Armando Ferreira has made a name for himself ever since he opened the doors in 2020, when he turned his passion for gemstones and rare metals into a thriving business. He maintained the mindset of promoting Malawi and helping those that are at the forefront of the supply chain, focusing on responsible, artisanal mining and value addition by giving Malawian artisans the opportunity to cut and polish gemstones from our motherland, Malawi, the warm heart of Africa.

Today there is no better place to buy or sell precious stones or metals, or to get an unbiased and honest appraisal. 

Now with his wife Imaan by his side, the couple have taken their company from strength to strength and have expanded into "The Gem and The Jeweller", a new company who's focus is handmade jewellery.

At The Gem and The Jeweller, we are passionate about creating unique and exquisite handcrafted jewellery. Our pieces are made with pure silver and gold, and we specialize in natural coloured gemstones sourced locally in Blantyre, Malawi. Our team of skilled craftsmen offer a range of services including polishing, cleaning and repairs. We take pride in our work and aim to provide the highest quality of service to our customers.

Our story began with a love for the art of jewellery making and a desire to showcase the beauty of natural gemstones. We take inspiration from the rich culture and heritage of Malawi, and incorporate both traditional and modern techniques into our designs. Our pieces are not just accessories, but works of art that tell a story of our passion and dedication to our craft. We believe that every piece of jewellery should be as unique as the person who wears it. That's why we offer a wide range of products including engagement rings, wedding rings, birthstone rings, earrings, necklaces and pendants. Whether you're looking for a timeless piece to mark a special occasion, or a statement piece to express your individuality, we have something for everyone. Visit us today and let us help you find the perfect piece to add to your collection.
