Gemstone jewelry has made beautiful gifts for centuries. At James Avery Artisan Jewelry, we craft our designs with gemstones that are ethically-sourced from around the globe to create heirloom-quality jewelry you’ll want to pass down from generation to generation.
Discover the Palais Collection featuring layered mother-of-pearl gem necklaces, rings and earrings, all inspired by colorful trips to the Palais in Paris. Our Avery Remembrance Collection is a longtime favorite that features birthstone charms (which can also be worn as birthstone necklace charms), earrings and rings. Explore our birthstone guide to find a gem for every month of the year – and the history and meaning behind them.
We select the best quality natural, enhanced, and lab-created gemstones based on three qualities: beauty, rarity, and durability. Beauty can be measured by the gemstone’s color, clarity and cut. Rarity is determined by the scarcity of the gemstone in nature or in the marketplace. Durability is based on the hardness, toughness, and stability of the gem. We do not use any imitation or artificial gemstones in our designs. You can find the type of stone used on any particular design on each individual product page – and our Customer Service team and store Associates are happy to help you find pieces that meet all your personal preferences.
We offer over 20 different gemstones ranging from citrine for a yellow stone jewelry look to rubies garnets and more for a red stone jewelry look. Love the tranquility of blue? Turquoise, topaz and blue sapphire offer different blue hues to suit your style. As well as traditional gemstone cuts like oval cuts, round brilliant cuts and square princess cuts, we also offer gemstones in fun new ways like our small gemstone beads in turquoise and pearl or our gemstone faceted beads that add a fun hint of sparkle to bracelets, necklaces and chains.
Whether it’s a gemstone necklace to celebrate your birthday, your kids birthstone rings to stack together or a gift of birthstone jewelry for grandma, our gemstone jewelry celebrates the special people, memories and occasions in your life. From various cuts of gemstone rings to little pops of color with gemstone beads on bracelets or some sparkle with gemstone earrings, there are endless ways to celebrate life in color.
