Where are your items made and who makes them?
Our jewelry and gemstone cabochons are made in San Diego, CA (actually San
Marcos in San Diego County). All jewelry, the dichroic glass cabochons
and most of the gemstone cabochons are made by Elaine
Griveas. The remainder of gemstone cabochons are made by her husband
Bill. The Osmena pearl cabochons and Paua shell cabochons were made for
Leeleeko Jewelry in the Philippines.
Why can't I find donut bails
and brooch enhancers like yours anywhere else?
Our donut bails and no-tilt brooch enhancers
are exclusively made by us. They are Elaine Griveas' original designs
and she hand makes each one. We also sell these items wholesale, so you
may see other jewelers offering them for sale or using them on their jewelry.
Can I custom order matching pieces
such as a matching bracelet or earrings for a necklace on the site?
You can order pieces to match although sometimes certain beads or clasps are
no longer available.
Can I order more than one of the
Most of the pieces shown on our site are one-of-a-kind. Which means there is
only one of that item, so please do not order more than one. Exceptions are
the chains and cord necklaces,
pendant accessories and
donut bails which can be ordered in any quantity,
occasionally more than one of a certain type of pendant such as the
orthoceras fossil pendants or
Murano glass pendants
may be available. Also items ordered by style like our
Turbo Pearl Rings, Pearl Flower Rings,
and Bridesmaids' Jewelry that are made to order.

I absolutely love a piece of
jewelry on your site, but it's the wrong size. Can it be adjusted?
It may be possible to lengthen or shorten an item but not always.
Contact us with your specific
request, most adjustments are free of charge.
I have an object (such as a
loose gemstone etc.) can you make it into a piece of jewelry for me?

beads, stones or other objects the customer has supplied.
with your request.
Can you make a custom piece of
jewelry for me from one of your cabochons?
Yes, we can. If you see a cab you like or
are looking for a particular stone for a pendant or other piece of jewelry,
custom orders are welcome.
us with your request.
Are custom orders more expensive?
There is no extra charge for custom orders,
but the minimum order is $25 for new customers. Our pieces are one of a kind,
we charge the same price for a custom piece as we would normally sell that piece
for on our site. This means that a ready made piece and a custom order piece
using the same materials would both cost the same.
Is there a long wait for custom
Custom order can ship in as little as one
day or may take much longer. Sometimes customers want a specific material
which we have to locate or place a large wholesale order which adds to the waiting
period. When you contact us with your request, we will give you a timeframe.
Do you custom make cabochons?
We will make custom cabochons if the material
is available. Our site may show all cabochons of a certain gemstone as sold,
but we may still have more of the rough stone on hand to make more cabs.
If an item is marked sold is it still available?
No, it is not. Although, it may be possible to custom order a similar item
if materials are available.
