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.

Tourmaline is a very interesting mineral with several unique attributes. First and foremost it is the only gemstone in the world that will hold an electrical charge. Additionally, tourmaline come in every color in the rainbow. Most of the important tourmaline deposits are found in South America. However, tourmaline can be found on every continent. Here at the gallery we focus in the most rare colors. Tourmaline is known as a jewelers gem as it is very bright, is quite hard, and comes in so many colors.

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.
