    I am returning customer because the jewellery and the buying experience is brilliant.
    Rachel is so helpful and friendly, very quick to respond to queries and always lovely. Her shop is Etsy at its best; a small business with fantastic customer service.
    Her jewellery is of really good quality and well made. It is also stunningly beautiful and this ruby is no exception! Buy with confidence - you won’t regret a purchase from Gin Rin!

    Rachel’s work is flawless and I absolutely love her jewellery.
    This was a custom piece and Rachel was a joy to work with from start to finish. Her customer service is excellent, I was kept well informed during the making process and sent photos when it was ready.
    It is such a pretty, delicate necklace and I know it will be treasured.
    As always, the gift wrapping is beautiful and so will make a perfect present.
    Overall I am delighted with my purchases and would absolutely recommend Gin Rin to anyone 💕

On Etsy since 2020

Hello and welcome to my shop. I’m Rachel; a self-confessed, gemstone obsessed, jewellery lover with a passion for one of a kind pieces.

I N S P I R A T I O N

I’ve been into gemstones since I was a child, mesmerised by the colours, the inclusions and the schiller, and fascinated by how something so beautiful could come out of the ground. I was an avid member of fossil club (which my sister still teases me about to this day), I loved growing my own amethyst crystals with my children’s science set, and mining for fool’s gold at Legoland was just about the most exciting thing ever.

The association with meanings and healing properties has always appealed to my inquisitive side, I’ll forever be drawn to the extraordinary and strange. And I love the idea that these pretty little things could actually be of benefit to our mental and physical well-being.

I hadn’t really considered making jewellery until a few years ago. I had an epiphany whilst admiring the Koi Carp at a local garden centre (one of my boyfriend’s favourite pass times that had been enforced upon me). Surprisingly to my earlier reluctant self, I found the fish not only pleasant to look at, but inspiring. Their vibrant colours and metallic scales glistened magically in the sunlight and I decided I wanted to wear them. Seeing as I’m no Cruella Devil, I thought ‘I know, I’ll make jewellery’, and thus was born my dream.

Turns out that in Japan those metallic glittery scales are referred to as Gin Rin…

Every piece of Gin Rin Jewellery has been handmade in my little garden studio using ethically sourced precious metal and gemstones. Most often I use rose cuts as I love the way they reflect the light. Currently all my pieces are made from sterling silver but I aspire to also work in gold in the future.

I would class my working style as ‘intuitive’, I rarely calculate, measure or mark anything, all cuts are made freehand, as are the engravings on my signature fin edge settings. I’m not a perfectionist, I want my jewellery to be beautiful, not perfect.

Due to the handmade nature of the jewellery and the unique stones, every piece is completely one of a kind. I will do my best to create custom pieces similar to a desired item if it has been sold, is not in a suitable size or if you like a design but wish for a different gemstone. Just drop me a message with any enquiries.

Thanks so much for visiting x

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

To maintain the finish on your jewellery and protect the stones, avoid getting wet (especially with opals) as well as water this includes perfume, cleaning products or any other liquid or chemical. Your jewellery will also be vulnerable to humidity so try to store in a cool dry place – do not store in the bathroom for example.

Silver is subject to tarnish over time, purchasing a polishing cloth will help to remove said tarnish. Dropping, banging or catching your jewellery will cause it to weaken. Gemstones all have different levels of hardness and some will be more easily damaged than others.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each order will arrive in a branded gift box with a branded gift bag. I can also include a note to the recipient if organised at the time of purchase. No invoice will be included in the box.

Sizing details

All rings are one of a kind and will come in a specific size that may possibly be enlarged slightly (details will be on individual listings). I can try to accommodate similar custom rings if a different size is required.

I would recommend purchasing an inexpensive ring sizer if you are unsure of your size.
