GemCords was started by Jodie Diamond Limsky in the spring of 2017. Having always been an “amateur” jewelry designer and fabricator and having made a multitude of pieces for family and friends, Jodie was approached by a New Jersey based webstore to carry her “line.” After a week or two of logo design, artwork and pricing – GemCords was born. GemCords are made of semi-precious stones and neckcords and leather accents. GemCords are unique and designed to stand out not only for their vibrant stones and combinations, but especially for their versatility.
GemCords come in a multitude of styles and designs. The line is complimented with 3 styles of bracelets, as well as 6 styles of earrings. GemCord gems and accessories are sourced worldwide. From India, China, London, Thailand and Portugal to more locally in Tucson and New York City – we are always on the hunt for new pieces to make your GemCord unique and different!
GemTags, a division of GemCords, was born out of necessity. Jodi Gimbely sought us out after going through a medical event herself and wanting a medical alert bracelet that was fashionable as well providing life saving information. After designing a custom piece for Jodi, she saw how well this one of a kind medical alert bracelet was received by others and GemTags was born. GemTags’ hope is that by incorporating a medical id bracelet into a beautiful piece of jewelry with custom engraving specific to your medical needs, that women who previously avoided wearing a medical id bracelet when they really needed one, will now embrace them!
