Unique Stone Jewels
We travel, find and make
We make and sell jewellery from natural gemstones that we travel the world to acquire first-hand. Through the decades we have formed trusted relationships and friendships with brokers and gem-dealers. Through this intimate trust Jay is able to use her experience to hand-select the very best quality gemstones, one of the reasons we have, and never will, by stones long distance. Locally we travel to mines in southern Africa, and where possible pull our picks and hammers from the car and dig for our own. We commit to full-disclosure as to any enhancement of stones, including heat-treatment and any other artificial practice, other than those treatments generally accepted by the industry. We aim to report provenance to the most accurate of our experiences and interactions. Many stones used in our jewellery were shaped from rough bought, cut, tumbled, drilled and polished by Jay in her lapidary studio at home. All these designs are Jay’s unique originals. She has used her knowledge and experience of her network of local and international jewellers to complete some of our designs using their particular set of skills.
We travel, find and make. Working with the small guys that know us, and know we know stones. We take pride in knowing that each piece is a one-of-a-kind gemstone treasure.
