The Place to Buy the Stones You've Dreamed of!
Welcome to Heart of Stone Studio, home to the web's most beautiful gemstones. Whether you are a professional jewelry designer, student or hobbyist, your best selection is here. Choose among 300 different kinds of gemstones, including unset cabochons, drusies and faceted gems, as well as drilled and finished pendants. Buy your dream gems from our collection of 2,500 one-of-a-kind stones, each hand-picked by website owner and jewelry artist Judy Kiriazis.
We offer you the finest selection of cabochons (opaque, flat-backed gems), drusies (encrusted with sparkling crystals), faceted gems, and ready-to-wear drilled pendants and beads. You can find earring pairs, matched sets, even graded gems for necklaces and bracelets.
Judy has organized these diverse stones with an artist's eye: by color, by pattern, and by speciality. Just click on the categories above to start your exploration, or use the forward and back arrows to browse leisurely through the site.
One of the best features of our new site is the powerful Search Box, shown above left. You can key the name of a stone, a combination of color and shape, or a size class. Our Shopper's Guide (link below) provides handy tips and shortcuts to get the most out of your Heart of Stone experience.
Best of all, you have the option of opening your own personal account so that you can build a wish list, speed up checkout, and keep track of your purchases. And once you've completed a piece with a Heart of Stone Studio gem, you can have it posted it to our Guest Gallery. We invite you to shop with us again and again and become part of the Heart of Stone Studio community!
