This is my second purchase from Gemsberry and will not be my last. I love this shop! The quality is excellent and the pictures don't do justice to these pieces. This ring is beyond gorgeous. Every time I put it on, I can't believe it's mine! I also have referred my dad to this shop and my mom is really happy about that. He also has purchased two rings that are GORGEOUS.

About

Gems And Berries In Artisan Style

I have been passionate about gemstone jewelry since I can remember myself (maybe four years old), my father taught me how to solder when I was eleven. I used to "reassemble" and "improve” my mother's jewelry. As you can assume it would take her by surprise. Both my parents are engineers and I inherited the interest in assembling things, taking what didn't work apart and making it work together. Creating new things make me extremely happy.

I became a jewelry artist because I couldn't find the styles that I wanted, and I was very peculiar about the quality of gemstones. So I started making jewelry for myself. Though I had an Art school background it had been a dormant asset for years. Finally I was able to step out from the corporate world to solely focus on my passion and opened GemsBerry®.
GemsBerry® is a reflection of nature's beauty. Nature gives us so many wonderful things - bright flowers, colorful birds, juicy berries and sparkling gemstones.
I wanted to make fine jewelry with top-grade gemstones that would be beautiful, unique and not to overpay for it. Hand-made, made to order, OOAK (one-of-a-kind) was the original idea of luxury when artisan families worked in small workshops, excelling their skills and selecting the best materials they could get. Now this pattern is substituted with mass-market luxury when corporations sell the perception of their brand focusing on maximising profits and cutting corners.

GemsBerry® is a jewelry boutique that brings you to the origin of luxury. What you get is the value. Carefully selected gemstones and pearls are the staple for GemsBerry® designs. I spend a great deal of time on hunting unique gems that are fairly priced and I pass these saving to customers. I set gems in sterling and fine silver, 14K gold or mix with gold filled, silver and gold plated components.
My absolute favorites are cocktail rings, where I can convey quality and beauty of gemstones. Also you can find day-time and statement necklaces, bracelets, pendants and earring in my shop.
I'm a perfectionist type. If I'm not happy with the design I will remake it multiple time until this is IT. Sometimes it takes half of a year to finalize a design. I don't make an item unless I'm eager to wear it myself.

I have a wonderful team – my husband is my first artistic adviser, who helps me with selection from multiple versions of design, and my cat Mr. Fishpaw who comes to support me with his purr-purrs:)

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy browsing my shop. Please drop me a line if you have any questions, I'm always happy to hear from customers!

Cheers,
Natalie

    I love beauty of all kinds - art, nature and people. I became a jeweler because I couldn't find styles I wanted, I started making it myself. I went to Art school, it had been a dormant asset for years, finally I left corporate to focus on my passion.

Thank you for visiting GemsBerry!

HAND-MADE IS LUXURY
Hand-made, made to order, OOAK (one-of-a-kind) was the original idea of luxury when artisan families worked in small workshops, excelling their skills and selecting the best materials they could get.
Now this pattern is substituted with mass-market luxury when corporations sell the perception of their brand focusing on maximising profits and cutting corners (for example when you buy a designer bag you pay x10-20 margin).

WHAT YOU GET IS VALUE
GemsBerryⓇ is a jewelry boutique that brings you to the origin of luxury. What you get is the value. Carefully selected gemstones and pearls are the staple for GemsBerry designs. I spend a great deal of time on hunting unique gems that are fairly priced. I set them in sterling and fine silver, 14K gold or mix with gold filled, silver and gold plated components. Not suiting gems are sorted out.

What you pay is what you get. The value of my jewelry is quality supplies and my work which I price quite modestly. You don't need to overpay for management expenses, rent and corporate profits if you buy directly from artisans (as you may already know as an Etsy buyer). If the necklace contains a lot of sterling silver and AAA-grade gems you pay for this quality. If it's more casual design with less precious materials it's very affordable.

I MAKE WHAT I WANT TO WEAR MYSELF
If I'm not happy with the design I will remake it multiple time until this is IT. Sometimes it takes half of a year to finalize a design.
I don't make an item unless I'm eager to wear it myself.
