It starts with the Stone

Tourmaline pink gemstones ethically sourced Jennifer Hillyer Jewelry

 

My specialty is hunting beautiful and unique gemstones from across the globe to fulfill your jewelry dreams. I am able to source nearly any type, color, and cut of gemstone or diamond from a select set of ethical gem dealers with whom I have relationships. Whether you are looking for a Sapphire, Spinel, Tourmaline, Garnet, Emerald, Opal or Diamond, you can be sure we will find the stone that speaks to you and will keep you mesmerized for a lifetime.

If you would like a certificate for your gem, please let me know at the time of our consultation and I'd be happy to include one for you.

Our Consultation

We will have a brief consultation at the time of your choosing. I find ideas are best communicated through phone or video chat. We will discuss what inspires you, how you want to feel when wearing your jewelry, and we'll begin to formulate some ideas for your piece. I invite you to bring a friend, family member or partner who may be interested or with whom you'd like to consult. The more the merrier!

The Sketch

After our chat, I will draft by hand or computer render design ideas for your review. If you would like a photorealistic computer render, there is a $150 design deposit. This ensures we are both committed to the process! At this point you can make any last changes and I will get to work crafting your piece.

Fabrication

I use both ancient and modern methods to craft your special piece. I may carve a one-of-a-kind wax model by hand, fabricate it in metal, or engineer your piece with 3D rendering software, depending on the design. 

Setting

Your piece is then meticulously cleaned, polished, and set by me. Voila! I will send along photos of the finished piece and you will see the magic of your idea coming to life!

Shipping

I ship your finished piece carefully wrapped in my very giftable branded packaging, fully insured, via overnight or 2-day shipping.

Finalization

I want your piece to look and feel perfect. I will check in with you after you receive your jewelry to make sure it's just right! Small modifications, like resizing, can be made within 30 days of receipt.

You have questions! It's only natural. Please don't hesitate to reach out via the form above, and we will respond within 48 hours. Feel free to give me 3-4 words that describe the look and feel of your new piece. Words like "elegant, statement, non-traditional, bad-ass!" all work well. I look forward to working with you!
