Joane’s jewels

Joane Cornell, “GLINT” is knowledgable about all gems, and designs her “GEMS” with a creative flair. I have purchased earrings,  as well as reimagined my existing earrings many times to give myself a new look. All this, thanks to Joane’s talent.


Exquisitely Sophisticated

Dear Joane,

The rings are a huge success. Edward’s comments are “exquisitely sophisticated; current, yet timeless; elegant, unique and so you (the you is me)”.

What more can I say? We are grateful to you for your creativity, enthusiasm and flexibility. Your overall knowledge of the realization of a bespoke piece of jewelry from its first drawing to the “first look” is breathtaking and inspires enormous confidence. The settings are exactly what I had hoped to achieve. I enjoy my new rings when they sparkle in the sunlight as well as under the office spotlights. I miss them when I put them away at night.

Fondly, Norma

Discovering Joane Cornell Fine Jewelry

I had the pleasure of discovering Joane Cornell Fine Jewelry/GLINT. Joane Cornell has curated an eclectic, distinctive collection for jewelry lovers who value beautiful pieces that are beautifully made.  I came away with a ring and a pair of earrings, and I plan to take advantage of Joane’s creativity in designing future pieces expressly for me.

Enjoyment for Years to Come

Recently I enlisted Joane’s expertise to repurpose two little-worn necklaces into a torsade. I’ll enjoy the new necklace for years to come. Additionally, I purchased a dramatic, statement-making tourmaline and diamond ring. I’ve never seen its like and have worn it with great pleasure. I’ll check back in to keep tabs on her unique, well-made inventory.

Feast for the Eyes

Whenever someone compliments my jewelry, it is always from Joane.  She has beautiful pieces and stands behind them.

You can select from the showcases or have Joane make something or just go into her charming boutique and look at everything-  it’s a feast for the eyes.  I have been a satisfied customer for many years.


Joane Cornell Fine Jewelry Shopping Extravaganza

Thank you for another wonderful shopping experience in your exquisite shop, Joane! What we love most about your place (apart from seeing you of course!) are the unique one-of-a-kind pieces you carry. How refreshing! Additionally, every item we have bought from you has worn extremely well. This is not only a testament to the quality of the metals and stones you use; but to the superior design and workmanship of each piece. The shop itself is lovely and inviting and it is always a delight catching up with you. Cannot wait to see you in June!

Made with heart and soul..

I’ve always said that anyone can wear mass-produced jewelry, and that’s fine, but the really special stuff is made by hand, by an inspired artist. Joane’s pieces are truly fabulous, made with heart and soul, incorporating stones of all kinds with precious metals that showcase their beauty by her talented hands.
When I wear any piece made by Joane, I feel extra-special, and I feel everyone who notices can tell my jewelry is a work of art.
It also helps to note that Joane is a wonderful woman, warm, generous, so good humored, and kind. How lucky for the Berkshires (and our neighbors) to have such a nice person, who is incredibly gifted, offering an incredible array of gorgeous wearable pieces of art!

A Delight to Work With

While on vacation, I came upon Joane’s shop, and was attracted to a very unusual and striking ring, and also to Joane’s easy style. After I decided to buy the ring, I worked with Joane to design a pair of earrings to go with the ring. She was a delight to work with, and I am enjoying my new one of a kind, stylish and elegant new jewelry. I will definitely contact Joane when I want something new!


Treasure forever

How astonishing that such a talented designer can take an antique brooch left to me by my grandmother and transform it into a stunning necklace. I can now enjoy wearing this beauty for any occasion. Thank-you Joane for creating this memorable piece that I will treasure forever.

Truly yours. Rkj

HUGE hit!

Hi Joane,

just wanted you to know that your ring was a HUGE hit. Andrea started to cry and hugged me for 30 minutes. The idea that I found a ring that encompasses stones that signify strength and healing and shaped into a ring for her ‘journey’ was…..well, she has not take it off!

Constantly Amazes

I’ve known Joane for many years now…she constantly amazes me with her innovative, creative, and timeless jewelry…great therapy whether window shopping or collaborating on a custom piece.

..Fantastic to see!

Joane is a perfectionist. Her creativity and attention to detail shows up in every piece she makes – whether it is $500 or $10,000. I have purchased numerous pieces at different price points and each one is made meticulously – with the highest quality metals and stones she can possibly find in a price range the customer is comfortable with. Joane takes tremendous pride in her work and wants her customers to walk away loving their gems. She sources stones from all over the world and her collection is fantastic to see! I love all of my pieces and always look forward to seeing Joane’s new creations. Thank you, Joane!


Thrilled with my purchase..

Joane Cornell is a talented jewelry designer with beautiful, unique pieces. I fell in love with a ring in her store and am thrilled with my purchase.

She LOVES them!

My husband, Alan and I walked into Glint when we were taking a stroll through Chatham. Joane’s window with her creative pieces attracted us and drew us into the store. The first thing I fell in love with was Joane, herself…a warm and welcoming hostess! Her jewelry is exquisite and incredibly unique…definitely ‘one of a kind’ creations. Alan surprised me with a gorgeous necklace and we just sent our daughter three separate necklaces that stack so that she can wear them either separately or all together. She LOVES them!
Go visit…you will not be disappointed!


Lovely work.

Joane, I wear my bracelet every day and love its fit, colors, design and beauty. Thank you again for your lovely work.


Fabulous.. something special!

Gwen is always wearing her ring! We both really enjoyed meeting you on a personal and professional basis. Your work is fabulous and fits Gwen very well. We will certainly be back and hopefully bring some friends. You bring something special!
Thanks, –


A Daily “Go To”

The earrings I purchased just recently are my daily “go to” unless I need something silver. We were recently in California for a wedding, and I didn’t take any other earrings for a five-day adventure!

Something just right for me

I discovered Joane Cornell/GLINT on-line, and I honestly cannot say enough about this warm, talented designer and artist! After a few email exchanges about an aquamarine pendant I hoped she would create for me, Joane was out hunting for the best possible stones and sending me videos of what she’d found. She wasn’t satisfied until she’d found just the right one. She was funny and gracious, and enthusiastically agreed when I asked if she could incorporate a second stone. She sent numerous sketches, and once we agreed on a final design, she kept me informed every step of the way. Yesterday, I received my pendant: an 18k gold bezel set teardrop cabochon aquamarine stone with a smaller faceted emerald (my two daughter’s birthstones). Words cannot do the pendant justice, from the quality of the stones and craftsmanship to the heft of the gold. More important is the obvious care that Joane put into making something just right for me.

Delight and Impress

Joane has a fine eye for design as well as the talent to realize those designs in her work. She is dedicated to producing wearable, beautifully crafted pieces that will delight and impress.


I was lucky enough to stumble upon..

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Joane Cornell’s shop in Lenox, Mass many years ago. Once I entered, I was mesmerized by her incredibly beautiful and creative designs. I found a pair of earrings that I loved but wasn’t crazy about the direction of the stone and asked if she could reconfigure the design to my specifications. OF COURSE, she said. Within a week, the earrings were delivered to my home in NYC. She was in touch with me along the way and sent me a photo to approve prior to mailing. I held on to her information and about a year ago I contacted Joane (now in Chatham, NY) to see if she could reproduce a necklace by a well-known commercial jewelry designer in time for my birthday. OF COURSE, she said. We had multiple conversations over the phone and over email. Joane was determined to make sure I was getting exactly what I had asked for. The final product was gorgeous and truly a work of art. Her eye for detail and her commitment to make sure that she is satisfying her clients every step of the way, is what will surely have me returning again and again.

Gorgeous times infinity!

I am truly out of my mind- the GORGEOUS TIMES INFINITY cuff arrived today safe and sound! I am sure you hear this all of the time- it is one thing to see pictures and another entirely to see such an exquisite work of art in the flesh. It is stunning.

It was a pleasure

Visiting Joane’s lovely shop, Glint, was quite a treat! The shop is filled with Joane’s exquisitely designed and unique handmade jewelry. Joane is an artist who creates sophisticated and elegant yet simple pieces that enhance any outfit or occasion. It was a pleasure working with Joane, who has a keen eye for picking pieces that complement an individual’s style. I love the earrings and ring I purchased, which make me feel special when working from home or going out for the night! I am looking forward to my next visit to Glint!

Engagement Ring

Hi Joane!

I was going to get this for myself as a gift, as you well know, when I reached out to you two months ago, and yesterday my boyfriend, now fiancé!, proposed to me!

He truly pulled off a great surprise for me. Watermelon tourmaline is my favorite stone. It is so much more beautiful in person.

We both had a beautiful experience from the moment I emailed you 2 months ago, to Sean secretly reaching out to you as well.

Looking forward to purchasing a piece made by you myself as I’m completely in love with everything on your website.
I am so happy to own this piece from your beautiful collection I have been eyeing it for such a long time now. It was meant to be!

Thank you so much for having this beautiful ring that united us in love.

Exceptional Work

Thank you, Joane, for your exceptional work on my pearl pendant. I really love it.
Thank you also for being so fun to do business with – helpful, engaging and not pushy. I look forward to future collaborations!
