We source our genuine gemstones from suppliers with whom we have established trusting relationships over our 45 years in business. We also have a close relationship with the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). In fact, we facilitated their inaugural jewelry curriculum by providing our production facility for their video education production. Great sourcing and knowledge is only the beginning of quality gemstone jewelry. When working with genuine stones, we appreciate the fact that Mother Nature has her fingerprint on each and every stone. And so the challenge begins when we are creating a multi-stone piece and need to match the stones within the piece, sometimes a dozen stones or more. For our collectors, whether it be a single stone or multi-stone design, this means you are receiving the finest gems and shells, passionately sorted and hand set in your one of a kind piece of jewelry!
