salonpetite's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Salon Petite, a sparkly new Etsy store showcasing rare and precious gemstones set in sterling silver and gold. I hope you enjoy your visit here :)

Me? My name's Graham. I'm a gemstone collector and jewelry designer. My business here is all about buying quality, authentic gems at hard-bartered prices and passing those savings on to my customers.

I test all the gems I import by running refractive index, polariscopic, UV identification, and light filter analyses to assure their authenticity ... bottom line : you can rest assured that you're buying GENUINE gems when you shop here.

I mainly design settings in fine and sterling silver, occasionally full karat gold and gold fill. I never use silver 'fill', 'plate' or 'gold tone' metals though - you'll find only nickel free, non-allergenic solid precious metals here at Salon Petite, guaranteed!

Stylewise I like French and American Art Deco in general and US Art Deco designer Miriam Haskell in particular. I'm also influenced by nature, my petite wife, and my three sparkling daughters. Unsurprisingly my style leans to the sort of designs they favour, typically, pieces that are delicate, understated, luxurious, and sparkling!

The fashionable gems at the moment seem to be rubies, apatite, Turkish diaspore (sometimes called 'Zultanite'), rose de france, pale emeralds (both pink and green), Oro Verde citrine, and pink tourmaline. I have a nice collection of these in the store if you're interested.

I do hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as I've enjoyed making it.

Thanks for visiting!
