Our Specialties

We also specialize in bridal jewelry.  We were named one of the Top Wedding Vendors in Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine readers for 2013-2024 as well as one of the Top Fine Jewelry Stores in Southwest Virginia for 2012-2023.  We specialize in engagement rings, wedding bands, diamond earrings, diamond pendants, and diamond bracelets.  We do work with most colored gemstones, and we offer a wide range of sterling silver fashion jewelry from various designers.

We are known as Southwest Virginia’s custom jeweler.  We create many of our own pieces, and we offer full custom design and manufacturing services to our clients.  We have in house jewelers for setting, repairs, and alterations.  By using highly skilled specialists, we are able to make our jewelry designs and quality look different than most mass produced jewelry.  We can create that special one of a kind item for you.  We offer diamonds of any size and shape in mostly Good, Very Good and Ideal cut grades.  We will be glad to work with you on special orders as well.

We purchase diamonds from legitimate suppliers that provide written assurances of compliance with the Kimberley Process and are not involved in funding conflict.

We also buy gold, silver, and diamonds from the public.  We are licensed and bonded in the town of Abingdon to buy precious metals and gems from the public.  Our scales are certified by the State of Virginia’s Department of Weights and Measures.  We also will buy larger diamonds of higher quality.  We pay cash on the spot.
