For 20+ years now - since 1987 FACETS has catered to amateur and experienced rock hounds, gem cutters, collectors, jewelry craftsmen and interior decorators. Grumpy Bear has left the building and FACETS is now once again Lincoln county's knowledgeable, friendly,, locally owned and operated jewelry and lapidary supply house with a wonderful, knowledgeable staff. We stress the importance of both quality in merchandise as well as customer service, which is our main priority. As members of the Oregon State, Jewelers of America, Inc. trust is an essential element in their business and FACETS clients still return for their services from distant homes of Hawaii as well as throughout the mainland! FACETS moved its headquarters in 2007 to this new location in Newport, where their lapidary workshop is operational on site.
