Announcement    AdventureGemsJewelry provides our clients with one of a kind gorgeous natural gems from around the world, set in simple but elegant settings that show off the beauty of natural gemstones. We have earrings, rings, pendants, and bracelets, set with some of the most beautiful gems in the world. We can provide you with Beautiful jewelry set with Emeralds, Rubies, Sapphires, Tanzanites, Opals, Jade, Zircons, Spinels, Topaz, Tsavorite and Spessartine Garnets, Green and Purple Amethysts, Turquoise, Kyanite, and a WIDE variety of semi-precious gems of great beauty, including Moonstone, Chalcedony (blue, pink and aqua), Amazonite, Amber, Labradorite, Sodalite, and Obsidian, among many others.

NOTE OF IMPORTANCE: ALL Of OUR GEMs ARE REAL, not 'Created,' not 'Lab Made,' but REAL! Made in and mined from the earth! If you want natural gems from the EARTH, we have what you want. Real, natural gems have actual natural beauty, they have the mystical properties associated with their species, have much greater financial value, and hold that value, and more often than not, show increases in value, over time. These features are NOT the case with fake, man-made, 'created' gems.

BEWARE of FAKE gems in malls, ETSY, Shopify, Amazon, and throughout the INTERNET!!!! Look at the details !!!!! Most sellers won't mention up front that their 'gems' are fake!!! Their fakeness is only reported in fine print or buried in verbiage. WE ONLY SELL REAL NATURAL GEMS!!!! Unfortunately for the customer, many shops sell so-called 'created' or 'man made,' 'gems,' that are mass produced and, thus, near worthless.

Adventure Gems Jewelry is an American based gem and jewelry shop focused on the cutting and setting of NATURAL, RARE and UNIQUE GEMS from all over the world. All of our gemstones are natural, and thus, much more valuable than man-made or created stones. Being natural from the earth, they are more rare, unique and desirable than those readily made by man in a 'test tube'. Many jewelry gem items on the internet and mall stores are actually FAKE, man made or so called 'created.' That is not the case with Adventure Gems Jewelry. We sell real gems set in simple settings to show off nature's beauty in the gems themselves. A note of interest is that almost all precious gemstones coming on line, in either rough or faceted form, are at least mildly heated to enhance their color. Heat can be assumed if not otherwise clearly noted. The importance of heat is that non heated fine precious gems are very very rare and more expensive than most anything sold on ETSY or similar sites. For example, a Columbian Emerald, VS2/SI 1 clarity, with good color, UNHEATED can cost upwards toward $12,000.00 per carat. The same characteristics in a mildly heated gem yields a cost range of $1,500-2,000 per carat. Heat is used to augment, and sometimes intensify, color but it does not change the internal structure or characteristics of the gems. Point made.

Natural, beautiful Gems need no elaborate, distracting jewelry settings. The Gems, themselves, reflect nature's stunning and AWESOME beauty. Thus our focus on simple, but elegant, jewelry settings in gold, silver and rose gold.

We perform extensive gemological testing on all our rough and cut stones to insure their naturalness and identify their gem species. This provides our clients and customers with the best possible assurance of quality, naturalness, and validity of gem names.

OUR GEMS are NATURAL and EARTH MADE. The prices are fairly based on the monthly GEMVAL.com actual average pricing of all major gems, and the London End of Month Gold and Silver Price Fix. GEMVAL is the major and most respected gem price evaluation group in the world. Our prices are NOT based on how beautiful or creative we think our work is, but actual, regularly updated, world average pricing converted to US Dollars. Our customers get actual market prices, not theory based prices. Thus we can guarantee a good deal with every item.

Our Business is Gemology #1, and Jewelry #2. We acquire or cut (from rough) beautiful, unique gems and set them in jewelry. We have multiple lines of jewelry including: Simple Elegance (settings that emphasize the beauty of the natural gem without setting or side stone distractions), Traditional (more ornate settings and/or with smaller gem accents), and Exotic/Mystical (unusual or weird, ultra-unique gems, unusual semi precious gems in unique settings, and gems with specific legendary or mystical qualities). Our gems are set in a variety of settings such as in rings, earrings and pendants/necklaces.

Check out our primary website for more information about us and for some serious gem education: www.adventuregems.biz. Visit all of our ETSY store items for rare, unique, and elegant gem jewelry at accurate, reasonable market prices for REAL, NATURAL GEMS, set in simple, elegant, and traditional jewelry settings. We offer a variety of gem settings in 14K Gold, 10K Gold, Sterling Silver, Silver Plate, and Rose Gold Plated Sterling Silver. Our jewelry ranges in price from high end, super rare gems to less expensive semi-precious but very interesting gems with unique properties or appearance. We have something unique and special for every taste and every price range !!!!

About

Gem Trading+Gem Cutting+Artistic Metallurgy+Alchemy=AdventureGemsJewelry.com

Adventure Gems started many years before I was born, with my parents going gem hunting in many locations starting in Western North Carolina and moving way beyond. As they progressed in sophistication, they took up gem trading and later, gem cutting. They developed contacts in Brazil, then Asia, then Australia, and eventually throughout the world.
Along the way I was born in 1987 and since age 3, I've been involved with their gemology activities (hunting pretty gravel as a 4 or 5 year old, and gems after age 12 or so). In college I learned welding, chemistry, physics, and metallurgy and eventually combined these skills with my parents' and my passion, gemology and it's articulation, jewelry. The result after over 40 years of evolution is...AdventureGemsJewelry.com
