International Gem Society

What sets a Ritual Gems creation apart from the rest? It’s our unwavering commitment to sourcing authentic and premium gemstones and materials. None of our gemstones are artificially dyed or man-made; when we say “amethyst,” we mean precisely that.

Navigating the current gemstone market can be like wandering through a maze of uncertainties. Many well-intentioned artisans lack the expertise to distinguish between genuine and imitated gemstones. At Ritual Gems, we have a strict policy of sourcing only from the most reputable and trustworthy suppliers, allowing us to assure you of the authenticity of every gemstone in our collection.

Our dedication to precision and quality means that each gemstone in our lineup is guaranteed to emanate its fullest energies, supporting you and your intentions. At Ritual Gems, we don’t just create jewelry; we ensure that every adornment you choose resonates with the genuine magic found in nature’s treasures, empowering you to carry a piece of the mystical wherever life may take you.

My Story

Liz Nichols

Owner – Jeweler – Designer

Liz - founder of Ritual Gems

Liz’s love of gemstones started at a very young age. She frequently visited the Smithsonian Institute Museum as a child, where she would spend hours peering into the display cases in the gemstone, mineral and fossil section. Although her love of stones made a geology degree tempting, her love of chemistry and how the body functioned lead her follow a path in the life sciences.

After graduating with a Biochemistry & Genetics degree, Liz continued exploring her fascination with crystals in a macro-molecular crystallography lab where she was in charge of growing crystals from protein molecules.

But, despite a love of science and her work in a biomedical lab, her life took a different direction after a big move in 2008.  Now, running Ritual Gems and crafting jewelry is her full time passion. After several courses in metalsmithing she took a course in wax carving with Joel Olson where she found a love for this medium. While she still loves working with a torch, many of her more recent designs are made with the lost wax casting process.
