I Personally Mine, Cut, & Polish VIRGINIA Gemstones, and Individually Create Settings of Sterling Silver or 14K Gold, to Yield Unique Jewelry.

100% Hand Crafted,

100% Virginia

100% Created with Love

OK, I do have some Finer International Gemstones, so 95% Virginia.

My store is a working studio where I employ a full set of lapidary and metal smithing equipment, (Excepting the larger diamond saws). I am continuously creating unique products. The store includes a display of antique mining tools, Virginia mineral specimens, and the window display exhibits some of my cooler minerals and cutting materials. The walls are covered with Va. geologic maps and include a few pictures of the Worlds Most Precious Gem: The Grandgoober !

Leah, my pampered Shiz Tzu, is a daily occupant, and most likely will be found in the store window, waiting for YOU to spoil her.

The Christmas season will showcase the six foot lighted tree covered in hundreds of polished cabochons and gemstones.

Store Location. The 49-E West Water Street address is a little misleading. I am located at the bottom of the Water Street Parking Deck. Pull into the (Free) 1 hour parking and you are looking at my store. Rule of thumb, if you walk more than 10 feet from the Parking Deck, you missed me !
