Our passion for the Earth and it's gifts...
While we, Nancy and Dave, initially planned on going to Arizona to escape the Wisconsin winter, we ended up falling in love with all the earthly gifts we discovered at the Tuscon International Gem & Mineral Show. This experience inspired us to open a gem store in the historic art community of Cambridge, WI. As we explored other gem shows across the country, we met Meghan Barthel, an experienced creative and passionate mineral expert. This serendipitous encounter was how she became manager of Ruby Rose Gallery. Why Ruby Rose? The inspiration for the name comes from our dear daughter Emma Rose and our golden doodle Ruby. She was the best dog ever and we miss her every day.
Ruby Rose Gallery opened its doors in 2017 with one purpose, to share these beautiful gifts with the people of the Midwest.
