Product Testimonials

I had Nichole create this custom Mala for me. I was experiencing difficulty with meditation. I tried numerous techniques without much success. Nicole walked me through the entire process and meaning of Mala meditation. Since I am my most peaceful on the seas, oceans, and gulfs, I asked her advise. Not only was she 100 % on spot with my custom design, she had the amazing ability of determining which stones, spacers, charm, and focal points to incorporate. I generally, cleanse my jewelry and set my own intention, but I could sense Nicole’s energy in this fabulous piece, and decided to add mine to it. It is my most magical piece of jewelry. I love her work and willingness to add her insight into her Mala’s and other magnificent pieces, so much, that I am in the process of arranging a second custom Mala.

I have been a regular customer of Zen Gems jewelry for a little over a year now. The incredible quality of Nichole’s work coupled with her beautifully kind personality keeps me coming back for more!

She makes the custom process so seamlessly effortless, from the initial consultation through to the final product.

I am one of those people that knows exactly what I want, which can be exasperating for the person trying to bring my vision into fruition. Nichole has never once made me feel rushed, or difficult. Instead she has shown nothing but patience and loving guidance as she created the perfect custom bracelets for me.

She keeps communication open throughout the process, being easy to reach and receptive to suggestions. Nichole’s creativity knows no bounds; she sent me update photos that allowed me to take my time before settling on the final look.

The many many bracelets I have received from Nichole are absolutely beautiful to look at. But more important than that for me is the energy contained within each one. I have purchased a couple of bracelets from other local vendors, and while each one was pretty in their own way, not a single one of them has had the phenomenal energy that Nichole’s has. The moment I open a package from Zen Gems Jewelry, I feel the positivity and intention that she has lovingly made each item with.

I truly can not recommend Zen Gems Jewelry enough. Whether you’re looking for a gemstone mama or bracelet for their stunning style, or if you’re looking to set intentions for meditation, or if you believe in the metaphysical properties of gemstones – whatever you’re looking for, I guarantee you will not be disappointed shopping here.

Thank you Nichole for these beautiful bracelets, and for helping me along on my journey of mindfulness, peaceful parenting and self discovery.

I first met Nichole when I received a beautiful Zen Gems rainbow hematite bracelet as a gift. I was instantly hooked! I love all of my beautiful bracelets and my malas. Nichole is a warm, friendly person who is so easily to talk to and work with. Her intuition and ability to know exactly what I need in a custom piece always amazes me. Every piece I request is always perfect, gorgeous, and far beyond my expectations.

I have three beloved custom malas, but I find myself reaching for this one, daily. As a musician, I asked Nichole to create something to help me channel my creativity, passion, and joy. She chose the perfect combination of stones and intentions, and finished it off with a sweet little guitar charm and a very special pop of bright green to match the details on my favourite guitar. I love how I feel when I wear it while creating music. I also love to use my malas to meditate, and all three of my customs have been so helpful and healing for me. I am so glad I asked Nichole to create these beautiful pieces for me.

I love my custom Mala from Zen Gems. I had some ideas about what I wanted, but also was indecisive as I always am. So I just trusted Nichole’s amazing intuition and creative judgment. Nichole took the ideas I had to the next level, it was better then I could have pictured. Every gemstone was chosen with care, every knot tied with sacred intention. It was packaged so lovely with a detailed insert on the gemstones that were chosen. Everything about the process is done with such care and you can tell when you receive your item.
