Goldsmith Silversmith FAQ

What products do you carry?
We carry a mix of local artist work, estate jewelry, items from our partner designers, and jewelry that has been made in house by Dwaine, Jim, or our other talented staff members.

Do you sell loose gemstones?
Yes we do! We have a large selection of gemstones, and if we don't have what you need, we can get it for you.

Can I bring in my own stones?
Absolutely. We are happy to design jewelry around stones you already own.

Do you buy gold?
Yes, we purchase scrap gold after testing the gold content. We also offer a higher value for store credit, and the option to use your own gold in a custom job.

Is your work done in-house?
Yes, most of our custom work and jewelry repairs are done right here in the shop. Our jeweler, Jim, has his bench in the back of our store, and we have our casting set-up in our basement.

How long will it take to get my jewelry fixed?
Our turnaround time is typically 2-3 weeks. Simple repairs may be done sooner. We will give you a time estimate when you drop off your repair job.

Do you work on watches?
We replace watch batteries and add or remove watch links. All other watch repairs would need to be done by a watchmaker.

Do you do appraisals?
Yes we do. A formal apprasial (typically used for insurance purposes) is $60. Please note that we only do apprasials on diamond jewelry.

OUR PROCESS

1. Design & Consultation

To begin the process of a custom job, simply stop by our store anytime to talk with one of our jewelry designers. We will discuss what type of design you are looking for and create a plan and a quote for your job. We encourage you to bring in any photos or inspiration to help with the design process. We can also use your stones and gold to make into a new piece, so bring those along too. No appointment necessary!

2. Wax Carving or CAD Model

Once we have a plan together for your custom design, we will begin the process of creating a wax model. Our wax carver, Marq, hand-carves most of our models out of a special hard wax for jewelry casting. Some jobs require a CAD (computer aided design) model, which is created and then produced into a wax model. This process typically takes 3 weeks. Once the model is complete, we will have you approve the wax replica before we cast it into metal. At this stage we can make any adjustments to the design if necessary.

3. Casting

Once we have an approved wax model, our in-house jeweler, Jim, will cast your design into metal. If you have yellow or rose gold jewelry you would like to repurpose, we can melt it and cast it into your new piece.

4. Stone Setting & Final Polish

The final step in finishing your custom piece involves setting any stones into the design and polishing the metal. From start to finish, we ask that you expect 6-8 weeks for the completion of a custom job. The designer you work with will keep you updated on the progress of your job and will be able to answer any questions that you may have. We pride ourselves in our ability to provide you with an individualized experience that will result in a one-of-a-kind piece!
