone it's gone! 

With funds raised form the sale of the Serendipity jewellery we have to date provided fishing vessels to those who lost theirs in the Tsunami, provided books and other school equipment for pre-school children, paid for poor communities to go on pilgrimage to a very sacred area in Sri Lanka called Katharagama and most recently contributed funds for food relif in ares hit by severe flooding. Helping less fortunate communities is an ongoing commitment of Serendipity Gems.
