About

UNEARTHED (adj.) – something discovered from within the earth

- Inspired by genuine gemstones -

Unearthed Gemstones’ mission is simple: to create timeless pieces of jewelry that are inspired by and complement the natural beauty of genuine gemstones.

Gemstones are a gift of nature. With these treasures as the focal point, Unearthed Gemstones jewelry pieces are simple and elegant and have been designed to really let the gems shine.


- How it all started -

I have always been intrigued by the beauty of gemstones. However, my true passion for them was ignited several years ago when I was given a blue goldstone bracelet as a gift. Although it was sparkly and very pretty, something about it made me wonder whether it was made from real gemstones. That’s when I bought my first little gem kit, which included a loupe (a small magnifying glass) and some other equipment, and I started exploring the world of gemstones.

I couldn’t have predicted all the knowledge about gemstones I would come to learn. After all, aren’t gemstones simply colorful rocks? What started several years ago with that little gem kit has turned into a small studio of jewelry making equipment, a mountain of books on gemology and mineralogy and a decent collection of gemstones themselves!

Not only do I now understand and appreciate the individual properties and values of each gemstone, I can also tell which ones are genuine and fake, as well as which ones have been heat treated or dyed. And by the way, my hunch about that blue goldstone bracelet was right - it isn’t a genuine gemstone after all.

This got me thinking about how easy it is to come across fake or artificial gemstones in the jewelry market today. As there are so many different gems (and so many ways for sellers to pass them off as genuine), it’s no wonder so many people have a hard time knowing what to buy. With this realisation, I decided to put my passion and knowledge to use and started Unearthed Gemstones, a store dedicated to selling jewelry made from only 100% genuine gemstones.


- Jewelry should last a long time -

I’m sure you’ve all seen those famous gemstone jewelry pieces that were made hundreds of years ago and yet, somehow, are still as beautiful as ever. I’m sure you’ve also wondered to yourself why the bracelet you bought last month is already starting to fall apart.

The secret is in the formation of the gemstones themselves. They take years (some up to millions of years) to form deep within the Earth. Due to this long formation time, it makes sense that these treasures possess the beauty, strength and a timeless quality that make them perfect for long lasting, durable jewelry.

As opposed to other quick throw-away fashion jewelry, a piece from Unearthed Gemstones is made of only the highest quality material, including carefully hand selected gemstones, long-lasting elastic and quality sterling silver. Designed to be worn time and time again, I am confident that you will enjoy your Unearthed Gemstone jewelry for years to come.

RETURN PROCESS

Returned jewelry must be in its original condition including the packaging gift box. Any shipping fee incurred during the return process will be the responsibility of the customer. Once we receive your returned jewelry, a refund of the final purchase price (the price of the item(s) excluding any discounts and shipping costs) will be issued through PayPal, or you can request an exchange for another Unearthed Gemstones product with the same final purchase price. Unearthed Gemstones will not be held liable for products lost or damaged in transit for returns.

The first exchange is free. However, any subsequent returns and exchanges will require a $10 restocking fee.

Any shipping fee incurred during the return process will be the responsibility of the customer except the shipping of the jewelry back to you. Unearthed Gemstones will not be held liable for products lost or damaged in transit for returns.

Please contact us with your resizing details to begin the resizing process.



LOST ITEMS

All items (except those sent to the United States by unregistered shipping) are sent by registered/express shipping and have a tracking code. Due to this, it is highly unlikely for an item to become lost. However, in the case that an item's tracking record has not updated after 6 weeks from the date of shipping, you may submit a request for a refund, and, after investigation, the final purchase price and shipping costs will be refunded to you through PayPal.

Items with tracking records that show unsuccessful delivery are considered as undelivered items and not lost.



UNDELIVERED ITEMS

Items with tracking records that show unsuccessful delivery and that are subsequently returned to me are eligible for a full refund of the final purchase price if a request for refund is submitted within 50 days after the shipment of your order.

Please note that unclaimed items are usually kept at the recipient's local post office for about 6 weeks before being returned to me.

Items that are not received due to an incorrect address being provided at the time of purchase are not eligible for a refund.

Items with tracking records that show successful delivery is not eligible for refund and exchange requests.


All refund and exchange requests will be considered on a case by case basis and the decision will be made at the discretion of Unearthed Gemstones.

JEWELRY CARE GUIDE

Sterling Silver
As sterling silver oxidizes naturally, use the silver polishing cloth included with your order to wipe the silver at least once a week. Clean the jewelry piece with water if necessary and dry it with a soft cloth. Avoid contact with soap, chlorine and bleach as they speed up the tarnishing or even damage the sterling silver.


Gemstones
Some gemstones are delicate and fragile. Take your jewelry off before taking part in any physical activities to avoid impacts and scratches. Use water and soft cloth to clean the gems.


Stainless Steel
Clean your stainless steel necklace chain with water and dry with a soft cloth.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing Guide

Bracelets

Choose your WRIST SIZE for bracelets. I will add extra to your wrist size measurement for a comfortable fit.

To measure your wrist, use a tape measure. Wrap the tape around your wrist just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet. You can also use a strip of paper by marking your size with a pen, and then use a ruler to measure the length.


Necklaces

For most women, 16” chain will wrap loosely around the neck. Pendant with 18” chain will sit on the collarbone. A 20” chain will fall a few inches below the collarbone. A 24" chain will falls near the center of the bust. And a 30" chain will sit below the bust.

How does shipping work? What happens in the case of lost mail?

Do you offer gift wrapping?

Your order will come with an Unearthed Gemstones signature gift box. No invoices or receipts are included by default. If there are any special requests, feel free to contact me to discuss in further details.

Multiple items may be packed in one gift box. If you would like each item to have one set of gift box and gift bag, please let me know as soon as possible.

How should I take care of my jewelry?

Each piece of Unearthed Gemstones jewelry is built to last and can be worn for a long time if cared for properly.

Your order will come with a silver polishing cloth and jewelry care instruction. I'll also be happy to answer any questions you have about taking care of the jewelry.

In general, take your jewelry off before showering and swimming. Avoid contact with perfume, soap, chemicals, and chlorine. Also, keep your jewelry away from extreme temperatures, humidity and sunlight. Storing your jewelry in a cool, dry place is also a good practice.

Gemstones can also scratch, chip or break under different situations. Take your jewelry off before taking part in any physical activities that may subject the gemstones to impacts and scratches.
