Precious gems
The Ben Yona family began their journey with precious gemstones when the father, Yona Ben Yona was released from his active army service and accepted the position, in Jerusalem, as assistant polisher in an emerald polishing plant owned by the Government of Israel.

In 1959 when the government factory that was managed by Yona Ben-Yona was taken over by the private sector, Israel's top precious gem expert opened his own company in 1970. At that time the precious stones industry flourished in the new Israel Diamond Exchange, located in Ramat Gan Israel.

Today, Israel is one of the world centers for precious gems and diamonds. B.Y. Ben Yona Ltd is located in the heart of this great commercial complex specializing in exporting Emeralds, Tanzanite, Spinel, Ruby, and Aqua Marine of all shapes and sizes.
