Beads and handmade amulets have been used in every culture all over the world throughout history. I enjoy uncovering the story that goes along with each object. Symbolism, gemstone properties, history, mythology, folklore... all of these elements come together to make each piece special.
Sunstones Gems & Jewelry opened in 2006. We are located in the village of Sechelt on British Columbia’s beautiful Sunshine Coast… a scenic 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver.
We specialize in unique gemstones, pendants, pearls & jewelry making components which are sourced from around the world. We strive to keep our inventory fresh, inspiring and surprising. Our mission is to offer our customers a wide selection of quality products at reasonable prices and to go beyond the usual “bead store” offerings.
We have visitors from all over the world coming through our doors each year and have had many of them tell us that our selection is among the best they’ve seen.
