betsy & iya: Portland jewelry design and flagship retail shop+studio.

betsy & iya started in 2008 in a coffeeshop with a notebook, a bright red pencil, and nothing to lose. Among scribbles and coffee stains, the words “jewelry making” appeared in that notebook.

Betsy wrote it down, thought about it for a while, and then she made some jewelry. And it worked, so she did it some more.

Today, we’re more than just jewelry. We’re more than this website. We’re a brick and mortar shop snuggled down in our home of Portland, OR. It is here that we design and make it all. And it is here that we carry the work of other independent artists and designers from around the country–work we’ve encountered in our travels, work that speaks to us, that we love.

We’re betsy & iya. We are constantly learning, building, growing. We’re goofballs who can still work 80+ hour weeks, but know when to take a deep breath. Design is important to us, but so are quiet Sunday mornings, roller coasters, and new music. We’d love to live in a house from Dwell magazine, but we don’t. And if we did, you might find a stray sock in the hallway or a *temporary* stack of dishes in the sink. We’re people, just like you. We love what we do. And we put ourselves into our designs, into our business, into how we say hi when you walk through our door.

You’re the woman who laughs a little too loud in the fancy restaurant, the one who leaves love notes on napkins, who talks her way out of speeding tickets, and watches strangers kiss. you shirk responsibility, stay up too late, and sleep in your socks. you’re the one they wonder about in the office, the one who knows the closest martini bar, the best used bookstore, and how to say “you ain’t seen nothing yet” in seven languages. and if you’re not… don’t you kind of want to be?

When you shop betsy & iya, we hope you see the care in every bend of the wire, in every hammer stroke, in every blast of the torch. We hope you see deliberation and perpendicularity. We hope you love the other artists’ and designers’ products we carry just as much as we do. We hope you feel amazing and gush confidence. And then we hope someone does something silly and that we all crack up for a while.

At betsy & iya, we are vibrant. We steal clothes from our moms (don’t worry, they know). We love our home, Portland. We’re inspired by color, asymmetry, contrast, balance. We drink coffee all day long. We’re imperfect; we’re polite; we’re sassy. And we want you to have a good time when you hang out with us, whether it’s online, or in our brick & mortar shop. So, take a look around. We’re really glad you’re here.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: How do I clean my Fine Jewelry?
A: For gold rings with a matte finish use a very soft 100% cotton cloth and/or a soft toothbrush with warm water and a gentle soap.

For gold rings with a polished finish use a polishing cloth to brighten/shine up your gold.

General Care: To clean gold and around the stones, let your piece soak in warm water and gentle soap for at least 15 minutes, then use a soft 100% cotton cloth and/or a soft toothbrush to gently wipe and clean gold and around stones. We stand by our work and have taken great care to make a solid, long-lasting beautiful piece of jewelry. That said, jewelry is not indestructible and extra care should be taken to ensure that your cherished piece remains in great condition for years to come. Stones and metal can become loose, chip, or crack through prolonged heat/cold exposure, contact with harsh chemicals, certain perfumes/lotions, chlorine, and rubbing or knocking up against another hard surface including other jewelry, dirt, sand, etc. (e.g. don't wear it while sledding, gardening, playing at the beach, or in the hot tub...); basically, when in doubt, remove your jewelry.

Q: You don't offer my ring size on your website. Can you make a ring at a different size?
A: Yes! We can easily accommodate quarter sizes between the posted size ranges for Fine Jewelry. Quarter sizes are offered for the same price as the half-size just below the requested quarter size. Requests for sizes larger or smaller than posted sizes may be possible and may require a surcharge for material, labor, and/or redesign. Either way, please contact us for more information.

Q: I need my ring re-sized. Can you help?
A: Yes! We are happy to resize jewelry we made. Included within one month of purchase of betsy & iya fine jewelry or presentation of our jewelry to its recipient (whichever is later) is one complimentary resizing. Additional resizing or resizing done after this time period is done for a fee.

Most fine jewelers, including us, can size your finger for free prior to purchase. While every care is taken to mitigate negative effects, the process of resizing may involve cutting, soldering, and/or stretching, which places inherent stress on your ring, and any stones set within it. Because of this, if it's possible to do so, buying the correct size to begin with is best. Don't let this worry you, though.

We know sometimes it's impossible to determine someone else's finger size without ruining a surprise (*wink, wink*). In these cases, just try to get as close as possible (google figure out a ring size secretly for some helpful tips). After resizing, we thoroughly inspect all rings before returning them to you and we stand behind our resizing. Resizing performed by us will have no effect on the warranty the piece originally came with unless otherwise stated to you in writing. Online ring sizing tools provide approximate sizes only, and should not be relied upon for highly accurate sizing. Please contact us for assistance with any sizing questions.

We do not work on other designers' jewelry, including repairs or resizing, but we can refer you to a few jewelers in Portland we trust to do this type of work. Our complimentary resizing does not affect the duration of our return window, but resized rings will be subject to a restocking fee in the unlikely event they are returned after resizing.

Q: What is your warranty on Fine Jewelry?
A: We stand behind our jewelry and expect that with proper care, your betsy & iya Fine Jewelry will last for years to come. We offer a non-transferable one-year warranty on workmanship defects in our fine jewelry. Normal wear and tear (micro-abrasions, cleaning, polishing, stone tightening, etc.) is covered by this warranty, but repairs of heavy wear and tear (marring, deep scuffs or scratches, bent metal, etc.) are not covered by this warranty, and a fee may be assessed for this type of repair work. We cannot warrant work performed by other jewelers (including resizing), and any such work will void our warranty. Jewelry is not indestructible and will stay beautiful longer by adhering to our General Care tips above in this section, as well as Jewelry Materials, Care, and Maintenance tips.

Q: I've worn my ring every day since I got it! Now a stone is loose, what do I do?
A: Don’t worry; we can help! But do stop wearing the ring immediately and contact us. We will take a look at the piece and tighten any stones that may have become loose. Outside of our warranty period or in cases of heavy wear and tear, there may be an associated repair charge after we can assess the piece and determine what needs to happen to bring it back to its original state.

Q: Can I change the type of gold or a stone of a collection piece?
A: We can customize the pieces to a certain extent. Please contact us to inquire about the possibilities. If you’re looking for a complete custom experience–exciting!–head over to our Custom Jewelry Design page for more details and to set up a meeting.

Q: Do you ship fine jewelry fully insured?
A: Yes.

Q: Are your diamonds conflict-free?
A: Our diamonds are conflict-free and only sourced from suppliers who adhere to The Kimberly Process.

Q: Are your materials ethically sourced?
A: Yes! We use recycled metal whenever possible and materials that come from only honest, ethical, and reputable sources.

Q: How soon can your rings be delivered?
A: In most cases, your ring will be made to order. Please allow up to 2-3 weeks for production, plus additional shipping time (varies by carrier and service). If you need your ring sooner, please contact us.

Q: Where are your rings made?
A: Every aspect of our rings is handmade in our Portland, Oregon production studio from design sketches to stone setting and final finish.

Q: Where can I see/touch/try on your wedding & engagement rings?
A: You can find them at our brick & mortar at 2403 NW Thurman Street, Portland, OR 97210. If you think you might need a little more time with the rings, please contact us to schedule a private viewing.

Q: Do you do custom wedding and engagement rings?
A: YES! Yes yes yes! Learn more about our custom jewelry design process. More info. here:

Mostly, we want you all to love your new handmade jewelry; if you're not satisfied, we definitely want to change that! Please don't hesitate to contact us.
