Welcome!

By Design Gems

There is something special about helping craft a custom piece of jewelry for a loved one that will live through the ages and create lifelong memories. By Design Gems opened our charming jewelry store in the Old Historic District of Colorado Springs to help you with just that. Our skilled craftspeople specialize in advising you on how to put together your ideas into a comprehensive piece and then take care of every detail during its creation. Whether you are looking for a sparkling gemstone cut just right for the perfect engagement ring, or one of our premade stunning jewelry pieces for a last-minute shopping gift, we are here for you. As a Colorado family-owned business, By Design Gems ensures the best possible service along with our signature personal touch.

Take Advantage of Local Resources

Colorado offers a wealth of beautiful gemstone rough material from local mines. By Design Gems uses these nearby treasures in many of our exclusive designs. We also receive a consistent supply of gemstones and rough from sources around the globe to make your custom designed jewelry truly shine.

Using these beautiful raw materials, By Design Gems will create a unique, custom jewelry masterpiece in our onsite studio workshop that’s fit with a 3D printer.

Artistic Vision

Our store features local Colorado artists, as well as jewelers from other parts of the United States and around the globe. Please check out our “Artist Collections” page to learn more about what inspired these talented artists to get involved in what they do. We exclusively carry designs by Matthew Flynn and custom cut gemstones by Jim Barzee. We are always searching for new artists to display in our showroom and online, so you’ll never know what new pieces you’ll see next time you visit us.

We hope you enjoy browsing our gemstones and jewelry pieces online or stop by and check out our showroom at 2520 1/2 West Colorado Avenue in Colorado Springs. We guarantee no matter where your imagination takes you, we will find a way to bring your piece to life.
