Debra Miller, Del Ray Florida
I absolutely loved working with Jen and her amazing business Ounce of Salt Jewelry.
Jen is so friendly and professional and made the entire process so pleasant and fun.
She had great suggestions and encouraged me to be open minded to new pieces and designs.
We had a consultation via zoom and communicated easily through emails and texts. Her website is also great and very user friendly. I received amazing, personalized service.
The earrings I bought from Jen are gorgeous and classy. I love all of her pieces, which are also elegant and timeless. I know I will buy more jewelry from Ounce of Salt Jewelry in the future. Amazing business, beautiful merchandise and fantastic customer service!

At first, I had no idea where to start looking for the perfect engagement ring for my amazing girlfriend, now fiancé. Once I was introduced to Jen through my manager, who had an awesome experience picking out her own ring, I was eager to get the process started. I was hoping it would be easy and not stressful, and wow was I right. Jen made the process incredibly relaxed, we figured out what I really wanted for my girlfriend together in regard to quality and price and she educated me on everything I didn’t know about diamonds. This helped immensely in picking out the perfect diamond for my perfect partner. Without surprise she absolutely loves the ring and we are now in the process of picking out the wedding bands for our special day. At this point, I don’t know where else I would turn for this kind of quality and trust coming from Jen at OzOfSalt.
Linda Clarke, Seattle Washington
I’m not a fan of chain store jewelry so I was thrilled to find Ounce of Salt Jewelry. Jen’s designs are beautiful, elegant and original. The photos, videos and information on the website are thorough and easily accessible. The customer service I received was outstanding. Jen answered my questions and confirmed details from the start. She kept me apprised as my pieces were being crafted and delivered. I am very happy with my jewelry purchase and look forward to ordering my next piece of beautiful jewelry from Ounce of Salt.

I found Jen on Instagram and decided to reach out to her after liking her jewelry pieces and her personal voice that she shares with her followers. I asked her to custom-make a special necklace for me. The entire process (virtual), from initial communication on Zoom to final delivery, was flawless. She’s 100% committed to making sure that her customers are happy, and she’s very transparent and communicative throughout the custom design process. I’m very happy with the final product and think Jen is stellar at what she does. I also think her pricing is very reasonable for the service and product she delivers. Highly recommended!.
Conan Cotrell, Manhattan Beach
“I wanted to surprise my wife with something meaningful for her milestone birthday. Not only did Jen honor my budget, but she delivered more value than I would have thought was possible. She saved me a ton of research time. My wife was blown-away with her tennis bracelet and I couldn’t be happier with the service Jen provided.”
Paula Davis, Manhattan Beach
“Jen is a complete professional with immense knowledge of the jewelry business and impeccable taste, but her warm, easy-going manner also makes her clients feel that she’s a trusted friend. She makes great suggestions and shares honest opinions. She helped my husband pick out a beautiful necklace for me, guided me in finding a perfect necklace for my 50th birthday and even discovered ways to make some of my old pieces feel fresh and stylish again. I have super simple taste and a limited budget and never imagined I’d be one of those people who had a “personal jeweler” but I’d never buy another piece without seeking Jen’s help.”
Tina Gibson, Dallas
“I’m very thankful to have found Ounce of Salt Jewelry! Finding an independent jeweler can be intimidating, but Jen eliminated the guesswork for me. As soon as we spoke on the phone, I knew I could trust her. She reassured me about the custom sizing and quality of the diamonds. Jen remained in constant communication throughout the process. My bracelet came as promised and it’s more beautiful than I imagined. We’ve already started working on a new custom design! “
Tracy Deen, Los Angeles
“Easy, fun, exciting, remarkable, and fabulous are the words that come to mind when thinking about my experience of working with Ounce of Salt!”
“My fiancé first worked with Jen Oliak to purchase my engagement ring, and we worked with her on our wedding bands. Her extraordinary wealth of knowledge about diamonds and her attention to detail enabled us to end up with the most beautiful rings, exactly what I had envisioned. Jen made sure the process was smooth and stress-free. She truly exceeded our expectations. We’re forever grateful to Jen Oliak and we highly recommend her.”
