About

GemAndIJewellery reflects a transition back to tradition.

A Gemologist and a true Gemini twin, I am an explorer and hand harvester of rare, high grade gemstones and minerals.
Unique gemstones are handset into 'other worldly' designs, and each piece of jewellery is handcrafted and very detail oriented, this is a statement to age old practices that have been passed down throughout the history of adornment.

Growing up at my grandparent's antique shop, I was introduced to classic, art deco and many historic antique pieces. I was visually hooked on these fascinating and exotic items which were still telling their stories, and very much stood out to me.
I was always the kid at school wearing antique jewellery, unusual gemstones and big gaudy rings.
Even more so, I loved looking at them in different lights, examining them and telling people about where they came from...
So I decided to study Jewellery History and Design, and then later received my Gemmology diploma at the Canadian Institute of Gemmology in 2002.

Working at high end Crystal and Mineral Shops, Jewellery Stores, Bead Stores and various Gem Suppliers and Dealers from 1999 to 2005 had given me the opportunity to grow 'into my own' in this wondrous Mineral and Gem Kingdom.
I learned about true Gemstone qualities, grades, identifying techniques, practices and prices on offer in the massive marketplace at such a young age.
It came very easily to me as I am a very visual person and I love social interaction.

During this time I never really saw any Jewellery, or any quality pieces that would absolutely blow me away!? There was always that 'nice stone' with that horrible setting or vice versa...
So at this time I decided that I would start designing with my own ideas; Handpicking AND High Grading each and every Gemstone and creating my own pieces in the process.
I wanted to create exceptional pieces with good pricing, and a 'realistic' price tag to match (this can be uncanny on this world wide web).

Everything just came together really nicely from this passion of mine, and I just keep going with it, 18 years later...
I couldn't imagine my life without being surrounded by these amazing gifts of nature, it's what I know, and what I love to learn more of in this life.

Being a forever adventurous and enquiring mind (GEMINI), I love travelling extensively around the world to source out new, and 'best of the best' Gemstones and new ideas.
I feel truly inspired by colourful cultures and their works of art + embellishments.
I really cannot get enough of it. Culture in this sense is dying on many levels, so this is what really moves me and excites me!

Here are some of my favourite things, I really hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Thanks & Much Love
Natalie

    A natural born Gemini twin (but of course!), a Gemmologist, a curious traveller, and with my love for all things stunningly beautiful....I have been on a journey for the last 17 years fuelled by my passion for culture, crystals, gemstones and jewellery. I have a love for dusty side street stalls, barren back alleyways & monstrous artisan markets. A hunter and a hand harvester of exquisite high grade gemstones, I feel very connected to these roots of nature’s finest imprint and to the divinity of raw and natural beauty.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

The sizes marked for my rings is the size available, and I will not be resizing for customers with other sizing requirements, I hope you understand.
Take a look at my wonderful 'Ancient Spirals Adjustable Ring' and also enquire with me on options to size your own ring and make it work for you. Eg: Sizing with a 'Ring Mandrel', sawing and filing it to make your own adjustable ring, or bringing it to your local silversmith/goldsmith to have it sized are a few options.

Am I guaranteed my package will arrive in time if I opt to send it without a tracking number?

GemAndIJewellery has NEVER had a problem with packages not arriving.

The estimated shipping times listed are an estimate via Canada Post based on how long they think it may take to arrive to your destination;

*GemAndIJewellery will not be held responsible for packages sent without a tracking # that are either lost or stolen in the mail.
We recommend a tracking # for added security*

GemAndIJewellery has no guarantee how many exact days customs will take to process your package.

*In this case, if you need your item on a specific date, we strongly suggest you opt for the shipping option with a tracking #
Please take this into account before writing a negative review or sending constant emails*
We will happily work with you where we can!

How long will you take to process and send out my purchase?

GemAndIJewellery likes to send out parcels right away, and we will usually do this in 1-2 business days only.
In some special cases it may take up to 3 or more days if during a holiday etc.
Thanks for being so great and patient!

Do all 'shipping quotes' come with a tracking number?

No. The "Fixed Shipping Costs" section is for Standard Shipping only, which does not automatically include a tracking # outside of Canada.

The "Shipping Upgrades" section is for customers who want to purchase the Upgrade for a tracking # to track their package.
*This is sometimes only $4 - extra for this Upgrade, please check my Upgrades to see the fee.

*In Canada, Canada Post charges more money for a trackable package leaving the country. It does not automatically come with one here in Canada, unfortunately.

Also, if you need MORE than the $100 Insurance included on your "tracked item", let me know the extra you want to add on*

If you have anymore questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thanks!

Earrings and the Price Breakdown:

To put into perspective the price of a PAIR of Earrings:
Earrings are like x2 Pendants for each of your beautiful Ears.
They are double the Gemstones and carat weight, double the Sterling Silver, or Gold, and double the labour to make 2 of them.
*If you take the total price of a pair of Earrings and divide it into two, you will come up with a pretty fair $ priced Pendant...usually even a better deal since there are x2!

Hope this puts things into perspective when pricing out and wanting to purchase a new pair of Earrings.
Enjoy!
You deserve it.
