For two and a half decades we have shared the beauty of antique jewels and vintage gems with the Portland community and beyond, while staying true to our mission to do no harm to the planet in order to have beautiful jewelry.

So stop on by if you can and see for yourself what I've been up to for the last 25 years. I promise you will be warmly welcomed, and you won't be disappointed, the cases brim with treasures, all made with love, past and present, and all recycled.
