Stone Tone

Final Farewell in 2015

It is with great sadness that I announce that over the coming months Picks and Stones will be taking the necessary steps to permanently close for business. For over ten years I have had the pleasure of making the best picks for some of the best guitarists in the world, amateur and professional alike. Most of those picks will outlast me many times over, and it humbles me to imagine how many musicians not yet born will hold those picks, and how much music they will continue to make.


Closing this small bussines won't happen over night, but it may happen soon. So please don't hesitate to browse our remaining stock, and if you don't see what you're lookiong for you still have time to make a Final Custom Order and get exactly what you want. If you've told your friends about us, you might want to let them know that it's now or never. If you have any questions or special requests, Contact Us and we'll be happy to assist you.


Thank your for all of your support over the years, may your Picks and Stones Gemstone Guitar Picks last you many lifetimes.

Watch videos and listen to mp3s featuring Picks and Stones Gemstone Guitar Picks.

Though they are rock hard, our picks are gentle on your strings and have a smoother attack and crisper tone than any nylon or plastic pick. The edges are rounded, and the entire pick is polished to a smooth glossy finish that stays in your fingers. Each pick is handmade and rigorously tested for quality, durability, and playability. We use only the highest quality gemstone to ensure that our guitar picks not only look like a gem but sound like one too!

Our stone picks range in thickness from 1mm to 5mm. They are crafted from primarily Brasilian Agate, with a few more limited stones featured in our Rare Picks page. We offer a wide variety of shapes and styles: choose from the familiar Traditional, Teardrop, Jazz or Tripoint styles; or try our Combo Picks: picks whose asymetrical designs combine three different striking surfaces in one convenient pick. We also specialize in Grip Picks: stone picks with specially designed grooves to enhance your grip.

What do our customers think...

"I play guitar with The Black Crowes. We’re recording and filming our new double live album and movie at Levon Helm’s barn. I gave your picks to the guys and we’re all using them! We love them! They sound so good. There is no comparison to plastic, it's amazing. The stone picks appeal to the aesthetic that I apply to my music and live my life according to. The sound of the stone pick's attack is amazing on electric and acoustic instruments. They are superior to plastic plectrums in every way. I'm hooked."

Thank you, LAD

The Ultimate substitute for the forbidden fruit of Tortoise Shell Picks.

"With these beautiful polished stone picks, the ease of playability, the quality of service, and, most importantly, the control over tone you have as a player; Why anyone chooses to stick with crappy plastic picks is beyond me. Thank you, Picks and Stones!"

"The best $25 dollars I have ever spent on anything period!"

"I've owned stone guitar picks for over 15 years, but these are by far the best I've ever seen. The quality is excellent and the finish is perfect. I highly recommend these picks."

Wow. My tone is changed completely. As soon as I got used to the pick (about 2 days)
I was acheiving the tone I had been stiving for for years.
Worth every penny.

I've used stone for 20 plus years, but none have had the bevel just right...till now! Thank you.

I didn't know what to expect from a stone pick, and spending this much on a pick was either going to be a great decision or a really bad one. Now that I've played with it a few hours, I'm delighted with the brilliant tone and wonderful resonance. It will take some getting used to, but I'm looking forward to rediscovering my guitar - this is how it's supposed to sound!

The attack is not as agressive as plastic, very smooth. Triplets are effortless. I seem to get from string to string quicker, but who knows. I was a little wary of spending twenty bucks on a pick, but there is no wear at all and after a year I still have it.
