Welcome to Jewelry by Da’oud. We are a small company of devotees to giving you great service and a beautiful wearable product to be savored for many years to come. Da’oud is a perfectionist, and gives each and all orders his full attention.

I use only secondary source and/or recycled sources of Gold and Diamonds in my work. I use refined metal originating from jewelers, manufacturers, secondary market jewelry and placer gold from individual miners in northern California. My diamonds come from secondary market and conflict-free origin sources. I am very conscious of the karmic implications of pollution and human misery associated with large corporations mining gold and the problems with sources of diamonds that come from conflict nations. I wish to keep the energy of your rings as pristine as possible.
This site is set up to give the price for the metal setting, not the price of gemstones or diamonds. Contact us about which stone you would like to see set into the piece and we will get back to you with the prices. There is such a variety of stones, quality and prices, we await input from you for your unique setting. We can get most any stone you might want, including synthetics as well as natural stones.
For ordering, please email or call to tell us that an order is being placed, and I’ll write up your invoice and send you a pdf for your approval. If you order from the site, please note that the shipping amount needs to be calculated individually for each order’s value and will exceed the amount stated on the order page.
We have recently updated our Facebook page as well and will hopefully be starting to present our current in stock collections (the pieces you see displayed at Festivals). ‘Like’ us on facebook to see photos, updates and even info on the jewelry and gemstones! We are now also on Instagram as well! You can find us @jewelrybydaoud.
I have a blog, with a few recent postings that may be of interest. I wish to use this format to expand on subjects such as what motivates and inspires my work and fun things that come with my travels. Soon to come will be information on gemstone properties as well. Stay tuned!
I offer great service and meticulous detail to your individualized crafted wedding rings and accessories. Please allow me time for this exacting work. Union and Partner rings for non-traditional and/or gay and lesbian relationships are available here. The symbolism and stories are universal; Love is the common thread.
