FAQ

 

Everything you've ever wanted to know about gemstones, still have questions?
Let's talk!


Who is Eva and how does this work?

Hello! And glad you asked. I’m a personal gem stylist working with men and women around the globe to help find the perfect gemstone or make bespoke jewelry that reveals their spirit AND vamps up their style.

Think of me as your private guide through the amazing world of rare colored gems. Whether you’re a passionate lady who demands unique jewelry (and who feels a diamond is 'nice') or the amazing man who loves her (and who's on an intimidating mission to find her a worthy gift), I can help you find what you’re looking for.

Don’t be daunted by the idea of shopping for a colored gemstone. I make it simple with my private, one-on-one sessions where we can:

  1. Handpick a loose colored stone from my private collection

  2. Choose a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry from my ready-made collection

  3. Have a bespoke piece of jewelry made just for you or the one you love

I don't show all my pieces online, so even if you haven't seen your perfect match yet, I can help you find it!The magic happens in our sessions where I learn about your story, personality and preferences to find the perfect match. It’s a very special experience that my private clients love, and you will too.

(Here’s a bit more about me and the certification).


How much does this cost?

I travel around the world and source only the very finest gemstones for my private clients. My pieces are extremely rare (usually rarer than diamonds) and for special requests, there can be a waiting period.

Each stone and piece of jewelry from my collection is an exceptional and remarkable item. Best of all, you will love the experience and have a fantastic story to tell!

Unmounted colored gemstones in my current collection vary from $1,000 to $7,000 while ready-made jewelry such as rings, earrings and bracelets range from $2,500 to $8,500. Bespoke jewelry typically starts from $5,000 and goes up depending on your preferences.  

Most importantly, I am here to help you find exactly what you are looking for in a fun, easy, stress-free way. Let me know your budget and I can help you find the perfect fit.


Can you turn my own gems or jewelry into something new?

My passion is the hunt for a perfect, rare stone that captures the essence of a private client. Thus, I only use personally sourced stones for which I can ensure the quality, beauty and origin. Unfortunately, I’m unable to work with family heirlooms or old jewelry.

That being said, I’d like to invite you to try something new. I provide a unique hand-in-hand experience that not only makes you a part of the adventure, but makes the final piece (whether for yourself or a loved one) that much more special.

It’s an adventure you'd like to go on.


How long does it take to create a bespoke piece of jewelry?

I’ll need 3 hours of your time over the course of 1 to 3 months. The total time commitment from beginning to end is about 1 to 3 months, depending on the gemstone and the complexity of the jewelry design.

Special requests, such as covert missions that need to be hidden from your better half, can be handled but need to be assessed on an individual basis.


What if I don't live in Europe? Can you meet me in my hometown?

Not a problem! Overseas missions are possible and many of my clients are based outside of the Netherlands… and often outside of Europe.

We’ll have phone calls, Skype sessions and/or email correspondence throughout the process. I’ll show you computer-aided designs (“CAD-design”) or hand-made sketches, and the process will be as seamless as if you were sitting beside me.

If you’d like to meet in person, we can arrange that as well. My gemstone work takes me around the world. Just let me know where you’d like to meet and I’ll do my best to accommodate you.

That said, I prefer to meet in the following cities: London, New York, Geneva, or Amsterdam.

My primary goal is to provide you with all the information necessary so that we can effectively work together - openly or in a covert operation hidden from your special one.


Is there a return policy?

If your loved one doesn’t like the piece, we’ll keep looking until we find the perfect match.
