Steve and Rebecca Helmich

Steve grew up in California with parents that loved spending time with their two children, traveling across the west collecting rocks, minerals and fossils and attending gem shows. This eventually led to the opening of their own successful rock, mineral and supply shop in the late 1960's, where Steve worked and first developed an interest in lapidary and beautiful gemstones.

After his father retired in 1980 Steve started his own wholesale gem business, traveling the world in search of the finest gemstones.  His experience in selling loose gemstones led to the creation of colored stone jewelry, simple pendants and earrings made with beautiful gemstones, in yellow or white gold.

Rebecca began working as a teenager in 1971 at her mother's gallery and jewelry store, serving as buyer, salesperson, photographer, model, merchandiser and designer.  Over the years they owned six successful fine jewelry stores and one designer clothing boutique. 

Steve and Rebecca began their own wonderful journey after meeting at a trade show! For them, there is nothing they enjoy more than providing beautifully designed, meticulously made and affordably priced fine jewelry for their most precious customers!
