Custom Designed Jewelry

Did you know that we create custom-designed jewelry right here in the store? We have an onsite jeweler who can do just about anything we dream up. Together with Amy — who has such a creative vision — they make a great team. There are a few different ways a custom piece comes together:

Designed by Amy

Amy is our certified gemologist, an achievement requiring years of study and continuing education. She finds beautiful stones from our trusted partners, and seeks out treasures at various gem shows. She then takes those pieces and finds or designs the perfect settings for them. Her designs range from simple to intricate settings, classic or modern. Those beautiful, unique, creations are interspersed in our showcases with items made by other designers, and may be easy for the casual shopper to miss. Just ask us to see these one-of-a-kind designs, and we’d be happy to point them out. The quality and craftsmanship is second to none.
