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.

I have been a customer of Jewelsmith for over 20 years, and have always received the incredible service and treatment from everyone there. If you are looking for anything jewelry related (custom, repair, evaluation, window shopping, etc.), you should definitely visit. The staff are all amazing, and incredibly talented. Stop reading this review and just go visit them.
