At Independent Goldsmiths, our three jewelers have 60 plus years combined jewelry making experience. Our big specialty is jewelry repair and restyling. Our jewelers' experience runs the spectrum from custom designing rings and jewelry to stone setting, mold making, and manufacturing of jewelry. Our jewelers also offer a diamond finder service, if we don't have it, we can get it here for a fast free look. Why not have a professional find the diamond for you?
