specializes in exotic jewelry made from Zambian and neighboring African mined
semi-precious stones, gold and silver. What started in 2001 as a hobby, soon
turned into a passion and a successful business venture. In the process, we
discovered the importance of Service, Accountability and a Sense of ownership. Motivated
by the lack of affordable jewelry to the local Zambians, we came up with an
impressive price range.
Gemstones used are sourced from small scale miners from all over Zambia and
Africa, so that each piece of jewelry is a memoir and souvenir of Africa’s rich
We developed a Jewelry
business model, based on smaller margin of profit with higher turnover. To site
an example, we rationalized the price structure of Tanzanite based on this
principal in 2013. As a result, our competitors had to slash their prices down and
today Zambian market has become one of the highly competitive consumer markets
for Tanzanite, thanks to Bobbilies business model. Similarly, we are producing the widest range of wedding rings
for the Zambian market, at incredibly affordable price. Consequentially, we
have had a phenomenal success.

I got both my engagement and wedding rings from Bobbili Gems at Arcades Lusaka after checking with many other players in the jewelry business.
I loved the customer experience that was given to both myself and my partner now my beloved wife Agatha from the very first time we walked in to get our ring sizes to the time we chose our rings. the service was very good, the staff is very welcoming and friendly & always willing to help make right choice. I recommend Bobbili Gems to all my friends and colleagues looking to get a perfect ring for their partner, visit Bobbili Gems & you will never go wrong.
I shop at Bobbili Gems for gifts and for my own jewelry. What a delight that has always been due to the exemplary service! Their gemstones are of wonderful clarity and cuts. The jewelry is of innovative designs and is a pleasure to wear. I have had pieces made to specification and they have been to my expectation.
