JES Jewelers was born in 2011 with the design of the "Alu-Blue Droplet," an aluminum pendant adorned with a London blue topaz and a dream to share a passion for gemstones and jewelry with others. Unlike many typical jewelry businesses, we have no brick-and-mortar location; we come to you either virtually or in person. In an industry that is steeped in tradition and expectations, we like to think we bring something fresh and distinctive to the market. We provide custom-made artisan jewelry that is accessible to everyone. We spend time working with you one-on-one to create a unique, custom-designed piece of jewelry. Unconcerned with the status quo, here you'll find a unique melting pot of nontraditional metals (like pewter, aluminum, brass, and copper), gemstones, distinctive contemporary and classic designs all paired with your sense of style. We also provide gemological lab services that provide a statement of your stone’s attributes and a record of its quality.
About the Owner and Artist
My passion for gemstones started at a young age, primarily because of an encyclopedia and a television network that sold gems and jewelry. I jumped right into learning everything I could about all the gemstones I saw. Then, I started collecting sparkly crystals, rocks, and small, inexpensive gems to reduce the gemstone fever I had caught. I purchased my first “big” gemstone, a 2.66 carat Amethyst, at 14. After that, the fascination was only stronger, and that one has now turned into a collection with over 100. The enjoyment of jewelry was there also. I spent hours doodling jewelry, hoping that someday somebody would make it, but the idea of making it myself started with a book and some random shapes of aluminum, one of which progressed into the “Alu-Blue Droplet". I since have been lucky enough to study coursework in Jewelry Manufacturing & Design and Gemology from various experts. I have earned a Gemologist Apprenticeship Certificate (courses taken: Introduction to Gemology, Diamond Fundamentals, and Colored Gemstone Fundamentals) from the International School of Gemology, and received a Pearls as One Certified Pearl Specialist Certificate from the Cultured Pearl Association of America. I believe that jewelry should be as unique as those who wear it. It doesn’t matter what it is made of or how big it is; it’s the sentiment, the expression, that genuinely matters. I think that every piece of jewelry can hold a meaning that is bigger than itself. — J. Eric Steventon
