Welcome to the Chemistry Family!

Join us on our journey to celebrate the finest in hand-made and unique jewelry from around the world!


Our story

Since 1998 we have been a local, family-owned and operated business. The gallery changed ownership June 2009 when Christine Barthmus purchased the store after managing it for 7 successful years. In December 2016 the store was rebranded by Christine and Michael Barthmus and Chemistry Jewelry was born!

 "This is an expression of my love for jewelry, and my desire to support the artists who honor the ancient traditions of jewelry craftsmanship, producing a hand-crafted piece of art which cannot be replicated by a machine. One that stands out through its timeless design and attention to detail. I travel the country to seek out the artists who have chosen this path and comb through their amazing collections to select the pieces that represent my interpretation the best. Please join me!"

~ Christine Barthmus, Owner


Chemistry Jewelry celebrates the timeless tradition of composing natural elements into wearable works of art. We pride ourselves in representing exclusive lines handmade by some of the best artisans in their field.

We believe in jewelry for everyone and for every occasion!
