About

Ann Summers Jewelry takes our design inspiration from the earth, sea. Minerals, gems, pearls, and all sorts of gorgeous materials make up our designs. We network thousands of suppliers to provide the best gemstones and metals and designs at the best prices. We were recently reminded of the amazing range of colors and tones and lusters that can result from

Our family loves rocks. All kinds of rocks. Minerals, fossils, gemstones, anything out of the ground. We climb up and down rocks, we dig for rocks, we pan for rocks, collect and buy rocks. We’ve been digging in more mines than the seven dwarves. Opal mines, sapphire mines, quartz mines, gold-bearing streams, garnet-bearing streams, and a diamond mine. After years of mentorship, classes, and industry experience, we now buy and sell gemstones in the jewelry industry and use them in beautiful jewelry for our clients.
