WHAT IS THE RAW STONE REVOLUTION?
>> RAW STONES will be imperfect & vary in cut, saturation and overall look
making them truly one of a kind in every piece
>> NEVER heated or chemically treated
>> ETHICALLY sourced | SINGLE origin
>> ANTI-BORING pieces w character | never wear mass-produced again!
>> TRUE coloration & RARE authenticity
>> SIMPLY enjoy the natural beauty of freshly mined rare stones set in solid,
never coated metals

MY MISSION
I specifically source raw stones only from non-conflict areas around the world. I prefer to hand cut my stones and crystals to ensure every pair of earrings is complimentary, bobbies are bold and can be worn either together or individually and that all of my rings are visually stunning while remaining emboldened by their setting. I believe in keeping my negative footprint to an absolute minimum and go the extra lengths to use all recycled packaging materials and gift wrapping papers.

On Etsy since 2018

earth-conscious, female forward company handmaking ethically sound raw stone accessories. add a piece of rare, deep earth to your jewelry wardrobe.

r a w _ o p a l ><>< my geo jewelry & accessories are an ode to the earth and all of it's uncovered treasures. intensity, chaos and bold changes have occurred for millions and in some cases billions of years to form the minerals we mine from our earths' crust. each stone is intrinsically unique and i have the honor to split open and hand cut every piece. i take on great lengths of research to source my stone specimens from no-conflict mines around the world, single origin sellers, and certified safe mines too. my metalsmith friends are essential to Raw Opal, along with our other collaborative small business friends. R|O is very careful to work with single origin suppliers, artisinal and small batch businesses. Nothing comes through our studio unless it was crafted or curated with true dedication and artisanal skill. i find it so important to support small business and individual talent, whilst keeping my business a high morality, low waste, eco-aware operation. our raw stone pieces are both one of a kind and also made to order, using genuine and rare raw stones and true dedication. i want you to feel just as good for wearing my raw stone pieces as i do making them.

nothing would be possible without the incredible work, passion and dedication of the R|O staff. please take a moment to read about us & fully appreciate how amazing our woman-run business is!

Raw Opal is my true passion and every single piece is given undivided attention to visual appeal and quality. I wrap every pair like a gift, however with minimal waste. My hope is to leave a lesser footprint on our beautiful planet.

    Fatima is a lovely partner who cares for the environment. Her brass is second to none and allows Raw Opal to create warm and sophisticated designs.

  • Supply Diva

    Laura & ladies of Supply Diva are incredible metalsmiths, and also help educate and uplift other women in business. They are a small, single origin workshop that allow my designs to be realized. My solid brass bangles would be just hand-cut raw stone without these talented, philanthropic smiths.
