Sterling silver and gold gemstone jewelry that I handcraft in my Austin, Texas studio.
Just lovely and a good place to shop as well. Thank you
From Paris to Texas
Years ago while traveling Europe, I bought a keepsake - a gold necklace from a collection at the Louvre in Paris. I also brought back jewelry from Barcelona and Venice from that trip, and thus began a deep infatuation with things that sparkle.
Over time I learned to create jewelry, and my love of creation fueled the beginning of my business. As I've learned new techniques I've used them to drive new creations - I enjoy every minute of the creative process. Working with beautiful gems, gleaming metals and all the bits and pieces that go into a creation, I can lose myself for hours.
Color, sparkle, the tactile feel of a hammer in my hand or chain through my fingers - all these sensations thrill me when I sit down at my crafting bench. Continuing to develop my art is a joy, and when customers are kind enough to share their happiness with my work, it's all worthwhile.

Owner, Designer, Creator, Photographer And Diva
I've built my craft and my business to reflect the designs I love - timeless, elegant jewelry with gemstones and fine metals. It's not about mass-production, it's about uniqueness and the creation of design to be treasured.
It's important to me that you love your DivaKami design. Each piece is handmade, and occasionally a piece will need repair. I promise free repairs on any item that's suffered from too much "love", as long as it's within my ability to fix. Just contact me at diva_k17 [!at] hotmail.com and I can tell you what can be done!
Finally, I'm always open to custom requests and happy to work on making a piece fit for you. Just convo or email me!
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Tax is charged for Texas state residents.
For custom orders over $20, I request a 50% up-front payment that can be handled via PayPal. This amount is fully refundable prior to shipment if for any reason you are not happy with the piece created. Upon request for a custom piece, I will post a listing valued at 50% of the total item cost. Once that 50% payment is received, I will create the item and email you photos. If you like what you see, I will create a second posting to cover the remaining 50% and shipping fees. Once that payment is received, the item will be shipped to you. Got any questions? Email me at diva_k17 [!at] hotmail.com or convo me and we can discuss them!
In most cases, items are shipped within 24 hours of receipt of payment via PayPal. If I am traveling or unable to ship your item, I will notify you and you may cancel the purchase if you like, or I will ship as soon as possible.
Items are not insured. I am not responsible for any loss or damage on the part of the lovely Postal Service. If you would like faster shipping, shipping/delivery confirmation or insurance on a package, please notify me in the notes of your purchases.
FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS: I am not responsible for any non-U.S. postal service errors, and cannot guarantee delivery in your country. Nor will I list an item as a "gift" on customs declarations, since this can leave me liable for prosecution. The purchaser is responsible for all customs, duties and tariffs in their own country.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because I ship USPS, and take care in shipping, I'm not responsible for loss or damage. However, if you'd like to pay for insurance, convo me and we can add that price - then if the package is lost or damaged, I'll refund the full cost. IF I can verify that the item is lost in shipping, I will refund the item cost ONLY, not shipping. However, in order to protect my business, this refund is at my own discretion. International buyers - I am not liable for any packages once they leave the U.S. If you have any concerns about the delivery of your package, contact me and we can arrange insurance. I will not replace or refund the cost of items not delivered internationally.
Additional policies and FAQs
Many of the items I offer are one-of-a-kind pieces made from handmade or limited availability materials. However, if you love something that's already sold, let me know and there's always a possibility I can make something similar.
Metal allergies? Let me know!! I have clear quartz toggle clasps that can be used with silk cord to re-string necklaces in some cases, for only $5 more.
