Temple stones from the LDS Nigeria Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Aba Nigeria is actually the second stone after the Original Nauvoo temple stone. A member of my father’s ward worked on the temple and brought my father the stone so that he could make jewelry for his daughters. We always love that the next stone my father used was from a small but significant temple in Nigeria.
Temple stones from the LDS Apia Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
We have had a few stones from Apia Samoa. The current piece was given to us by some friends who worked their during the original construction. She brought it to us while we were at Simple Treasures in Farmington, Utah. It is a fun story to tell people we got our Samoa stone in Farmington, Utah.
Temple stones from the LDS Asuncion Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
We are always searching for temple stones from Central and South America. We were very grateful to have been given this stone that was used during the construction of the the Asuncion Paraguay temple. This stone was given to us from one of our many friends who work on temples. It is very beautiful.
Temple stones from the LDS Baton Rouge Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Baton Rouge Louisianna stone came to us from a friend who served her mission in Baton Rouge. A visiting General Authority gave each missionary a broken piece of tile from the temple. She kept hers for years until she shared some with us so we can make her beautiful jewelry with it that she could love and use every day.
Temple stones from the LDS Boise Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Our Boise Idaho stone came to us from a friend who also collects temples stones. While attending a garage sale, she found a square piece of tile that had been converted into numbered artwork. The stone was removed during the remodeling of the Boise temple and was once a part of the actual temple.
Temple stones from the LDS Boston Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
We love the Boston Massachusetts stone. It is very unique and beautiful. The stone itself is used in the landscaping walls around the temple and is easily recognizable by those that have visited the temple. Again, a new friend gave us this piece that was given to her by her father who picked it up during the original construction of the temple.
Temple stones from the LDS Bountiful Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Bountiful Utah temple stone has a fun story to it. When they were building the temple, they found that the holes that they had left in the temple for the beautiful stained glass were too small. To fix the issue, they had to trim stone out of the temple to make room for the windows. Our stone is that same stone that was removed to accommodate the windows.
Temple stones from the LDS Brigham City Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
So, not all temples are made of stone. The Brigham City temple is an example of the precast concrete the Church uses for some of it’s temples. In this scenario, we use stone that is inside the temple. Our stone from this temple is from a scrap piece of the Turkish marble used on the floor of the temple. We only had a small piece so hopefully we find more so we do not run out of this beautiful temple.
Temple stones from the LDS Buenos Aires Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
As you might guess, we have lots of contacts who are affiliated with the construction of temples. The Buenos Aires stone is from one of them and is scrap left over from the original construction. When cut up, it looks an awful lot like the Salt Lake temple stone so we have to be extra careful with this amazing stone not to get them mixed up.
This is another stone that we got from a missionary who was serving in Brisbane at the time of the construction. It was one of several pieces of scrap stone that was given to missionaries who were there on site. It spent many years in the bottom of a drawer before we found him and he offered the stone to us. We are glad to have it to share with others.
Sometimes, stone is given out to neighboring wards during the construction of the temple. The Calgary Alberta stone is one such example. One of our dear friends in Calgary had this piece of stone laying in her flower bed during one of our visits. Her daughter (and all the young women in the Stake) had been given a chunk of scrap stone as a thank you for helping to clean up the temple site during the construction. We find stone in the oddest places sometimes.
One of my favorite temple stone stories that is too long for this post. However, this stone comes from a home in Cardston that was built with the same stone as the temple. Apparantly, the original owner loved the temple so much that he had the Church bring in an extra amount of the white granite stone from British Columbia so that he could use it in his home that he built at the same stone. How we found it is yet another story in itself.
Temple stones from the LDS Cebu City Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
A good friend gave me the stone from Cebu City Philippines that he got from a business trip to the Philippines. It was a broken piece of stone that was once a part of temple and was given to him by someone who worked on the repair. We find a lot of stone this way as these broken pieces are oftern thrown away.
Temple stones from the LDS Cedar City Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Leftover from the original construction, the Cedar City Utah stone is a scrap piece of the trim stone used in the Celestial room. We have several different stones from this temple but are currently using this one because of it’s amazing crème color and it’s beauty.
Temple stones from the LDS Ciudad Juarez Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
This was our second stone from Mexico, the Ciudad Juarez Mexico stone and was given to us by friends whose parents served in the temple. Like a lot of our stone, this is just a
broken piece of stone from the floor that was collected during the construction.
We are not the only people that collect temple stones out there. The Columbia River Washington stone was given to us by one of our collector friends who helped us get started. To be honest, I had never heard of this temple or knew where it was located. After we had it cut, I was contacted by a lady who was looking for this particular stone. I had never been asked for it until I had it. We were happy to share this stone that was so important to her. Sometimes, we discover the stone before the need.
Temple stones from the LDS Colonia Juarez Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Our first Mexican temple stone is also our first brilliant white temple stone. Given to us by a friend whose family helped (as the entire community did) with the original construction, it is an amazing stone. Although the same type of stone has been used in several temples, this piece is from Colonia Juarez Chihuahua Mexico temple.
Temple stones from the LDS Detroit Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Detroit Michigan stone came to us from a friend on a mission to declutter her home. Having been given several piece by her son who worked on the original temple construction, she decided that they should be used instead of collecting dust in her basement. We love it when people decide to share their stone so that it can be repurposed and shared with others who love the temple.
Temple stones from the LDS Frankfurt Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
We looked forever for the Frankfurt Germany stone. A good friend and old neighbor helped us out with an introduction to a friend of his that had served in the area during the original construction of the temple. As a missionary, he was given this piece of temple stone by a local member as a souvenier of his time in the area. We are so grateful for those that share their stone with us.
Temple stones from the LDS Fresno Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Fresno California stone is another example of a stone that was carried around for years until it founds it home with us. Given to us by a friend that lived near the temple during the construction, this piece of stone tile was saved from being thrown away in hopes it could be turned into something useful. We are grateful that she deemed our jewelry worthy to use this beautiful stone from an amazing temple.
Temple stones from the LDS Gila Valley Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
My son Craig served a large part of his mission in Gila Valley so the Gila Valley stone was very special to us. This stone was once a part of the trim that goes around the floor of the temple. While this is technically a man-made stone, it still retains some of the features that makes this stone very beautiful.
Temple stones from the LDS Gilbert Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Our Gilbert Arizona stone is used as the trim around the floor of the temple. We had a very difficult time cutting this stone and getting it to polish nicely. We took comfort in our plight after speaking with a temple worker who told us that that particular stone takes hours each week to keep it polished in its actual use as the trim around the temple floor. I guess it is just a “feature” of this stone.
Temple stones from the LDS Helsinki Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Another gift from our collector friend, we actually have two stones left over from the construction of the Helsinki Finland temple. The whiter version is stone used in temple itself while the darker stone is from the wall surrounding the temple. They are both amazing so I could not resist cutting both into cabochons for our jewelry.
Temple stones from the LDS Hong Kong Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
We never thought we would actually get stone from the Hong Kong temple. This stone was a gift from some of our friends who work on temples and is very beautiful. The story behind the construction of this temple is amazing. We love having it in our shop!
Temple stones from the old LDS  Idaho Falls Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The stone from the temple is the beautiful white granite. It is used in the baptistery and is the only white stone in the temple. It is a piece that was left over from the original construction of the temple.
Temple stones from the LDS Jordan River Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
This stone was our most challenging to find. We live only a few miles from the Jordan River temple but it took us three years to find the stone. We had stone from Nigeria but could not find stone from the temple down the street. This stone is actually from the new renovation and is the Turkish marble currently used on the third floor of the temple.
Temple stones from the LDS Kansas City Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry

The Kansas City stone was another of our first few temple stones. It was given to us as a gift from a friend who had a relative that worked on the original construction of this temple. Our piece is leftover from the construction but is still a beautiful stone.
Temple stones from the LDS Kirkland Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
This is our only temple stone that is actually quarry stone. This stone is from the same quarry and is merely representative of the stone used in the Kirtland temple. Since the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not own this building yet, we do not want to risk any legal action from its current owner. However, this temple is so important to our history that we wanted it represented in our temple stone selection.
Temple stones from the LDS Laie Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
We have had a few pieces of the beautiful Laie Hawaii stone that we have used in our shop. This stone was given to us by friends who also collect temple stones. It was actually once a part of the temple and was removed during the renovation a few years back.
Temple stones from the LDS Las Vegas Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
This amazing stone from the Las Vegas temple is one of our favorites. The scrap piece from the floor of the temple has some very unique and beautiful colors that make it perfect for the area. Such a beautiful example of a rose amongst the thoroften associate with Las Vegas. It is a great tribute to the dedicated Saints of the area.
Temple stones from the LDS Logan Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
This is the Logan Utah temple stone? One of our most beautiful temple stones and one that oftenrequires a second look at the temple to identify. Our stone is the brownish purple stone that is used as an accent stone on the outside of the temple. If you are looking for it, you cannot miss it!
Temple stones from the LDS Louisville Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Louisville Kentucky stone was given to us by a friend who lived near the temple. She loved the temple a great deal and asked one of the workers for a piece of a small pile of broken tile that was being repaired in the temple that day. She was generously given a piece that she eventually shared with us.
Temple stones from the LDS Lubbock Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Lubbock temple stone comes from the original construction of the temple. We were given the stone by a family member of one of the artists that painted Some of the murals in this beautiful temple. This stone was a core sample removed from the temple to make way for other parts to be placed.
Temple stones from the LDS Manila Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Manila Philippines stone was came from a broken piece of handrail in the temple that was repaired. A friend of ours visited the temple during a business trip and was given this beautiful stone by a temple worker. Such beautiful stones are used in our temples.
Temple stones from the LDS Manti Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The “oolite” limestone of the Manti temple is one our simplest but most beautiful temple stones. Made of limestone, the temple is always subject to repair from weather damage over the years. Our stone was removed during one of those repairs and given to us by one of our friends who was present during the repair.
Temple stones from the LDS Memphis Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Our Memphis Tennessee stone was once a part of the temple and was removed during the recent renovation. We had the opportunity to see some of the pictures of this renovation and are amazed at the level of reconstruction it has required.
Temple stones from the LDS Meridian Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
A left over and broken piece of stone from the floor of the Meridian Idaho temple, our stone reminds us that all stone used in the temple is beautiful. A gift from a friend who visited the temple during the constuction, we are grateful to have it in our shop and to have friends that think of us in their travels.
Temple stones from the LDS Mexico City Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Another temple stone that we searched long and hard for is the Mexico City Mexico stone. The piece used in our shop is leftover from the new renovation of the temple. We originally had stone from the old floor of the temple but concrete and pebble stone does not cut up into cabochons very nicely.
Temple stones from the LDS Monticello Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Monticello Utah stone is another example of how we find temple stones. This stone was made with pieces from the original construction of the temple that were cut into small squares and given to the local primary children as a souvenir of the temple construction.
We love this beautiful temple! Our Mount Timpanogos Utah stone is leftover material from the original construction and given to us by friends who worked on the temple.
Our most popular stone, the Original Nauvoo temple stone comes from one of several pieces collected by my father during his visits and missionary service in Nauvoo. Half of the city of Nauvoo is made from stone from this destroyed temple and the stone itself is actually quite common. However, making it into beautiful jewelry is our niche and the foundation of Nauvoo Remembered – Temple Stone Jewelry.
Temple stones from the new LDS Nauvoo Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Since the original Nauvoo temple quarry is under water, the stone for the new Nauvoo temple actually came from a quarry South Carolina.

Thanks to our new friends who made this stone possible to be a part of the collection.

We offer two stones from the Ogden temple. Our “old” stone comes from the entryway floor of the original precast concrete temple while the “new” stone was removed from the temple itself during the construction itself to make room for the Angel Moroni to be placed on it sphere.
Temple stones from the old LDS Ogden Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry


While we used to use stone from the outside of the temple, we ran out so we switched to stone from the inside of the temple. The beautiful marble stone from Greece looks great in our settings. The piece we use was once a part of the floor and was removed during a repair.
This was actually the third stone my father found. It is scrap left over from the construction and was given to us by a friend who worked on the temple.

The Rome stone has been very popular in our store as of late. We have had it for several years but it was not as wanted as it is now since the temple has been dedicated.

Temple stones from the LDS Redlands Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry

Temple stones from the LDS Rexburg Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry

It was given to one of our friends by one of the people associated with the repair work.

This stone is actually leftover material from the inside floor of the temple. Like the temple itself, it is very unique and beautiful in its own right.
Temple stones from the LDS Tucson Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
I was baptized in Tucson Arizona and my son and daughter-in-law both served missions there so this stone was very important for me to find.

Temple stones from the LDS Vernal Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
Another brick temple, the stone we use for the Vernal temple is the limestone accents from the outside. The stone is indiginous to the area and was cut from one of the local bluffs. The workers would cut out the blocks of limestone and roll them down the hill to waiting workers. If it did not break on the trip down, they took it to the building site. If it did break, they left it behind. Our stone is one of the ones that did not make the roll down the bluff.
Temple stones from the LDS Washington D.C. Temple by Nauvoo Remembered jewelry
The Washington DC stone is another one of our most popular temple stones. Known for its brilliant white reflective properties, it is an amazing stone. The piece we use in our jewelry is a broken piece of stone from the original construction. It was given to a friend who served his mission there during the construction and was given a piece of the stone. It sat in his garage for many decades before we found him and he offered to share some of the stone with us.
We search far and long for this stone until we found it at a show in Meridian Idaho. Another stone from a missionaries collection. He had it beautifully framed and we felt bad removing it but he really wanted us to have it so that others could enjoy it as well.
