Here at the gallery over half the store is comprised of one of a kind pieces. As a result, we tend to highlight these distinctive stones and designs. These one of a kind designs typically start with a one of a kind stone. From there our designer will create a one of kind setting. Once the metal has been cast the stones are set with the utmost care. Finally the piece is given a final polish and inspection.

Rubies come in all different sizes and qualities. About the only consistent feature with Ruby is the deep, enchanting red that has made it so famous. Most of the time Ruby is faceted into a traditional gemstone. However, there are also star rubies, cat’s eye rubies, and even ruby slices. Ruby is part of the corundum family of gemstones. These are very hard minerals that work great for rings. The corundum family, interestingly enough, also includes sapphires.

14kt gold is a great metal for an active lifestyle. It is a harder alloy than 18kt gold. This results in less scratches and, therefore, less polishing. In comparison to 18kt, which is 75% gold, the 14kt has 58.5% gold. To that end, it is a lighter weight alloy than platinum or 18kt. 14kt gold looks great when it is brushed or polished.

Our designer, Dan Harrison, has been in the jewelry business for over 42 years. In this time he has acquired contacts from all over the world. As a result, Dan is able to acquire some of  the more rare and unique minerals and gems for his creations. Some of these gems and cabochons might not be used for weeks, months, or even years until inspiration strikes. Once the material has spoken to him Dan will start the long, arduous design process. Every step of the design and construction process is overseen personally by Mr Harrison.
