Welcome to Rosey Skye, a haven to rest your eyes on natural fine minerals and revive your spirit in poetic design.
I am Patricia Lauritzen, fine jewelry designer and company founder. My art nouveau collection of coastal and garden-inspired pieces incorporate recycled pure gold and fair-mined natural gemstones.
My first design started with a light pink morganite that my father gave me which I made into a delicate necklace. Though he is no longer with us, I cherish having a gift from him to carry with me, especially at times when I wish I could still hear his advice.
Creating something of value due to sentiment and rarity made me realize that jewelry could be so much more meaningful. I decided to design a small collection of fine jewelry that celebrates the minerals of the earth and builds a transparent supply chain that lifts artisanal miners around the world.
My mission resonated and I was awarded a scholarship from the Gemological Institute of America. I am a member of the San Francisco Gem & Mineral Society, the Women's Jewelry Association, Ethical Metalsmiths, and the American Gem Trade Association.
I live on the California coast near Half Moon Bay with my husband (the most enthusiastic biologist you'll ever meet) and our two daughters, for whom the company is named.
My values center on fair trade that lifts small communities and the protection of the environment. A portion of my proceeds are donated to non-profits dedicated to caring for families in need and restoring our ocean habitats.
