1. A Hand-Carved Gemstone Globe

Our hand-carved gemstone globes have been appreciated by many all around the world for nearly 20 years. Each country is represented by a gemstone that is indigenous to that specific country. You can’t go wrong with this handmade work of art, as it makes a perfect gift from a college graduate.

You’d be wise to act quickly because we stopped producing our gemstone globes. Once they are out of stock, they will never be back! The beautiful thing about these pieces is that they are a timeless treasure and can be passed down from generation to generation.

Here is my personal favorite!
