Providing High Quality Beads and Service

KK Gems and Beads Inc. in Gaithersburg, MD was established in 1990 by Khwaja and Reshma Ali and founded on the belief that customer service is of the utmost importance. Because our customers are consistently satisfied, we have expanded our stores throughout the region, and we continue to grow. 

Being in the jewelry business came naturally for Khwaja. In his hometown in India, his family, along with other neighborhood women, worked at the local jewelry/bead factory. He was amazed by the bead designs and the inspirational jewelry pieces that these women put together. He was also fascinated by the process and the industry. 

These early experiences influenced him to open a bead, gem, and sterling silver store.

Khwaja and his wife, Reshma, established KK Gems and Beads Inc. with a simple goal: to provide the best quality and selection of sterling silver in the region and offer customers a wide variety of high-quality precious and semi-precious stones, beads, and findings. 

Come and visit us in Gaithersburg or at the Bethesda Women's Farmer’s Market on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Khwaha and Reshma look forward to meeting you and supplying all of your beading needs. Happy jewelry making!

Our 5 Star Yelp Reviews

Even though I was unable to find a crystal that could fit in my watch, I was given great advise on how I could fix it with other alternatives. The 1mm crystal from my watch could be replaced by other methods! First store that seemed to care about my item. –Carmen


This store has a great selection of silver beads and findings (and some gold and vermeil too), gemstone beads (from very affordable to only-in-my-dreams), and some other beads as well (pearls, Swarovski, Czech crystal, etc). It is a smaller, basic store, but the owner is such a gracious woman it was easy to see why she was so popular. While I was there, she helped several different people find very particular pieces for jewelry they were working on, and she also offered to search for and custom order pieces as well. She sells at the Bethesda Women's Coop on Wednesdays and Fridays, and will bring any inventory there if you ask her. Her husband is just as friendly and helpful. – Michelle


This store has very interesting jewelry at reasonable prices. The best part is that the owner, Reshma, will work with you to create your own design with any of the beads and gems the store has. I have received many compliments from persons who notice my unique jewelry. – Ana


This store is located near the Goodwill on Frederick Ave. It's a nice, quaint store with lots of selection. The owner, Reshma, is so very nice and helpful. I brought a bracelet in that needed a clasp of some kind. She quickly came up with several options. I was impressed with what she devised. She knows her stuff. — Gregory
