i searched ask, but most of the questions were related to engagement jewelry, so here goes.
my mother, for the longest time, has wanted a mother's ring. you know, the cheesy rings with all the birthstones of the kids and grandkids and whatnot. but most of what i am finding online is just that - cheesy, or it doesn't fit six people (my brother, his wife, their two kids, me and my sig other). also, since my mother is in training to be an RN, i think a ring might be a really bad idea in terms of germ pickup and catching on things, so i'd like to get her a pendant so she can actually wear it. something i would design with the help of a jeweler.
my mom is awesome, and works really hard, and loves us all completely unconditionally (which has to be difficult as all hell, if you knew us). i want to make this a reality for her this christmas (and her birthday, which is five days later). she's having a really hard time with school and i want something that will make her happy.
i have never done this before, and would like some help with finding a good jeweler in the bay area (i can go as far as sausalito north and monterey south). the following apply: she likes gold, and i want real gemstones, and nothing gaudy or crazy expensive. so tell me, mefites, of your experiences with custom jewelry in the bay area. pictures of your finished product and comments on how the jewelry held up for you would be lovely too.
tl;dr: help me find a great jeweler in the bay area so i can make a six person mother's pendant for my mom. thanks!
