Our Story

Imagine this: It’s December 1985, and our very own CR Smith stumbles upon something truly extraordinary – Georgia Midnight. This gem is as magical as it sounds, containing more elements than you can imagine. But what’s even more amazing? CR’s knack for discovering Mother Nature’s best-kept secrets and turning them into dazzling works of art.

Now, let’s talk about CR’s other superpower: teaching. He’s a rockstar when it comes to passing on his knowledge. From classroom sessions to art classes, he’s inspired over 100 budding jewelers to pick, cut, and design like pros. Oh, and did we mention he’s designed over 600 settings in his lifetime? Talk about talent!

But here’s the thing about CR – he’s not just about rocks and gems. He’s a bona fide rockhound who’s been chasing Aquamarine dreams for decades. Even during his days as a fighter pilot in the US Navy, his passion for gemology burned bright. It all started with an article about the Gemmological Society of Great Britain, and the rest, as they say, is history.

So, why should you choose Prospector’s Pouch? Because here, you’re not just a customer – you’re family. Whether you’re hunting for the perfect engagement ring, celebrating a milestone, or simply looking for a little inspiration, we’ve got your back. Our collection of unique and ethically sourced jewelry is crafted with love and skill, ensuring each piece is of the highest quality and authenticity.
