About The Reluctant Gem Jewellery

The Reluctant Gem Jewellery

Jewellery to inspire you!

When I retired from my successful career as a garden designer, I was looking for something new to do. A chance advert for a starter jewellery making kit kick started a hobby - and I was hooked! Friends and family received my jewellery as gifts, and soon people started to buy from me. The Reluctant Gem was established a couple of years later when I thought women might like to share my love of colourful gemstones and pearls - even though I felt reluctant to part with my treasures, hence the name.They make me feel good when I wear a finished piece.

I read books on gemstones (and still do), watched professionals demonstrate their techniques and I practised and practised until I felt confident about what I was making was good enough to open a shop here.

The use of colour is central to the style, a style which allows the gemstones to take centre stage and be the main focus. From bright colours to natural tones, there's a wide range of pieces to suit your own style - or why not be just a bit daring and try out something different? If you have a few key pieces of cothing in your wardrobe, they will be enlivened by updating your accessories.

I'm very careful about where my gemstones have come from, and if they have been ethically produced. Although I'm not able to personally visit the countries and suppliers, I have some select sources in the UK which can be relied upon to do this. If I have any doubts, I simply don't buy or sell them.

Don't hesitate to feel good! There's rarely more than one design available.

All you see is lovingly created with the aim of providing you, my customer, with high quality jewellery.
