Banking-compatible gemstones for investment and wealth diversification as a new asset class

GEMblock, a Swiss FinTech organization, is reshaping global finance for affluent individuals and institutions by offering gemstones – like rubies, sapphires, and other select precious stones – as a stable, market-agnostic investment option. 

By establishing a new asset class, GEMblock unlocks a multi-billion dollar market.

About Us

Our Mission

GEMblock pioneers the integration of gemstones into the global financial landscape, offering a stable, market-resistant investment.

By leveraging our proprietary Digitally Melting™️ technology, we create a new, fungible, and banking compatible asset class, safeguarding wealth against the volatilities of traditional investments.

Our Vision

The vision of GEMblock is to redefine and dominate the global gemstone market by establishing a new and universally recognized asset class based on investment grade coloured gemstones.

What does "new asset class" mean?

GEMblock brings gemstones into a structured financial framework, meeting the criteria necessary for an emerging asset class.

When an asset becomes recognized as an asset class, it signifies a major development in the financial markets. An asset class is a grouping of investments that exhibit similar characteristics, and behave similarly in the marketplace. 

The recognition of an asset as an asset class typically means it has achieved:

Widespread Acceptance

The asset is widely recognized by investors and analysts as a distinct category suitable for investment. This acceptance is often underpinned by a consensus regarding the asset's value proposition and the role it can play in diversification and risk management strategies

Trustworthy Framework

The asset is supported by a framework that provides guidelines for its trade and ownership. This framework helps in establishing trust among investors, ensuring that the market for the asset operates smoothly and transparently.

Market Liquidity

The asset possesses a degree of market liquidity that allows investors to buy and sell it with relative ease. Liquidity is crucial as it affects the asset's price stability and the ability of investors to enter or exit positions without causing significant price disruptions.

Investment Vehicles

There are specific investment vehicles and instruments available that enable investors to gain exposure to the asset. These can include direct investments, funds, and other financial products designed around the asset, making it accessible to a broader range of investors.

Risk and Return Profile

The asset has a distinct risk and return profile that differentiates it from other investments. Investors and financial analysts understand these characteristics and can evaluate how the asset fits into diversified investment portfolios.

Market Infrastructure

There is an established market infrastructure for trading, clearing, and settling transactions involving the asset. This infrastructure supports the operational aspects of investing in the asset, contributing to its acceptance as an asset class.

All these criteria are met by gold today. However, before 1987, gold had not been established as an asset class as it is now. Individuals could only buy and sell coins or bullions in banks, and trade was predominantly between governments.

On 14 December 1987, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) was formally incorporated, establishing guidelines that led to the creation of gold as an asset class.

Today, the LBMA actively participates in market development, including the evolution of financial products related to gold, such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and over-the-counter (OTC) instruments. This innovation has diversified the ways investors can access gold, broadening its appeal and opening up a multi-trillion-dollar market.

Why Gemstones?

For over 5000 years, gemstones have symbolized wealth and power, consistently representing value and prestige.


Unlike gold or diamonds, the market for colored gemstones, such as rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, remains free from oligopolistic controls. This independence ensures a level of market integrity and openness not always found in other asset classes.


With an estimated annual value of newly mined gemstones at $35 billion, their rarity is unquestionable. This market size is substantial enough to form its own asset class, yet remains intricately small and complex, deterring governmental control, unlike gold.


History lacks precedent for the banning or confiscation of gemstones, unlike other precious assets such as silver or gold. This freedom adds an extra layer of security for investors.


Formed over the span of millions of years, each gemstone is a masterpiece of nature, unparalleled and distinctive, much like a fingerprint, making every piece a unique investment.


Historically, gemstones have maintained their buying power, demonstrating resilience against market volatility and preserving wealth over time.

Low Volatility

Focusing on safety and stability, gemstones present an investment path with lower volatility. This approach prioritizes long-term security over the pursuit of quick, high-risk returns.


The value of gemstones is not tied to the fluctuations of traditional financial markets, providing a strategic hedge in diversified investment portfolios.


Rare, high-quality gemstones have shown a consistent appreciation in value, underpinned by their scarcity and sustained demand. This long-term growth potential makes gemstones a compelling choice for the investor.

A Low-Volatile Investment

Gemstones represent an exceptional investment avenue, distinct from the volatile swings of cryptocurrencies and stocks. They provide a solid foundation for growth, with a trajectory that's both steady and predictable. Impressively, they stand toe-to-toe with the returns of esteemed stock indices such as the MSCI World, S&P 500, or DAX, showcasing their competitive edge.

Low volatility – The value of gemstones is not influenced by transient market trends or market manipulation. Their valuation is solidly based on the rarity of tangible assets in the real world, ensuring a consistent measure of stability.
Market-agnostic – With no correlation to other asset classes they offer a protective barrier against the unpredictability of the market.
Growth and Inflation Resistance – The rare and limited nature of gemstones ensures not just the preservation but also the potential growth of the value over time, even amidst inflation.
Wealth Preservation – The history of gemstones in maintaining their worth through political and economic challenges attests to their reliability as an investment during uncertain times.

This capability establishes us as a central hub within the gemstone investment sphere, catering to those who value the enduring qualities of gemstones stability, wealth preservation, and independence from the broader financial market's fluctuations.

4. Why are gemstones an interesting investment, especially for institutional investors?

Focus on Value Preservation

Institutional investors, tasked with managing third-party funds, prioritize the preservation of capital. Traditionally, this leads them to opt for conservative assets like fixed-income securities, real estate, and government bonds. However, these are not immune to economic downturns, currency devaluations, inflation, and sovereign debt crises, which can transform a seemingly secure investment into a volatile one. Or even losing one.

Practically Risk-Free Asset

Unlike other assets, land and gold, while generally safe, carry their own sets of risks, such as potential for conquest or expropriation. Gemstones, by contrast, stand out as a scalable and secure investment. Their tangible nature, scarcity, and resistance to arbitrary expansion position them as an unparalleled choice for foundational investments. This makes them an excellent cornerstone for conservative portfolios, offering a platform for more adventurous investment strategies without sacrificing stability.

Interest is the price one pays for the risk of an investment.

What does it mean, therefore, that there is no interest on gold and gemstones?

The absence of interest on assets like gold and gemstones signals their low risk profile. For entities like insurance companies or pension funds, the primary objective is not profit maximization but loss prevention. Gemstones align perfectly with this goal by safeguarding value over time.

Centuries-Long Upward Trend

Gemstones have demonstrated a consistent upward value trend across centuries. While other assets may show higher short-term gains, few can match the long-term availability and value retention of gemstones. From the 17th century to today, gemstones like rubies have not only preserved but increased in value, outliving even the oldest of stocks and highlighting their lasting appeal.

5. What are the key advantages and solutions of GEMblock?

Bridge Function

As the digital asset market evolves, the demand for grounded, practical blockchain applications intensifies. GEMblock stands as the architect of a crucial connection, merging the reliability and tested success of traditional business models with the world of blockchain technology. This strategic linkage not only validates the relevance of blockchain but also propels its integration into established marketplaces.

Digitization Resolves Complexity

The transactional journey of buying and selling gemstones, historically fraught with complexity, is now streamlined by our innovative digital solutions. We have transcended previous barriers by utilizing blockchain technology to render the inherently unique nature of gemstones into a tradable form.

The risk of total loss for investors in GEMblock is exceptionally low. We strategically allocate a large portion of all raised funds during the fundraising process directly into precious stones for liquidity. This approach ensures that, even in the least favorable outcomes, the tangible value of these assets remains accessible to investors, significantly reducing the financial risk involved. Engaging with GEMblock translates into an investment opportunity where the risk is remarkably contained.

7. What advantages do I have as an investor?

GEMblock prides itself on providing an exceptionally investor-friendly environment. This begins with choosing Switzerland as our base, known globally for its legal stability and security, offering investors peace of mind regarding their capital.

This structure allows investors the opportunity to take up to a 90% stake in this SPV. Additionally, GEMblock's operational model mandates the purchase of gemstones via the SPV, ensuring that the trading margin is retained within the company.
