Note: Some designs must be made by hand
That is precisely what we have been doing for over 30 years, and since we have been in the industry for even longer we have firsthand knowledge of the quality of some of the country's leading high-end jewelers. We are very familiar with the industry, and as a result we are confident we offer a far superior value than other jewelry establishments.
The price of our jewelry is composed simply of the cost of two things, the metal and the gemstones. Although prices may fluctuate depending on the market value of precious metals at a given time, they usually include much smaller margins than our competitors. We charge less for repairs and custom work because we have no middle men. Also, we do not have nearly the same operating costs or overhead as chain jewelry stores.
Yes, virtually any piece of jewelry. There are some exceptions, but we very rarely turn down a customer’s project. If necessary, we may seek the assistance of state of the art Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) tools in order to create a wax that we may cast in the desired metal and then set with stones, finish, etc.
We have various suppliers of diamonds and gemstones, and are able to acquire virtually any quality diamond/gemstone variety in a matter of 1-2 business days. We carry Red Box Diamonds from one of our suppliers that allows us to offer a trade up progam that gives 100% credit of the purchase price toward the purchase of a more expensive diamond in the future, and they also come with complimentary loss protection for the first year.

The diamonds herein invoiced have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations Resolutions. The seller hereby guarantees that these diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the suppliers of these diamonds.
