Specializing in natural, gem quality stone, A Stone's Throw Jewelers features unusual ceramic and colored stone jewelry, handcrafted stone carvings, natural gemstones, and collector fossils and mineral specimens. You'll find an exciting representation of jewelry and stone art objects from around the world, personally selected by owner, Beverly Iber, Graduate Gemologist.
In the 1970's Beverly's love of Africa took her to Kenya for eight years where she managed and shared ownership in a downtown Nairobi jewelry store with Judy Bridges and husband, Campbell Bridges, the renowned geologist credited with identifying the first tanzanite and later discovering the rare green garnet, tsavorite.
While in Kenya Beverly completed her FGA (Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain) and made many of the worldwide contacts for the unique merchandise A Stone's Throw carries today. Beverly went on to attain her Graduate Gemologist Diploma from the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) when she returned to the States. She has now enjoyed more than 35 years in the gem and jewelry business, most of them as owner/manager of A Stone's Throw, the retail store formerly located in Fearrington Village, North Carolina.
We are continually adding new inventory to our website. Please check in frequently.
