Artful Fine Jewelry for the Collector in You

Corey Egan jewelry is forged, designed, sculpted, and set in Berkeley, California.

PURPOSE | Expressive Designs to Celebrate Your Individuality
Corey Egan Jewelry, my namesake line, is a collection of fine sterling silver, gold, and gemstone pieces filled with personality. I design my jewelry to feel cheerful and elegant, but ultimately, I want it to feel like a reflection of you. My hope is that you’ll assign personal meaning to the pieces you choose. They should become shiny representations of the experiences, memories, accomplishments, and dreams that make you who you are.


PROCESS | Jewelry-Making Is an Art, Which Makes You a Collector
My design process starts with inspiration from lights, shadows, textures, and geometric silhouettes. Sitting at my workbench, I explore organic shapes and texture-driven techniques to enhance the natural beauty of each gemstone. My jewelry-making methods include:

The sculptural process of lost wax casting.
The intentional lines of hand engraving.
The thoughtful construction of fabrication.

I incorporate these personal marks to give my collectors a sense of connection to me and the methodical artistic process behind the crafting of their piece.


BELIEFS | Fine Jewelry Should Start a Conversation
Corey Egan is rooted in a few key beliefs, which I think many of my collectors share:

No. 1 The things we own and consume should be thoughtful and purposeful.
No. 2 Individuality should be cherished and celebrated.
No. 3 Small details matter; we can leave a mark on the world with the little choices we make.

It’s from this perspective that I choose to create wearable works of art imbued with intentional details and personal meaning. My goal is for you to feel empowered when you wear the pieces that speak to you. And if you get a few compliments along the way, that’s simply a bonus.


SUSTAINABILITY | Consciously Making One Good Decision at a Time
Responsible mining practices for gems and precious metals are essential to running a sustainable jewelry business. That’s why I design with recycled (post-consumer) precious metals and antique diamonds. For other gemstones, I ethically source whenever possible.

Corey Egan Is a Certified California Green Business
Beyond materials, I make sustainable, impactful choices for everything my studio uses and consumes. From recycling precious metal scraps to selecting non-toxic cleaning products, each and every decision is guided by my goal to lessen the jewelry industry’s negative impact on the environment.

The customer is responsible for all shipping charges associated with resizing.

Customizations I will accommodate include:

• vary the number or shape of gemstones
• add engraving
• add diamond(s) to the band

I stand behind the craftsmanship of our work and therefore will happily perform any repairs within 2 years of purchase that are the result of normal wear and tear.

Care instructions

To preserve the luster and lifespan of your jewelry please treat it like the unique treasure it is. Follow these rules of thumb to enjoy your jewelry for years to come.

REMOVE YOUR JEWELRY
• Before strenuous or impactful activities such as gardening, exercise, or housework
• When entering a chlorinated pool or hot tub
• When using bleach or household chemicals
• When bathing or washing hands to avoid soapy buildup

STORE YOUR JEWELRY
• In separate pouches so hard gemstones (such as diamonds) do not scratch neighboring pieces
• Silver jewelry should be stored in an airtight, ziplock bag to prevent the development of tarnish

Please contact me if the piece is in need of cleaning, refinishing or if you suspect a stone is loose.
