Our Story

 

Nestled for over 20 years in the heart of Seattle (just 1/2 a block south of Pike Place Market), Goldmine Design is a small workshop of fine artisan jewelers.

We are not a “normal” jewelry store. All of our pieces are made here at our shop, sharing the space with lathes, benches, and tools used to make small metal pieces of art.

From doodles, dreams and sketches, we translate your inspirations into beautiful and unique designs. We encourage our customers to come up with symbols, ideas and concepts, drawing inspiration from artwork, photos, stories and experiences. We help translate all of that information into an evolution of renderings and wax models that bring your ideas to life, and continue to develop them together until the emerging design is perfect and unique! Our designs are as individual and varied as our customers and we encourage you to express your creativity in your custom piece. Our process has worked for over 19,000 pieces and counting without making the same ring twice!

The joyous thing about fine jewelry is that it often symbolizes new beginnings, important life events, and personal milestones. To help celebrate, we invite our customers to gather their friends and family to share in the experience of our unique casting parties. You wield the torch to cast the gold, transforming molten metal right before your own eyes!

We strongly believe that owning a beautiful piece of jewelry should be guilt free, which is why we use 100% recycled precious metals and ethically sourced gemstones and diamonds. And we believe in love and have always proudly supported the LGBTQ community.
