About

LoveGem Studio was inspired by a love story!

I’ve always been passionate about arts and crafts, including beaded jewelry and purses. It wasn’t until after my boyfriend proposed (for my birthday!) that I learned about metalsmithing. We were discussing designs for our wedding bands when he asked if I would be interested in designing them. He said that if the band was something he would wear for the rest of his life, he would like for it to be as special as possible. This meant a lot, considering he is not the kind of person that wears any jewelry, not even a watch! Needless to say, I was thrilled about the his request, yet felt quite intimidated. Without any background in metal-smithing, I soon realized that I was going to need help getting through with this project. My fiancé sponsored me to attend a metalsmithing class, and thus the journey began.

We went through MANY designs and finally settled for one we both agreed on, and we both were delighted by it. This experience showed me how stimulating the journey and discovery process of arriving to the end product could be. With this newly discovered drive, to design meaningful jewelry for others, is how LoveGem Studtio started.

My background is in energy efficiency and conservation, so you can probably imagine that green and sustainable business practices are important to me. We use eco-friendly sustainable materials wherever possible, including recycled metals from reputable U.S. based suppliers and ethically mined Gems and Diamonds.

We design and hand-make each package with recycled/renewable materials. Also, we PLANT A TREE for every piece of jewelry you buy.

Additional policies and FAQs
♥ {What Is Oxidized Silver? How Is It Make?}
Our oxidized silver is made of 925 sterling silver. We use liver-of-sulfur as the oxidized solution. During the oxidization process, silver is oxidized causing a darkening of the jewelry surface. After the process, we neutralize the liver-of-sulfur bath becoming a fertilizer that can boost our plants in the garden.

After the jewelry is oxidized, we apply a layer of micro coating on the jewelry surface for extra protection.

♥ {I ordered my ring with a wrong size. Can you adjust the ring size for me?}
Please make sure to have the correct ring size measurement before your order. However, we totally understand that it's hard to guess the right size when the ring will be given as a surprise gift. If that happens, we can adjust the ring size at a small fee. The starting cost is $50 per silver ring and $75 per gold ring. Additional cost may include material charge. The item will be re-oxidized if it's an oxidized ring.

♥ {Can I Send you My Stones for Custom Order?}
We do apologize that due to liability, currently we do not fabricate jewelry with stones supplied by customers.

♥ {Jewelry Care Tips}
We hope you enjoy your jewelry and please take good care of them by following our recommended jewelry care tips below:

•Always remove your rings and fine jewelry before using any product that contains bleach.
•Never use toothpaste or other abrasives to clean metal or stones.
•Do not wear jewelry during bath, shower or hair washing.
•Store each piece of jewelry separately to prevent rubbing.
•Put jewelry on last, after usage of hairsprays, lotions, make-up, etc.
•Store your jewelry in a cool, dry place. Do not store jewelry in the bathroom.

♥ {How To Take Care of Oxidized Silver Jewelry}
The oxidation process is essentially a chemical reaction. It creates a thin oxidation layer at the surface of the ring. Since it is a chemical reaction, the oxidized layer can be very sensitive when interacting with other “chemicals” such as bleach, nail polish, lotion, makeup material, or many other things. With proper care to follow the jewelry care tips described above, the oxidation on the rings will last for a pretty long time.

Due to natural wear and fading over time, each piece of oxidized jewelry will develop it’s own unique character and makes it truly one-of-a-kind. Note that the oxidation comes off quickly if it’s frequently washed with soap, or in contact with other “chemicals” such as bleach, nail polish, lotion, makeup material, etc.

The oxidized finish can also be restored after some time which can be accomplished with a simple and safe sulfur bath. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on the touch-up process.
