Each year Purple Mountain Jewelry creates a special and unique custom piece for the local women’s charity, Tri Lakes Women’s Club.
Please consider joining us at the Harvesting Hope event on September 21st at Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur. The proceeds of their annual event benefit local charities. For more information on the event please visit their website: tlwc.net
This year’s piece is a pear shaped Morganite set in Continuum sterling silver, plated with 14kt rose gold and accented by tapered sizes of AA white sapphires. The earrings are sterling silver with white sapphires.
“Creating jewelry that starts a conversation.”
One of the things we enjoy the most is celebrating with families. Whether it is a new life, an existing life or the memory of a life.
We can recreate your loved one’s fingerprint, footprint or paw print and create a pendant, keychain, golf marker, bracelet, ring…almost anything you can think of. Urn markers are also available. Please stop in and let us know how we could help you celebrate a life.
Change in all things is good. (Aristotle) Recreating is king here at Purple Mountain Jewelry.
Many of our customers are those who have special pieces with LOTS of memories who want to re-create a way to enjoy and recall those people or events in their lives. In this “before and after” example, we took two previously loved rings and created two new vintage-inspired rings using some of the diamonds and a unique pendant centered around the large marquise diamond.
“Creating jewelry that starts a conversation.”

For the last year we have been featuring beautiful crosses created by a local artist. Don Johns is a talented woodworker, who selects each piece of wood with great care. Woods used include walnut, burl, maple, mesquite and others. Don lets the characteristics of each piece dictate the final size and shape, no two ever being exactly the same. Pieces that would be considered “flawed” by others become works of art as Don lovingly fills cracks & splits with crushed turquoise to create each “masters” piece. We have included a biography that was written by his wife, please take a moment to enjoy the biography and don’t forget to come take a look at we have in the store so you can enjoy his craftsmanship as much as we do.
Don Johns Biography
Celebrate those special people in life by allowing us to create their actual footprint or fingerprint in gold or silver. Our dog tags, pendants and rings can be created in gold or silver depending upon your preference or budget. Initials, names and birthstones can be added if you wish. Stop by and work with our design team to create the special gift that the wearer will ALWAYS cherish. Don’t forget about nose prints for your favorite pet.
We would like to give our Congratulations to another happy couple, and tell them thank you for allowing us to be apart of this wonderful occasion. Below is their picture and a little something they said about us.
“I would like to thank Purple Mountain Jewelry in Monument Colorado for their personal service and guidance in finding the perfect ring. They really helped me make things perfect.” — Aaron
Congratulations Aaron and Deb!!
At Purple Mountain Jewelry we love that we have the opportunity to help with such special occasions. We really enjoy helping our clients start from the very beginning and picking the perfect stone, then finding the perfect setting for that stone.
This week we received some New Vintage Whimsey Rings in stock we have a supplier on the east coast that we get them from. Here is some information about him.
The vintage pieces offered by Purple Mountain Jewelry are not cast in-house like most of our designs. The gemstones are faceted in-house and the pieces are assembled in-house. The castings are, however, created in Harrisonburg, Virginia, The vintage piece you have purchased originated from a private collection of exquisitely crafted hubs, blocks of steel with intricate designs hand-carved into the top surface dating back to the 1800s. There are Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco & Retro Art Designs periods represented in the collection. We wish to honor the collector, the collection itself, and the gifted craftspeople who came before us and are such an important part of our American heritage
We have created a one of a kind bracelet that embodies the essence of Colorado. It has a Colorado Lace Amethyst that came from The Last Chance Mine in Creede, this is Colorado’s only Amethyst mine. The stone is gently covered by an sterling silver aspen leaf to secure it into a Sterling Silver Cuff style bracelet. This one of a kind piece was handcrafted in our Monument Studio, if you can’t wait to get a piece of Colorado come on in and see us.
