About

Fine hand hammered silver and gold jewelry, pearls knotted on silk and selected gemstones

Welcome to our gem and jewelry shop!! We are a small, family-run jewelry operation at your service! Our location in Thailand near Burma gives us great gemstone resources to use in hand crafted jewelry made the old fashioned way from silver and gold. We are also involved in precision gemstone cutting. Our familiarity with the gem markets all over Thailand allows us the pleasure of guiding buyers when they come here to shop for stones as well.
In our line of unique jewelry we use no castings, no machine made parts and no glue. Each piece is built with heirloom quality, truly handmade creations designed to last. When we create alloys for your hand hammered jewelry we are careful to use only pure metals that contain no base metal thus insuring a much smaller chance of any allergic reaction.
You may custom order jewelry at the same prices as my in-stock pieces. Choose your own style of jewelry from my online catalog with over 500 LEE designs. The link is: https://selectioncatalogleesjewelry.shutterfly.com/26. The queue to create a custom piece of jewelry is usually 20-60 days and begins when you purchase an Etsy listing that we will make just for you based on our conversations.
Being gemologist and working closely with precision gem cutters allows us the unique opportunity to offer high quality gems for low prices. We guarantee that all our gems are the variety that we state. The queue for custom cut gemstones is around 30 days and we will make you a personal listing to get it started at your request.
My wife knots cultured pearls on real silk and sells them here too. Her queue on a custom order is around 14 days and we are also happy to make you a special listing to get your bracelet or necklace started.
Please check out our current selection of over one thousand items to see if we have any pieces ready for you right now. Every item is ready to buy and ready to ship, no auctions, no waiting, no stress!
Feel free to use our layaway plan on any item to help your budget with this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/152396963/lay-away-any-item-for-three-months-with?ref=shop_home_active_1&ga_search_query=lay
Have fun shopping and be sure to let us know whenever we may help you. My email is leesgems [!at] ymail.com.
Best regards, Lee
