Exceptional jewelry design often begins with sourcing outstanding gemstones. We scour the gem shows like the annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show for exquisite specimens. It is the premier source for some of the finest gemstones in the world. Pearls from Tahiti, rubies from Madagascar, the finest turquoise from Arizona, and lustrous tanzanite from Tanzania, Africa, are just a few of the more exotic gemstones we work with.
When it comes to metals we design in gold—yellow, white, and rose—silver, palladium, platinum and more. We carry a beautiful line of contemporary necklaces that incorporates anywhere from 1 to 330 fine stainless steel wires—all manufactured in Germany.
Balance is a key element in our design approach. How the pendant lays against the body must be in perfect balance while also making a statement. If we match different pieces—earrings and a pendant, for example, the symmetry and architecture must be complementary so one doesn't dominate the other. A considerable amount of engineering and creative design goes into our combination pieces. You will find that most of our George Kelly jewelry collection consists of fine, one-of-a-kind pieces that are rarely made twice in the same way.
