A Visit Inside Our Studio

May 05, 2021 3 min read

Our jewelry design studio located in the neighborly area of Phinney Ridge and Greenwood (affectionately known as Phinneywood) is a combined effort of design inspired by our origin story. In the same way we design custom and bespoke jewelry, we brought together a team of talented designers, and local professionals to design our vision for an open floor jewelry boutique. Creating a relaxed and welcoming environment was important to us. A place where we can listen to our clients and openly chat and begin the process of designing a beautiful bespoke piece of jewelry.

"Creating a relaxed and welcoming environment was important to us."

We worked with talented local interior designer, Amanda Okonek from Happy Vesta to pull together an inspired inspiration mood board that included swatches, fabric and paint samples, and inspiration photos that aligned with our visual brand identity created for us by local design studio Aeolidia.

With touches of diamond patterns, geometric shapes, and displays influenced by our logo and traditional jewelry shapes, our design team worked to bring together an elegant studio to be inspired, ideate, and collaborate as a team with our clients.

"There are gemstone patterns lovingly integrated throughout the studio."

Custom glass display cases are found throughout the entire studio. We enjoy showcasing artifacts and mineral art that we've collected over the years. It's our way of connecting the gemstones and diamonds we use in our work with the natural rocks and minerals that come from the natural world. Almost all of our mineral art is available for purchase.

"These velvet stools are some of our favorite sitting areas to visit with our clients."

There are various desk areas to comfortably shop our various collections. We display jewelry throughout the studio to give our clients a space to discover, educate, and inquire about their favorite pieces. We're always happy to answer questions about any of our pieces.

Our custom jewelry designers have separate desk areas to have a private space to discuss budget options, gemstone requests, and all the other important jewelry purchase details that go into designing a custom bespoke ring, pair of earrings, necklace, or other fine jewelry item. 

"Natural light allows your chosen gemstones to shine so that you can envision your custom jewelry accurately."

We designed and built a custom seating area to give our clients a space to wait in between jewelry appointments. The wall mural pattern was designed by another local talented Seattle artist named Rosie Alyea. The tree illustration mural custom designed by Rosie, is inspired by the acacia tree commonly found throughout the African landscape. We highly recommend following her work on Instagram.

"See if you can spot the hidden jewelry related patterns in the tree when you visit our studio."

customizable engagement rings baraka gems seattle

The customizable engagement ring section is one of our clients' favorite areas in the studio to try on our most popular engagement and wedding ring styles. This is a great spot to visualize how a certain style will fit and look on your ring finger before you reserve and purchase your custom jewelry order. It's also a great way to explore and try on various jewelry metal colors against skin tones.

"We encourage our clients to play and try on as many ring styles as possible."

We hope you've enjoyed a tour of our studio and we look forward to meeting you all in the near future. Visit our studio for your next custom engagement, wedding ring, or bespoke jewelry design project. We also carry a curated collection of vintage and estate jewelry that we think you will love.
