About Us
From Heartbreak to Entrepreneurship!

Desert Bling was born out of sheer personal necessity. During the precious metals boom, I was hired by a company that knew of my love for Native American jewelry and precious gemstones. My job was to appraise and evaluate gold and sterling silver jewelry that had been sold off as “scrap”. What I saw was soul crushing. Beautiful creations, some over 100 years old, were on their way to a refinery because their owners either inherited the pieces and did not appreciate them, or sadly more often than not, simply needed the money during that harsh economic time period. I couldn’t bear watching so many incredible pieces of jewelry, many from award-winning designers, being destroyed and found myself spending most of my paycheck “rescuing” as many of them as I could from the fiery furnace. And so the journey began.......

With so many pieces accumulating, I knew there had to be some way of finding these treasures a new home. The thought of becoming a business owner had never once crossed my mind before; but with the encouragement of my wonderful husband and lifelong best friend Perry, I took the leap of faith to open Desert Bling. Now my only regret is not doing this decades sooner. My father had told me many, many years ago “If you do what you love, it isn’t a job” and those words could never be more true. The adventure of researching each newly acquired item and the subsequent knowledge I gain is priceless. I personally examine each item for authenticity, quality and condition. The enjoyment that I receive from uniting a special piece of jewelry to it’s new owner is an experience beyond words. Whether it’s adding a special piece to one’s collection, presenting that perfect gift to a loved one, or simply adding a little extra “bling” to one’s life, I share in the joy experienced by each satisfied customer. Beautiful jewelry is my passion and I look forward to sharing that passion with you.

We guarantee the authenticity of all our items; every piece of jewelry is tested for its precious metal purity and all gemstones are confirmed through our Presidium Gem Indicator. All of our vintage estate items, excluding new old stock, are pre-owned; therefore, there may be minor signs of wear commensurate with age. However, any significant flaws will be clearly disclosed in both the description and photographs.
