Mined and Found fine jewelry rainbow gemstone layered necklaces

 Exquisitely handcrafted in Connecticut and New York, Mined + Found is a celebration of color and craft. An homage to the extraordinary art of fine jewelry, our jewelry is designed with joy and crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Each piece is finished by hand, pairing traditional methods of craftsmanship with carefully selected materials that are both time-honored and vibrantly unique to our atelier.

Mined + Found showcases the beauty of precious materials in unexpected and contrasting pairings. The paper-white glow of pearls and vibrant Rainbow Silk®. The soft sheen of smooth cabochons and the fiery glitter of opals. The shapeless warmth of polished gold and faceted fancy-cut gems.


Launched in 2020, Mined + Found has quickly become a go-to for seasoned fine jewelry collectors. Jenn's signature fusion of texture and color with a seemingly effortless air has been featured by multiple industry publications and influencers.


Jenn’s irrepressible love for color suffuses Mined + Found. Vibrant, hand-selected gemstones glow on luxurious threads of Rainbow Silk®. From a single, extraordinary stone to a strand of polished beads, Jenn transforms extraordinary materials into distinctive fine jewelry.

 Designer of Mined and Found, Jenn Rachinsky Breznen


Designer Jenn Rachinsky Breznen arrived at fine jewelry design after decades of exposure to the world of fine jewelry, watches and gemstones. As a child, her grandfather's watchmaking bench was a favorite place to play, his spare pocket watch hands and components transformed into charms and other jewelry designs. Her Mother, a collector of mineral specimens, would allow her to tag along on trips to gem & mineral shows. Windowsills became filled with small crystal specimens, and her love of gemstones grew.

"I remember my Mom allowing me to pick out my first piece of 'real' jewelry at a trade show. It was a silver ring with a dome of filigree and a rose quartz center. It was the prettiest, vibrant pink... at that moment, my eight year old self knew that jewelry would in some way be an important part of my life".

After over a decade working as a retail store's fine jewelry & watch buyer, Jenn set out to fuse her love of gemstones with her passion for vibrant color and knowledge of fine jewelry tradition & technique. Mined + Found had been unearthed.

Jenn's reverence for fine jewelry is juxtaposed with a modern, often unexpected design perspective. With close attention to the unique qualities of each jewel, Jenn’s designs bring out the character of her luxurious materials. At the heart of Mined + Found is Jenn’s personal relationship with her atelier. Embracing design tradition, Jenn hand-sketches each piece before her team of skilled artisans bring her distinctive designs to life.
