HolyGems CEO Tali Shalem-Taub recounted how her father discovered Israel's natural deposits of precious jewels all thanks to the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

“I come from a family of pioneer jewelers,” said Tali Shalem-Taub, CEO of HolyGems, “and we are proud to be the first and exclusive brand to present these new Israeli natural treasures to the world.”

Speaking at the Jerusalem Post Conference in New York on Monday, Shalem-Taub recounted that many years ago, her late father, Avi Taub, followed the words of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who said that gems were to be found in the Land of Israel.

“Despite skepticism, and by the power of faith, millions of dollars were invested over the past twenty-three years in exploring for these rare gems.”

“Despite skepticism, and by the power of faith, millions of dollars were invested over the past 23 years in exploring for these rare gems,” said Shalem-Taub. He added that respected scientists and geologists from Australia, South Africa and Canada issued confirmations after extensive scientific research showing findings that left no room for doubt.

Finding Israel's gems

In March 2020, Shalem-Taub said, for the first time in history, Israel’s supervisor of mines issued a certificate of discovery confirming that HolyGems had in fact found the first-ever economic deposit of precious gems in Israel.

Today, Shalem-Taub said, HolyGems sells blue and green sapphires, burgundy and red garnets, black spinel stones, and its most unusual discovery, the Carmel Sapphire, a new gem in the market, which is found only in Israel.
