That has been our motto since our business inception. Unique. Original. Genuine. High Quality. That is what we are about.
Hi, my name is Crystal, designer and owner of Crystal Diane Studios. I love unique jewelry, natural gemstones, and original designs. I love browsing gem shows for the best stones and pearls. So in 1993 I decided to start making my own jewelry. I started by showing my designs at craft fairs and juried art shows. I later sold my designs at resort gift shops and online through eBay. I was also commissioned to design high-end custom opal jewelry for a retailer in Australia. Now I am blessed to have three children, so I offer my designs via retail outlets, primarily Whole Foods Market, and my website. This allows me to stay home with my children and enjoy watching them grow up. My husband supports the business with amazing handcrafted jewelry displays and IT support. My jewelry artisan team consists of all moms. By working part time and flex time, my team is offered the privilege of being able to pick up their kids from school, attend their sports activities or coach their after school academic teams. Best of all, Crystal Diane Studios can support moms with some extra income without sacrificing time with their children.
A little about our jewelry …
Just a little something to something all fancy ... and everything n between. We design to encompass a wide range of styles and sizes. The common thread is quality. All of our silver jewelry is made with sterling silver earwires. That may also include the head pin that holds the stones, the shapes, the beads, clasps, etc. Our gold jewelry is either 14kt gold-filled, vermeil, or 14kt gold. In all cases, the exact materials used are listed in each items description. Although every effort will be made to ship the exact earwire style shown in our photos, however, there may be circumstances when that particular design is sold out.
Once you fall in love with your new earrings, you will be heartbroken if you lose one. One quality measure we practice is to wrap the loop around the headpin. That means we twist the wire around and around to hold the stones on each earring dangle. Whenever possible, we attach the earring dangle in the loop of the earwire and then wrap it which allows us to not open and close the loop, keeping the metal stronger.
Lets talk about the stones and pearls …
A good portion of our designs feature genuine gemstones and freshwater pearls. There are no two exactly the same. Pearls vary in color shading and size while the gemstones vary in color, grading, and cut. That is part of what makes our jewelry so unique.
If you see one of our designs and it has pearl and aquamarine stones, but you would love pearl and amethyst stones, please email us to inquire. We carry a large assortment of gemstones, pearls, and silver beads. We can often create a design to match exactly what you are looking for. We also custom design the perfect jewelry for bridesmaids with just the right touch of color matching your wedding theme.
Occasionally, I will offer interesting and unique jewelry that I find at gem shows. These pieces offer my customers a different style of jewelry at a very affordable price. These are limited and when they are sold they are gone.
Our passion is designing jewelry that is as unique and original as you are. We strive to provide a great quality, everyday earring that you will love wearing. We hope you or your lucky gift recipient will enjoy our jewelry. Please let us hear from you on our testimonial page or on our Facebook page!
