- About Us
I ALWAYS LIKE TO ASK
our customers how and where they first discovered Larimar. Inevitably, they'll tell me that they first saw it on their honeymoon, or a vacation in the Dominican Republic, or a Caribbean cruise. Me? I first discovered Larimar at a Costco in Culver City, California.
I immediately fell in love with the stone (but was surprised at how expensive it was!) and decided against buying it. I knew for sure that I could find it someplace else in Los Angeles - WRONG!! and if not there, then on Ebay. I looked everywhere but couldn't find any place in Los Angeles to buy Larimar. So, I went to Ebay. I bid on what I thought was a fabulous pendant. WRONG AGAIN!! I spent way too much money on what ended up being a teeny, tiny little stone, somewhat greenish, with a handmade bail made out of thin silver wire.
I knew there must be a better way to buy Larimar. After much research, I finally found other sources for Larimar - finally seeing stones more beautiful than I could have imagined.
AND LARIMARKET WAS BORN
So I bought and I bought until I ran out of places to store my beautiful Larimar treasures. And then, my husband suggested that perhaps we should start selling it. I was delighted at the idea. Now, I could surround myself with this gorgeous stone AND spread the word about Larimar.
So, here we are . . . very excited at the prospect of sharing our hand-selected Larimar jewelry with each and every one of you (and all of your friends and relatives, too, hopefully!)
I learned the hard way about buying Larimar. I didn't realize that there was a difference in quality of stone. I thought all Larimar was basically the same. Boy, was I wrong again! I've seen good and I've seen bad larimar and there is a world of difference between them. I hope to save you all the trouble.
