This pendant is a gorgeous work of art! The attention to detail and the design is superb and I absolutely love the Red Jasper. I will definitely be making more purchases from this shop in the future.

About

Unique stone jewelry inspired by mother nature, set in one-of-a-kind handmade sterling silver settings.

Village Silversmith is a family owned business that started in the historic seaside village of Rockport, MA. The life long interest of minerals, fossils, stone cutting, and silversmithing ran through the Bajoras family and lead to the opening of their first retail shop on the North Shore.

Within fifteen years of opening their doors in Rockport, Village Silversmith has opened six additional locations. Now, Village Silversmith has another Rockport store location, equipped with workshop, a location on Main Street in Gloucester, Massachusetts, our largest store at the Northshore Mall in Peabody, Massachusetts, our seasonal store right on the boulevard in Hampton Beach, NH, a dream location in the historical port, Portsmouth, NH, and our newest location in Newburyport, MA. Each one of our retail locations has varying specialties and their own distinct feel created by our store design and knowledgeable staff.

Village Silversmith also sells at over twenty trade shows and festivals a year. We provide a large wholesale and retail inventory with an incomparable selection of our famous quality stone cabochons and beads.

Our specialty at Village Silversmith is our enormous collection of handmade stone jewelry set in sterling silver. We believe in celebrating the unique, natural beauty of the earth’s most incredible stones, and mounting them in fine, one-of-a-kind handmade settings for our customers to wear and enjoy for many years.

We use the highest quality colored hard stones, including rarities such as unusual agates and jaspers, all selected for their exceptional patterns and colors. We offer extensive selections of fossilized stones (such as sand dollars, coral, and dinosaur bone), Russian stones (such as deep red eudialite, shimmering purple charoite, and chatoyant greens of seraphinite), and a beautiful array of multi-colored moonstones. We have also become known for our work with traditional stones such as amber, turquoise, malachite, and lapis lazuli.

We hope you enjoy browsing through the hundreds of beautiful pieces on Etsy, and ask you to feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 12, 2016
Village Silversmith prides itself on its unique and hand-crafted jewelry. This is why anything VS makes, or the artisans we represent, is guaranteed against defects in materials or craftsmanship. Should an item fail at any time due to a defect in its construction or metal, we will repair or replace it at no charge. If it cannot be repaired or replaced, store credit may be given. The amount of this credit is chosen on a case-by-case basis.

Although well-made jewelry can last for years without incident, precious metals do abrade over time. Our guarantee does not protect against excessive wear, abuse or loss. If an item requires repair due to excessive wear or damages caused by the customer, a repair fee will be charged. Repair costs are determined on a case-by-case basis by one of our silversmiths; and before anything is repaired, the customer will be made aware of the repair cost. It will then be up to the customer to accept the fee and allow the item to be fixed.

Jewelry is not maintenance-free. If able, we strongly encourage you to bring in your jewelry once a year for a complimentary cleaning and inspection. At that time, we can assess the condition of your jewelry and recommend any repairs before further damage or loss occurs. At your time of purchase, all items will be inspected to ensure perfect quality.

After the re-sizing, the appearance band of the ring may alter slightly. To size the ring, it will take our silversmith approximately 7-14 business days. After completion, please allow 3-5 days for shipping.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each order is placed in an anti-tarnish pouch and a silver foil box with our logo on it. The box will have a silver elastic bow holding it shut. We have complimentary gift wrapping in addition to this available.

If you are interested in the gift wrap too just make a note on your order and we would be happy to add it!

Care instructions

We recommend using a silver cream or anti-tarnish polish to remove oxidation from silver. The brand that we have found to be one of the best is Wright’s. For traveling or quick polishing we recommend a silver polishing cloth. The brand we like best is Sunshine Polishing Cloths.

The majority of stones will not be harmed by Wright’s silver cream because it is mild. However, one should avoid prolonged exposure of any organic stones to harsh chemicals. Also, stones should not be left to prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.

The following organic stones should be cleaned with a mild soap and water: Turquoise, Coral, Pearls, & Amber.

All metals should be kept away from chlorine and bleach; this includes swimming pools.
