A little about our beloved "RUSTIC" diamonds ... so perfectly imperfect.
Here at J E W E L L U X E, we embrace the imperfect showcasing their unique characteristics.

RUSTIC diamonds range in color saturation and hues from white (clear), yellow, red, blue, and all the different combinations available. Different trace elements naturally produce the colors or they can be treated to enhance or produce certain colors. Often you'll find a combination of hues, saturation, and/or patterns that are unique, organic-looking - naturally beautiful!

Eye visible inclusions give these diamonds their inherent personalities. Semi-transparent to opaque in clarity, inclusions are present internally and externally. There are many creative terms describing their appearance. Here are just a few endearing classifications:

SALT & PEPPER - light-colored diamonds that have eye-visible black and/or white inclusions. When the light hits the inclusions they sparkle internally like our galaxy. The higher the concentration of dark inclusions the darker the diamond appears.
ICY - clear or whitish diamonds with visible internal inclusions that resemble the milky way or crushed ice. The surface sparkle is amazing and the internal brilliance depends on the transparency and cut.
MILKY - white diamonds with strong fluorescence giving the diamonds an opalescence or a bluish hue.

BRILLIANT CUT is the standard faceting arrangement featuring 58 facets. Brilliant cut faceting delivers the maximum beauty showcasing both internal and external sparkle. This style of faceting is available in a variety of SHAPES like rounds, pear, oval, marquise, heart, emerald, cushion, and asher. There are other shapes with a variation of the facet count like princess, radiant, triangle, trillion, kite, briolette, and other designer shapes.

ROSE CUT (or rosette) diamonds have been adorning jewelry since the middle of the 16th century. Their brilliance radiates from triangular facets forming a pattern radiating from the apex of the stone. Typically, the top of the stone is domed and the bottom is a flat polished surface. The total number of facets and arrangements vary.

Diamond SLICES have recently emerged into the jewelry industry around 2010. Thin slices of diamonds are cut from the included diamond rough. Unique patterns formed by inclusions (matrix) are showcased with this faceting style that reveals their decorative beauty. Faceting consists of a large, flat table with triangular facets on the outer edge and the bottom might be slightly faceted, flat, and polished. The cutting style, size, shape, count, and placement vary. Thickness also varies and the thin slices are very fragile. Diamond slices are prized for their interesting matrix inclusions.

While diamonds are the hardest known substance to man, they can be damaged and inclusions can affect their durability.

About Jewelluxe

J e w e l l u x e - creating beautiful jewels for all

From an early age, Janine drew inspiration from everything around her: composition in nature, patterns in textiles and the rhythmic tempos of music. This endless curiosity would later become the framework that defines the Jewelluxe brand.

In 1986, taking her passion for precious gemstones - and adventure - Janine moved from Vancouver to California, where she attended the Gemological Institute of America. Following graduation, she gained experience in wholesale, manufacturing and retail. By 1993, she had opened her storefront in Redondo Beach, California. As awareness of her unique designs grew, her custom jewelry gained credibility - attracting local and celebrity clientele.

Today, Janine continues to share her immense creativity, knowledge and dedication to quality with her online community creating inspired pieces that will surely be passed down from generation to generation.

Our J E W E L L U X E style is a blend of many different elements and mediums that are tweaked until perfection. We use recycled, reclaimed metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium. Our pieces are made with conflict-free, traditional and non-traditional diamonds or gemstones. We use genuine gems and diamonds that are hand selected for their innate beauty. Featuring natural inclusions, we embrace them, showcasing their individual beauty.

Hopefully, our imagination shines brightly for you!

An ode to C U S T O M (Bespoke):

How often do you have the chance to have creative input? Here we collaborate with you to custom design that special, meaningful piece. It starts with an idea, an inspiration. We love it when you send us pictures/links or sketches with your ideas. We will help you create that special piece. Some projects are more complicated requiring more patience and time.

There's something special JewelLUXE offers besides creativity. We strive to provide you with an excellent product, expert craftsmanship with exceptional service.

We so understand that there are many choices, especially when it comes to jewelry. We sincerely appreciate that you've chosen us. Rest assured you are working with seasoned professionals who take personal pride in their work.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

We specialize in custom orders and work together with you to create/design your own piece. Once the design and estimate are approved, a deposit/payment is required to commence further work.

When your order is ready, we will contact you and make a listing for the balance.

If you wish to cancel your order after work has begun a restocking fee of 15% of the quoted price will be charged.

Production time varies from 2 - 4 weeks up to 6 weeks for more complex designs.

Please contact for RUSH orders which may incur a RUSH charge.

Our goal is to make your experience memorable!

Sizing details

Please CONFIRM your sizing with your local Jeweler. Ring sizing is tricky and you should try pieces on that are close to your desired piece in width, thickness and style. Remember when you stack rings they become tighter.

We will gladly resize any ring you buy from us. Resizing charge starts from $65, which includes return insured shipping. Larger sizes may cost more. Please contact us before shipping the ring back and let us know the size needed. Include a note with your return with your name, shipping address, email address and size needed. Current processing time is 1-3 weeks. Resizing and shipping fees are not refundable.

Some pieces are impossible to adjust but we will do our best to assist you.

Care instructions

Jewelry is not indestructible, care should always be used while wearing it. To give your ring the care it deserves, we recommend not wearing your ring while: showering, washing dishes, cleaning, sleeping, exercising, gardening, or doing any other activity that may cause damage.

TIPS for cleaning most jewels (not opals, pearls, coral + non-crystal material):

Spray with glass cleaner ("Windex" ) directly on most jewels and scrub with a soft toothbrush or lint-free cloth. Rinse under cold water, repeat until clean. Pat dry with a lint-fee cloth.

Or give your jewelry a quick cleaning by mixing together warm water and a few squirts of mild dishwashing liquid. Soak your ring for 5-10 minutes then brush gently with a soft toothbrush and rinse.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Our jewels come packaged and ready to gift.

If you'd like special gift wrapping just send us a message and we'll make sure your gift is wrapped with care.

We also fully insure your purchase. Items over $400 will require a signature unless you let us know otherwise.

Warranty

I offer a limited one year warranty against manufacturing defects in material or workmanship. I do not cover damage due to neglect or abuse.

Loss, theft or damage of the main stone is not covered under our warranty. Contact your insurance agent to insure your fine jewelry. We recommend Jeweler's Mutual for insurance coverage. Jewelry is not indestructible.

Lost side stones will be replaced at no charge or at cost for a one year period after the purchase with normal wear and tear, excluding eternity rings. Stones will shift when a piece is sized or damaged. Message us if your piece needs repair work with pictures.

If another jeweler works on one of my pieces, this warranty will be voided.

You are responsible for all shipping costs.
