Welcome to Cecile Raley Designs! I am a NY based jewelry artist and I love working with natural, high end gemstones. While I do sell some treated stones for variety's sake, my commitment is to using completely unadulterated gems. Whenever possible, my cut stones are not heated, oiled, glass filled, dyed, or diffusion treated. My designs often work backwards from the gem, and I am proud to be able to offer some truly rare finds, such as Merelanit Mint Garnet, Mahenge Spinel, Color Change Garnet, Ceylon sapphires, unheated Tanzanite, and more. These stones are hard to come by, and I often chase parcels for weeks to get a hold of these gems.

I am happy to create custom designs, please convo me if you are interested. I know some very reliable gem dealers in NY, so don't hesitate to ask if you are looking for unusual untreated gems.

Note that custom designs do take longer and can be costly (mostly in terms of time, less so in terms of material). For custom items, I can work in sterling or gold. A simple and more economical alternative to a custom design is an adaptation of my existing designs with one of my gems. (Sorry, I do not set customer's stones at this time.)

My blog also recommends various resources for you to learn about gems, gemstone pricing and availability.
