Herkimer Diamonds Chosen Individually for Quality and Beauty

My grandparents are from Little Falls, New York. Growing up, whenever I visited them I'd hear about the diamond mines nearby. I now know they were talking about Herkimer Diamonds— not true diamonds, but water-clear double-pointed quartz with natural faceting. They also have distinct inclusions, usually of bituminous marble. I love the way they look!

Most jewelers who sell Herkimer Diamonds have to order them and hope for the best in terms of quality. I go directly to the mines when I visit my grandpa, and pick out every stone personally.

Herkimer Diamonds are hard to do justice to in photos. The way the light bounces around inside can't be seen in just one picture. I've tried to get representative images of each stone I sell, and I recommend you take a look.

Not everything here always includes Herkimer Diamonds, but everything in this store is shiny and luxurious. If you're looking for something more playful, check out my other store at

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

If there is something you want that I don't explicitly offer yet, but that seems like something I could make given what else you see in the shop, send me a message and we'll work it out!

Gift wrapping and packaging

All Marble Road products come in predetermined packaging designed to keep the jewelry safe in transit and look elegant upon arrival. I cannot change the packaging as part of a custom order request.

For gift orders I can include a simple "To/From" note, but I do not write any custom notes beyond that.
