Several months ago Caitlin from Etsy.com/shop/agujayclavojewelry shared her turquoise necklace. This time she is back with an awesome Southwest style ring using an Illusion Sunstone from Bright Star Gemstones. Keep up the good work!
One of Bright Star Gemstones customers, Paula from Ogden, UT, created this simple yet elegantly sweet tourmaline ring. Thanks Paula for sharing this with me. Great job!
Using a round fantasy cut Smoky Quartz gemstone from Bright Star as the focal point, master jeweler Jonathan Coleman fabricated a really unique out-of- this-world pendant. Jonathan can be found on Instagram as Dreamweaved Designs.

About

Rocks. Minerals. Gemstones. A New Life!

I feel extremely lucky every day to have a profession that excites me and fills me with passion.

It's funny how a vacation can change your life. In 2001, a good friend talked me into joining him in Brazil. Yes, the land of endless gemstones - sparkling quartz, multi-color tourmaline, sea blue aquamarine, deep purple amethyst, golden citrine and so many more. The natural beauty was just one factor. After working in the apparel and sporting goods industries for over 25 years, the planned obsolescence, ever-changing fashion tastes and overly competitive nature of business had really started to get to me. Gemstones offered an opportunity in an entirely different direction.

Now after almost 10 years in the gemstone business, I only have one regret: Not starting sooner!
