Modern, minimal, and always handmade jewelry by Mineral Rare

We have always had a love for fine jewelry, natural stones, and semiprecious/precious gemstones. After many rockhounding adventures the rocks started to pile up. We decided to buy lapidary tools to cut and polish the rocks. Magda is originally from Poland and has a tradition of jewelry making in the family. Taking the polished stones and making beautiful jewelry was a natural progression. Whether it's a simple ring or a more complex pendant , each piece is made by Magda and Darren, one step at a time, in our workshop.

Our design process starts with choosing stone or metal to work with. Our style tends to be more minimal, we like the individual elements to shine through. Sometimes the design starts with a passing thought or an example in our immediate surroundings . We usually borrow from nature, a mountain scape, waves crashing, or maybe even tree branches. We take those images and create simple, minimal, and modern jewelry.

Our silversmithing process is the same used for many years by experienced artisans. It involves many intricate steps of shaping, soldering, filing, buffing, and polishing. We offer reproduced designs unique to our shop and many OOAK (One Of A Kind) items.

    Born and raised in Poland. Nature and rockhounding has been with me for many years. Nature brings me at peace, and finding new rocks brings me joy. To me Mineral Rare is where passion meets purpose.

    Web developer and graphic designer by trade, rocks and nature are my escape. I have been a rockhound since youth growing up in Upstate NY digging for Herkimers. For me lapidary is about the discovery, finding the beauty in each stone and exposing it.
