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, making the most of our 450 square feet with showcases sharing the space with lathes, benches, and tools used to make small metal pieces of art.

From doodles, dreams, and sketches, we help translate these inspirations into beautiful and unique designs. We encourage our customers to come up with symbols, ideas, and concepts, drawing inspiration from artwork, photos, stories, etc. We help translate all of that information into an evolution of wax models that bring their ideas to life where we are free to explore together until the design is perfect and unique! Our designs are as individual and varied as our customers, and we try to encourage their creativity rather than force our aesthetic or current trends on them. Our process has worked for over 16,000 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.
