Jewelry and Metals

We work with sterling silver, platinum, and gold.

What is right for one person may not be right for another. The best type of metal for a jewelry piece ultimately comes down to the person wearing it and the function. Our team would be happy to discuss the metal options for your next jewelry piece!

Repurpose it! We can help you turn unworn jewelry into something you will treasure for years to come.

Rhodium is a precious metal in the platinum family. It is used as a finishing step for white gold and some sterling silver to brighten appearance and prevent scratches.

Silver reacts with oxygen and will tarnish over time. Storing your pieces in a cool, dark place will slow down this natural process. Tarnish is easily removed with polishing.

We recommend bringing your jewelry into our store every six months to have your jewelry checked, stones tightened, and professionally cleaned.
