About
The Gem Museum is the first and foremost comprehensive gems and minerals museum in Singapore, open to the public. It is founded and set up in 2015 by Ms. Loke Huiying and co-founded by the director of Far East Gems and Jewellery, Mr. Tay Kunming. Ms. Loke is a certified trainer in gemmology and she has been training jewellery professionals and business owners since 2009. While Mr. Tay is a certified gemmologist, diamond trader and gem dealer. A husband and wife team, Kunming and Huiying work closely together to build a dream - a dream to spread their passion and knowledge on gemstones to many through building a company with global standards and creative platforms. The Gem Museum features a wide variety of gemstones and minerals from all corners of the world, educating visitors on the Mine to Market pipeline with regards to Value, Quality and Authenticity. It envisions being the international platform that bridge between the gemstone industry and the rest of the world.

    A place where you can learn all about gemstones from all around the world, meet people with common interests and ultimately gain more knowledge and confidence in your next purchase. Staff and boss are extremely friendly and knowledgeable! If a certain piece chases your eye, you may even be able to buy it from them. Enjoyed my visit to The Gem Museum, hope you will enjoy your own unique experience too 😉!
    Thank you for your review! happy that you enjoyed yourself! Take care and stay safe!

The staff was very friendly and informative as he guided my friends and I around the museum. It is small but not lacking in amazement and well thought through displays at all. My friends and I have learnt a lot through this fun and enriching experience and had the most pleasant time at the gem museum. We recommend all to go and admire the beautiful work of these gemologists!

This museum is part museum and part gem shop. The museum isn't that big, but covers the whole life cycle of gem formation through mining, cutting and polishing, and finally sale. The curator of the museum also does a guided tour and it's great at answering questions about gems, being a qualified gemologist, demonstrates commendable knowledge. There’s also some awesome gems on display or to buy in their gem shop upstairs. I also really enjoyed using a microscope to look up close at some of the gems which the curator was kind enough to demonstrate to me.

Was with my aunt who is on holiday and she was looking for a gem shop and found this museum. We were greeted by owner Kunming who is obliging, very accommodating and friendly and showed us a few gems and provided some interesting information. It’s a small but interesting museum and owner is knowledgeable and helpful. The friendliness and excellent service makes the whole experience commendable.
