Gemstones and Jewelry

Frequently asked questions about our gemstone and jewelry products.

Yes. Each piece is one of a kind and photographed (and in some cases filmed) individually. The piece that you see on our website is the very same one that you will hold in your hand.

Due to the unique nature of our one-of-a-kind products, changing Gemstones is not possible.

We recommend washing your jewelry in clear spring water and then drying it and polishing it with a special polishing cloth.

You can rinse gemstones and crystals in clear spring water (live spring water is the best) and then put them in the sun for a few hours (it is not recommended to put kunzite in the sun).

As with Crystals, it is best to rinse Moldavite in clear, live, spring water, and then let it soak up the sun for several hours.

This is a great link to an International Ring Size Chart where you can convert international ring sizes:

We recommend using the Find my Ring Size website for quick and easy ring sizing online.

Our Moldavite is 100% authentic. All Moldavites come with a Certificate of Authenticity which includes the grade and weight.

We design and handcraft unique Moldavite Jewelry, each piece completely individual.

Additionally, we Activate our Moldavite at a sacred healing temple in the mountains.

We stand by our Moldavite and guarantee all of our gemstones.

We do not sell treated or synthetic stones of any kind.

Feel free to have any of our gems reviewed and authenticated by a gemologist.

All of our Crystals are 100% authentic.

Yes, in almost all of our designs the gemstones either touch the skin or have open backs. There is no barrier between you and the stone!

Custom designs are something that we look forward to being able to create for individual customers in the future, but for now we are not taking custom orders.

We have created a Gemstone Directory to help customers select stones.

We recommend you use your eyes and intuition to select individual stones and combinations.

We offer a wide variety of stone combinations that we believe are complimentary and powerful.
