Hi, how can we help?

What a gem of a jewelry store! The pieces are originals made on site with excellent quality and design. You should go just to look around at all the pretty things. They are so nice and welcoming and were happy to show me around. Not to mention the business is owned and run by women, it’s just too awesome !! I went to only look and I left with some pearls on an amazing sale that are so pretty.

Our experience here working with Tracy for our engagement & wedding bands was the best! Do yourself a favor - skip the big box stores and come to Jewelsmith. They are approachable experts on design & materials and sincerely care about your satisfaction!

The customer service, attention to detail, fine craftsmanship, and creativity at Jewelsmith make it a unique gem of Durham!I had my engagement ring designed here (gorgeous!), a custom band made, and have had jewelry appraised here a number of times. In all encounters, the staff was outstanding- always going the extra mile. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, they are amazing.

I adore Jewelsmith. I’ve worked with Mary and Tracy and they are both kind, wonderful people. I’m very selective (read: picky beyond extreme), and they hear what I say and ask the right questions, and I love everything they’ve helped me find. If you want a one of a kind jewelry experience with the best of the best people and absolutely no pressure sales, this is the place to go.

My (now) fiancé and I had a wonderful experience at Jewelsmith. We worked with Mary who was patient and exceptionally helpful throughout the process. The Jewelsmith staff are knowledgeable and we would highly recommend working with them!
