Creativity and Custom Design
Koorey Creations is a dynamic studio of hand crafted jewelry creativity and exemplary custom services. Our focus is to match the jewelry art we create with the living art that walks through our door!
Sometimes a purchase is made of a current custom piece and sometimes our customers have a particular idea in mind. We offer loose stones of our own to help achieve this goal or sometimes we use an offering from our client's personal collection. In either case our focus is to create a piece that has heirloom quality, incredible comfort or practicality for daily wear, minimal upkeep and outstanding beauty.

Deborah Koorey, Owner: “Some folks describe our pieces as European Styling. I just like to call them classically elegant with a creative twist. I'm proud of the fact that, for the most part, our heirloom quality pieces can be worn daily or for any fine occasion. They are stylish and uniquely crafted, and in many cases, simply one of a kind.
Deborah Koorey: “We named our ring designs "Anatomic" because we have added elements to the standard “comfort fit” that insure, no matter which design is chosen, that the wearer’s experience will be pleasurable. Our design is engineered to match the anatomy of the finger and allows even people with burgeoning knuckle problems the hope of extended time in ring wear. As a byproduct of this fit, it almost always ensures that no re-shanking will ever be needed in the ring’s lifetime. Our choice of a minimal use of jewelry pronging also extends stone security and reduces the need for regular visits for stone checkups!” Read more about our craft...
Grace Koorey, Third Generation Goldsmith: “Goldsmithing is a love of mine. I enjoy spending time with our customers to upgrade, create and engineer new ideas. I am so glad we have at our disposal craftsmen who are highly skilled in all aspects of making jewelry. We excel in design and repair. As the third generation of Koorey goldsmiths I aspire to join the ranks of artisans recognized as masters in the jewelry field, continuing our legacy of offering the best of the best to our customers. There is always something new to learn!
Grace Koorey: "Since I was a little girl, I have been around gemstones. Sometimes I take for granted these extraordinary treasures. I have been exposed to them on a daily basis. I think it is just the norm! Recently, I was researching a stone cutter for a customer. I found multiple articles in various international books that spoke about not only this cutter, but a host of others who have changed the stone cutting industry for good. As I reviewed the list I realized I personally know almost every one of these cutters! Some I had met as a small child. A child, who was graciously permitted to freely hold these dazzling gems. Now, as a young woman, I understand that I am privileged to work with these marvelous gems.”
“We handle your history with care”
Deborah Koorey: “Jewelry can be seemingly timeless as it flows between generations. It seems to be eternal as it “recreates” itself through time. Occasionally, we take a moment to help reinvent its use. My belief is that when we choose to do this some things may be scrapped, some restructured, some re-designed and some saved for future generations. When a customer explores these options we are here to expertly assist them. We strive to give the maximum return on all gold, whether scrapping or redesigning. We encourage our customers to take collectibles to be reviewed by other experts to determine their value as heirlooms, and not cash in pieces for metal content alone.”

Once an appointment is made for a consultation a Koorey Creations expert will explore and offer ideas to create a design using customer's materials. We will then create sketches, if needed, to clarify the final design. A non-refundable fee is charged for sketching if no work is commissioned, otherwise it is part of the end price. All custom jobs using customer materials are at customer risk. Any unacceptable risk shall be clearly noted to the customer at point of sale or any time during design development. On special orders 1/2 down is required, with balance due upon delivery. Estimated Delivery time: 6- 8 weeks.
Koorey Creations offers an alteration and repair service. Small repair usually takes one to two weeks, unless otherwise noted. The Koorey family has two shops in two locations and reserves the right to use either shop. All repairs are done at the customer's risk. All unacceptable risks are noted to customer before proceeding.
At times, to finish a piece exactly to your specifications, we may have to do detail drawings for your approval. We require a payment for these sketches whether the customer proceeds to commission the actual piece or not. We do reserve the right to keep the designs made from these sketches when no work is commissioned. All designs remain the property of Koorey Creations.
Most of the Classic Koorey Creations pieces use the process of the Lost Wax Casting or hand fabrication. See more...
