About

University, gemstones and designer jewelry

What you see here was born out of a high school hobby. Instead of playing video games and hanging out with friends, I was in my workshop with my nose to the grindstone.

Now that I'm in college, I decided I'd combine my unique gemcutting abilities with the business skills I learn in class.

It's my mission to put genuine, 100% natural gemstones into your hands. Here, you'll see an alternative to the mass-made, corporate manufactured jewelry you see everywhere else.

I look forward to working with you.

Frequently asked questions
How do returns work?

You can return an item if you contact me seven days within delivery. Once I receive the item you're returning, I'll issue a refund on your purchase. Be sure to return the item 2 weeks within the agreement of return.

Where do I source my raw materials?

I get my rough gemcutting material from various gem shows over the course of the year - though, I get the majority of my material from Quartzsite, one of the bigger shows, held annually in Arizona.

Who does what?

I, Nick McIntosh, wear all the hats in the business (with my girlfriend occasionally shooting pictures for me).

How do customs work?

If you're ordering from outside the US, you're fully responsible for the customs, duties, VAT, and import taxes imposed on the order.

When did I start?

I've been cutting rocks ever since middle school - now I'm 20, so I have a good amount of experience.

Would you do wholesale orders?

I can cut jewelry for wholesale prices as long as you're requesting them in bulk - at least 50 pieces of jewelry.

How much does shipping cost?

For all jewelry, shipping is FREE!

Though, for minerals, spheres, and other items shipping is calculated by Etsy and usually turns out around $5-$10 within the United States and the price goes up depending on how far outside the states you are.

How do personalized orders work?

If you want a personal touch to your jewelry, send me a message and I'll see what I can do. More often than not, I can help you get a custom jewelry piece. Though, custom pieces take slightly longer than the usual made to order listings, so keep that in mind.
