History | Your Story

Every piece of jewelry has a story; it is received, or purchased, or cherished with emotion. Jewelry isn’t just something we wear to dress up for a special occasion, but a symbol of the memory of the moment it became yours; a 16th birthday, your graduation, a just-because-you’re-my-friend gift from a friend, or the ever romantic engagement and wedding ring given by your special someone at a very special moment.

Vintage jewelry has been a passion of ours for this reason. We love to imagine what story might be behind the treasures we find, and try our best to keep the stories going by restoring and renewing the life in such beautiful pieces. It is our hope that these can continue to create memories for you, and that their story will continue with your story.

Ruby & Juniper is a family owned and operated jewelry boutique based in Sacramento, California. We are a husband and wife team who have been in the jewelry business together since 2008!

Thanks for supporting our shop!

Meet the Owners

Jennifer | Owner, Curator, Shipper

I am a romantic, and love the idea that one day, long ago, someone else wore this piece of jewelry and cherished it as an heirloom passed down, or a gift from a loved one. I carefully curate the items in my shop so they can continue to be treasured!

Angelo | Owner, GIA Graduate Gemologist, Appraiser

Esteemed local jeweler since 2003, and GIA Graduate Gemologist. As a designer and jewelry expert, I use my skills to help Jennifer find the best quality items to sell in our shop.

It All Started with a Ring…

He popped the question with a ring that he had designed himself, featuring a gorgeous diamond that he had hand picked just for me. My hands jumped up to cover the excited grin on my face as the tears began to flow. Despite the dim lighting in the restaurant, there wasn’t an eye in that room who didn’t notice the “moment” we were having at the table in the corner. I had to catch my breath to be able to choke out the word “yes” as he nervously waited on his knee for my answer. He always reminds me that it felt like forever. The whole room of fellow diners erupted in cheers and congratulations and couple after couple came over to us and told us their own stories of love.
