Welcome to EsmeraldaTurquoise!

Our Philosophy. We choose to work with gems in order to bring natural beauty to your creations while maintaining respect for the stones, the land, and the work of mining and cutting them. In our over 20 years experience with the entire process, we have learned this respect first hand. Through our business practices, we strive to pass on this care of our precious gifts. As such, we mine the gems ourselves in small scale, conscientious operations, or purchase them directly from miners and others who obtain their gems in ethical ways. We also cut most of our gems in our own studios.

In addition to our own high standards, we are members-as Out of Our Mines-of the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) which promotes ethical business practices and disclosure of all gem treatments. We always disclose any gem treatments. If a stone is stated as ‘unenhanced’ or ‘natural’ it is guaranteed to be unaltered by humans other than cutting and polishing. Honesty and disclosure are extremely important to us, so you can have confidence that your stones from us are ethically sourced.

Thank you for helping us make this philosophy a reality…you are the next step in making this a more beautiful, ethical, and joyful world…
