About

WE ARE ROCK HOUNDS & GEM GEEKS!

We are a U.S. couple that is living and working overseas. We have been sellers on Etsy since 2010. In that time, we have moved 3 times - from New York City, to Bangkok, to Singapore. All the while, we've maintained an awesome set of customers who've come along with us on our rock hounding adventures ...

So, first and foremost, we are ROCK HOUNDS and GEM GEEKS!!

One of us is a Graduate Gemologist and the other a bench jeweler / stone cutter.
Our fascination with stones have taken us all over the world.

We love to name obscure gems going down the alphabet while sitting around or waiting for a bus. We also make travel plans around finding gemstones - we've been to Brazil, Myanmar, Mexico, Indonesia (and lots more!) hoping to find unique material. One day, we would love to go to Madagascar!

When we lived in NYC, we used to take our hammers and chisels, go down the banks of the Hudson River and 'mine' for garnets.

We feel a bit like pirates with a booty of treasure at this point. Please enjoy what we've found! xoxo

If you're wondering how we do what we do:

We buy rough material directly from miners and small-scale traders. This means we know the people we buy from well; we sit with them, visit their homes, and hand select all the rough we buy. This is how we maintain a level of quality you cannot find from resellers. We look at each piece of rough and decide how best to cut it and release its color and unique features - that is why our gems are unique and different from the rest. And this is how we bring you the best quality; we will cut off parts of the rough that detract from the gems before faceting and polishing (a commercial cutting factory will not do this because it means losing $ on the material.) We hope you see the value in what we do and support us by shopping with us :)

Custom cutting & wholesale welcome! Convo us.
