Lapidary Services & Repair

We primarily work on Sterling Silver pieces, but we do work in gold and other metals.  If you have that special piece that needs fixing, polishing or just looked at, bring it in and let’s take a look at it.
We can tell you if it is fixable, and amazingly, sometimes we can even fix the most challenging piece.
Need a slab of rock cut into an oval? Teardrop? Circle? or whatever?  Come, lets talk.  We have a full service lapidary shop that can cut your slabs, form them, and polish for your personal jewelry work.
Custom Services
Besides the above services, and classes, we have the knowledge and resources to help you design and make just about anything in the jewelry area.
