The Tale of Two Turtles

We are two brothers, Tim and Stephen Challener, who are passionate about gems and jewelry. Gem and mineral collection has been a lifelong obsession--some of our earliest memories are of vacations spent out in fields picking through rocks for specimens.
We have a second store over at where we sell loose gems, facet rough, cabbing slabs and more!

Frequently asked questions

Is there any way to get a discount on shipping?

Yes! we have free shipping on all orders over $35 within the USA. For international orders over $100, just use the code FREESHIPPING100 at checkout.

Can I get a chain or a cord with my pendant?

Yes! We have a shop selection dedicated to chains and leather cords, in a couple different lengths.

Can I reserve an item?

Yes! Just send us a message through etsy, and we'll change the title to mark it as reserved. By default we'll reserve it for two weeks - if you need more time please ask us and we can extend it.

Why does shipping take longer internationally?

Due to current crisis, everyone in the US is facing issues with the USPS and with international shipping. Etsy rolled out their new 'Etsy global shipping program' for all international orders recently, which unfortunately has not helped matters. According to Etsy, international orders are seeing delays of 30-60 days sitewide.
