Elizabeth Lydon Studio

We are Elizabeth & Victoria, two sisters from the San Francisco Bay Area who grew up gathering shells on Pacific Ocean beaches and searching for beautiful stones at Sierra Mountain lakes. After years of work in fine jewelry, gemology, and interior design (Elizabeth), and graphic design and photography (Victoria), we have joined together to follow our true calling – creating jewelry crafted from the beauty of the natural world.

For us, creating jewelry is a world of discovery, imagination, and creativity, sparked by our passion for the beauty of minerals, gems, jewelry, and fashion. Our inspiration comes from the natural world of mountain light and ocean shores, of lakes and streams, of rocks and sand, the sky, the stars, and the gems of the earth.

Awash in the thrill of the hunt, we search for the most beautiful and rare rocks, minerals, semi-precious and precious gemstones from far away lands. At the same time, we look for the romantic origins of our discoveries, as each of our exquisite, crafted pieces has a story to tell: from ocean-blue Aquamarine nuggets from Brazil, raw Sapphires sifted from Tanzania’s Umba River Valley, bright Bumblebee Jasper formed in Indonesian volcanoes, to Aragonite from the desert sands of Morocco.

We have forged long-standing relationships with trustworthy suppliers from remote corners of the world, and have woven a circle of knowledgeable industry experts and ethical sources. We follow ethical workplace practices, were early members of Ethical Metalsmiths, and make every effort to use recyclable and sustainable materials whenever possible.

The great forces of the earth shape the elements and components of our jewelry, and it is our great privilege to craft pieces to best catch the light, enhance your fashions, and capture the beauty of these real minerals, stones, and gems, in a way that can be worn and enjoyed every day.
