About

Whimsical Gemstone Sterling Silver Jewelry

Our adventure begins in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, our hometown for nearly 41 years. Our small family has an old adage that may be familiar to you as well: "From a little acorn, a mighty oak grows." We aspire to create something unique for you from our hearts. We selected the name "Gemdrops of the Falls" to reflect our love for the beautiful natural waterfalls in our community.

We believe in making beautiful jewelry that we would like to wear ourselves. We work primarily in Sterling Silver and 14 Karat Gold. Our favorite creations are made with Semi-Precious Gemstones, Freshwater Pearls, and Venetian Glass from Murano, Italy. Therefore, there is no compromise in the quality of each piece; if we wouldn't choose to wear it neither should you.

Our entire family comes together to create Gemdrops of the Falls jewelry. We are the third and fourth generations from our grandfather, an accomplished watchmaker and jeweler in Riga, Latvia during WWII. We try our best to follow in his legacy.

Our handmade jewelry is ready made and sold as is. However, we can alter some pieces for a small fee. All earrings come standard size, even in the kid's section, and can change to posts, wires or lever backs. The additional charges are: Sterling Silver pierced lever backs $5. Please contact us first about a piece you're interested in so we can confirm if changes are possible. Once confirmed, we will update the listing price and title it a custom listing for you.

We measure in inches, but don't be shy about asking any questions on our measurements. Feel free to request more photos.

Due to a recent increase in the price of Sterling Silver, we've had to increase our prices so we can continue affording to design for you. We will monitor the market and adjust our prices accordingly. Thanks for understanding!

Additional policies and FAQs
Because Freshwater Pearls are produced by living organisms, they require special care due to calcareous crystals that are sensitive to chemicals and acids. To care for your cultured Pearls, avoid using perfumes, cosmetics, hairspray, abrasives, solvents, and nail polish removers while wearing them. Don't use ultrasonic cleaners. Wipe with a damp soft cloth having mild soap and water. Like your skin, cultured Pearls contain water and may dehydrate and crack if exposed continuously to heat. Store Pearls in a protective chamois pouch or tissue.

The best way to clean Swarovski crystals is to wipe them with a warm, wet facecloth with mild gentle dish soap. Next, wipe with a warm wet facecloth without soap. Finish by wiping with a clean dry facecloth. Any and all other cleaners can cause damage to the crystals.

Since Sterling Silver is a precious metal, it may need cleaning occasionally. Chlorine and bleach should be avoided with Sterling Silver because they accelerate tarnishing. Using a soft cloth, gently rub the Sterling several times. Then rinse the Sterling thoroughly in warm water and dry carefully. This cleaning process will remove any tarnish or lack of shine and get your Sterling looking like new again. You can also use a special jewelry polishing cloth from your local jewelry store. However, if the cloth is chemically treated avoid Amber, Coral, Emerald, Ivory, Jade, Lapis, Malachite, Opal and Pearls.

Pearls, Sterling Silver, and Gemstones are sensitive and will last longer if you take care of them, so try to put your jewelry on last.

Since we are a small family business, we are not interested in wholesale or consignment at this time. But thank you for your interest!
