Welcome to Pristine Jewelry! (also known as Pristine Gemstone Jewelry).
Quality made genuine gemstone engagement rings, fine gemstone jewelry, as well as loose, precision-cut gemstones are our specialty.
Our gemstones come to you directly from Rogerio Graca, a professional gem cutter and wholesale gemstone supplier with 20 years of experience in the industry, so you can be confident in our products, pricing, and service. (we also have a loose gemstone shop here on Etsy: www.etsy.com/shop/pristinegemstones )
Rogerio uses a "Precision Cut" machine that allows him to cut his gemstones at their correct refractive index. Not all gemstones that you see on the market are cut properly (only about 5% are precision cut). A gemstone must be cut at its correct refractive index to reach its potential in brilliance.
Our in house jewelry is created by Andrea, our design consultant, working closely with our team of highly skilled craftspeople (from Rogerio our gem cutter, to our CAD and casting technician, to our stone setter and goldsmith). We design our pieces to be beautiful, as well as lasting.
