Our Geneva Storefront is open, with Illinois mandated restrictions. Click here for details. Closed July 4th.

We will be closed on the 4th of July.

Our website is always open! As per COVID-19 restrictions, our Geneva storefront details:

Hours: M-Sat 10am -5pm, Sun 11am – 5pm

While we don’t require a coat and tie, or even shoes :) – we do require a face mask.

To comply with social distancing mandates, we must limit guests to 6 at a time inside the store. If we are full we will ask you to sign up on our wait list and wait outside. We are asking that everyone limit their shopping time to 30 minutes so that more people have a chance to get that special stone that they need!

You can call to reserve a time slot. However, if you are late, we may need to assign your slot to a waiting guest, and you will go to the end of the list. Our phone: 630-208-6001

We are still providing prepaid order pickup at our door for orders placed the day before.

Our staff will be doing everything we can to keep our store safe and clean. We will be cleaning throughout the day and spend an hour every day after close disinfecting using various methods. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We so look forward to seeing all our friends once again!
