About

Modern Jewelry with a Vintage Twist

Affinity Jewelry Designs is home to my deepest passions, brought to life in the form of metal and stone. It is here in my one-of-a-kind shop that I get to showcase those pieces, that in some cases can take weeks to design. This is where my heart lies.

From it's conception in 1998 through today, Affinity has been sold in juried shows throughout Southern California, with wholesale and retail shops along the west coast.

Enjoy,

Welcome to Affinity Jewelry Designs. My passion is to create jewelry that will enlighten, delight and bring you joy. I design each piece with detail, precision and love, each piece being one-of-a-kind.
I double-check each piece before I send it to make sure it is free of any defects to keep such returns to a minimum.

Additional policies and FAQs
Jewelry Care:
Our jewelry are handmade and delicate. Please handle with care, wear them often, and store them away properly in a small plastic bag to prevent the precious metals from tarnishing. Also keep your jewels away from water/soaps/chemicals.

Caring for sterling silver jewelry:
Sterling silver is a precious metal and will naturally tarnish when it is exposed to oxygen. To keep its shine, keep it in an air tight plastic zip bag when you are not wearing it. Or, if it is already tarnishing, simply use a polishing cloth / dip it into a sterling silver cleaning solution. *DO NOT DIP POROUS STONES SUCH AS PEARLS, TURQUOISE OR CORAL*

Caring for vermeil gold and gold plated jewelry:
Our vermeil gold has a base layer of sterling silver with a 18KT gold plating. It is suitable for everyday wear, but like with many fine jewelry, please keep it away from soaps and chemicals to prevent the gold plating from fading.

Caring for gemstones:
Keep your semi-precious gemstone jewelry separate from diamond jewelry. Diamonds are the hardest stones and if they come into contact with softer stones, they may cause scratches and marks.
