About Us

Colored Natural Gemstones from Rare Earth Jewelry

Welcome to Rare Earth Jewelry, San Francisco Bay Area artists creating custom engagement rings and fine jewelry.

 Crafted with Care

At Rare Earth, handcrafted means more than just made by our hands, it means that every aspect of our jewelry has been ethically sourced and responsibly crafted.   A great part of our passion for making jewelry is in the materials.  All of the diamonds used in Rare Earth Jewelry originate from conflict free areas, such as Canada and Australia, and 95% of the precious metals we use are recycled and then refined for purity. 

We also use Fair Trade gemstones whenever possible. Fair Trade is a continuing project to improve the environmental, labor and social conditions of artisanal miners and to protect the environment.  Fair Trade gemstones are usually mined by hand, with small hand-held tools, minimizing the impact on the environment and protecting wildlife habitat.

Rare Earth Jewelry is made with care in America, one piece at a time.

Uniquely You

Jewelry is uniquely personal. It's a way to express our love and commitment to each other, and to commemorate life's important milestones. The more memorable the occasion, the more you want your gift to be something special, for it to mean more than a just piece pulled out of a jeweler's case at the local chain store. You want it to reflect your personal taste, your touch, a stone or metal that captures your imagination and creates a truly wonderful and lasting gift. These are the pieces we love to create for our customers. We hope to do the same for you.

We offer a full range of services, from one of a kind custom designs, to semi-custom, utilizing both traditional wax casting methods and the latest in auto-cad computer design. We can also customize any design with any gemstone, and have over 50,000 stones in stock. Don't hesitate to ask about your favorite gem.

We also reset heirloom stones. Do you have a piece of jewelry you no longer wear, or perhaps your mother's diamond or grandmother's Ruby? If you have a stone you'd like reset, just contact us and we'd be happy to make you a setting for it. 

Quality and Affordability

As small independent jewelers we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of quality and customer service. We personally handle every aspect of your project from start to finish, working with you from concept to design, hand selecting each stone and creating your piece, from casting to stone setting, and all of the way through final polish.  We feel this personalized level of service sets us apart, and it would seem our customers agree.   Our 5 star rating and thousands of glowing Reviews speak for themselves.  

Being an independent jeweler has other advantages too.  We don't have the high overhead and markups of the large chain stores.   We source our own materials, importing diamonds and gemstones from all over the world, and the relationships we've built over the years with artisan miners and stone cutters allows us access to top quality material at excellent prices. You'll see those savings reflected in our prices, which you'll find are much more affordable than comparable custom jewelry. 

If you'd like to create something special, we'd love to work with you.
