*NAMED BEST CUSTOM & SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE JEWELRY 2019* - HUDSON VALLEY MAGAZINE
One-of-a-Kind Custom Designs: Our custom design process is fun and stress free. We will guide you every step of the way through the design process so there are no surprises. You’ll get to see a lifelike rendering of your new piece of jewelry before it exists. We can even use your gold, diamonds or gemstones to redesign a family heirloom to something more in your style. Our prices follow industry standardized pricing and are honest and fair.
Diamonds & Gemstones: Twice a year we travel to Antwerp Belgium, the diamond capital of the world to hand pick our Diamonds, meet with the diamond cutters and “Sightholders” who purchase directly from the mines. Selecting our diamonds so early in the global trade process assures that we’re able to provide you with the best quality and value as well as a shorter chain of custody to assure our diamonds’ conflict- free origins. We’re also proud to incorporate special gemstones from around the world into our work; they are all unique, of the highest quality and in many cases, hand cut by master lapidary artists here in the US.
Appraisals: GIA Diamond Graduate Jewelry Professional onsite offering appraisal services for jewelry, diamonds, and gemstones.
Buying: Gold, silver, platinum, diamonds and watches purchased in store. Payout is immediate and competitive, prices fluctuate with daily markets.
Expert Repairs: Our workshop and repair process is unparalleled. We repair all fine jewelry, including pieces purchased elsewhere. Upon bringing your jewelry in for repair, you’ll be guided by a qualified professional who will explain the repair process, cost and timeframe. We’ll then provide you with a detailed description and picture of your jewelry taken with a microscope so you can rest assured that your piece of jewelry and your diamonds will safely be returned to you like new. All repairs are preformed by our team of goldsmiths in our in-house studio incorporating the latest technology such as laser welding, CAD, 3D printing, the latest in natural diamond detection and diamond grading.
Earth Friendly Metals, eco- friendly & socially conscious practices: Recycled gold, silver and platinum and conflict free diamonds are used for every custom piece & repair and we seek out suppliers who do the same; earth friendly solutions and cleaning agents are used when available; a total of 8 high efficiency viral HEPA air filters constantly filter the air for the safety of our staff and customers. We can recycle your old jewelry into something more to your liking, using your same sentimental gold, diamonds and gemstones and lessening the environmental impact of your new piece of jewelry. We provide all of our staff with a fair living wage & excellent benefits and fully pay for their continuing education to better themselves within the fine jewelry field. We’re proud supporters of many local charities especially the David and Sara Walton Metal Thesis Support Fund at SUNY New Paltz to help support emerging metal artists.
