Welcome to the world of Michael Sherman Jewelry Designs.

Our studio/gallery was established in Carmel, California in 1972.  Michael has built his reputation on his artistry and craftsmanship.  Old World insights combined with contemporary design have been his hallmark.  His professional art background has kept his jewelry on the leading edge.  We have always been involved in making sure that our sources are conflict-free and environmentally-aware.  Care and attention are given to each handcrafted piece as well as to every client.

A visit to our studio/gallery will be a treat that you will always remember.  Michael can also apply his design talents and his experience to recreate a jewel or to design a special piece for you.

Michael’s principles of Old World service and quality are reflected in the store itself.  His staff includes a full-time resident gemologist to ensure that only top-quality stones are used.  A written appraisal and a photo accompany every piece of jewelry.  His experienced sales associates will provide perfect service, whether you are in the store or out of town.


A visit to our sunlit studio/gallery, which overlooks the gardens of The Barnyard, is a unique Carmel experience.


The creating of handcrafted jewelry is a fascinating art.  Let us take you through some of the steps in that process.
