Custom Diamond & Gemstone Jewelry

Welcome to Rare Earth Jewelry. I'm a San Francisco Bay Area artist creating fine jewelry in gold, platinum, palladium and sterling silver. For me, handcrafted means more than just made by my hands, it means that every aspect of my jewelry has been ethically sourced and responsibly crafted.

A great part of my passion for making jewelry is in the materials. All of the diamonds used in my jewelry are conflict free, the gemstones Fair Trade, and 90% of the precious metals used in my designs are recycled and then refined for purity.

I've always had a love affair with gems. I cut my first cabochon at the age of 12, grinding and polishing it by hand, under the tutelage of my aunt and uncle, both lifelong geology, gemology and lapidary experts. It took me a month to complete that first stone, but I was hooked.

As I began making fine jewelry, I realized just how hard it was to find high quality stones. Disappointed with the stones ordered from jewelry supply catalogs, I began my own search, haunting gem shows for interesting specimens. Now over twenty years later, I import diamonds and gemstones from all over the world, and what began as a hobby is a full blown obsession, and a job that I love; creating jewelry with the perfect gems, those unique cuts and hard to find stones, as well as tried and true favorites of excellent quality.

The relationships I've built over the years with artisan miners and stone cutters allows me access to top quality material at excellent prices. You'll see those savings reflected in my prices as well, which I'm sure you'll find are much more affordable than comparable custom jewelry.

I offer a full range of services, from one of a kind custom designs, to semi-custom, utilizing both traditional wax casting methods and the latest in auto-cad computer design. I can even reset an heirloom stone. If you'd like to create something special, I'd love to work with you.

Frequently asked questions
Custom & Special Orders

Custom and special order pieces have been created to your exact specifications, customized with particular stones, or designed with your approval and they are not returnable. Rings that are above a ring size 9 or below a ring size 4 are not returnable. If you have any questions about the return policy for an item you are interested in, please don't hesitate to inquire.

Ring Sizing

Rings with plain bands can be resized up or down if necessary, but rings with diamonds set into the bands can only be resized a small amount in either direction, so its very important that the ring be ordered in the correct size. If you are at all unsure about the ring size you need, I have a ring sizer available here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/116850181

Rings that are above a ring size 9 or below a ring size 4 are considered custom orders and are not returnable.

Eternity bands are not resizeable. For questions about ring sizes and international ring size conversions, please ask prior to purchase.

Warranty & Guarantee

All of my jewelry is guaranteed to be as described or your money back. In addition, all of my pieces are warranted for one year from date of purchase for any defects in materials or workmanship. The item may be returned for repair or replacement at no cost to you. Any modification, resizing or alteration by another jeweler will void this warranty.

For assistance with repairs after the warranty period, don't hesitate to contact me.

Shipping & Insurance

All items ship via Express or Priority Mail with tracking and a signature required for delivery. Your jewelry is fully insured until it's delivered to you. After that time, you are responsible for insuring your jewelry for theft or loss, including for the loss of your center stone. This is typically covered by homeowner's or renter's insurance policies.

Do you offer layaway or financing?

Layaway and financing is available through my official website www.rareearthjewelry.com

In addition, if you are a Paypal member, they now offer financing which you can use to make payments for up to six months. Here is more information on the program: www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit

Turnaround Time

Turn around time is included in each item description. Every effort is made to complete orders promptly, while at the same time exercising great care and attention to detail. The time needed to complete your jewelry can vary depending on current workload, holiday season, and a variety of other factors, some of which are beyond our control. Because of the nature of this process, the time frame cannot always be predicted with certainty. We suggest placing your order well in advance of any special event or holiday so you are assured your piece in time.
