In-House Manufacturing - From Our Artisans' Hands... to Yours

In-house manufacturing.  From our artisians' hands...to yours.

It takes several artisans, each with their own unique skill, to create a single piece of jewelry.

However, not all jewelry design and manufacturing shops are created equal. In fact, many jewelers don't have a shop at all. The hands behind our jewelry are reflections of the labor-intensive process involved in creating or restoring small and intricate works of art right here in our own store. From a vision or sketch to a wax mold, and then to setting every precious stone, the entire process is done by our own artisans within our Indianapolis and Greenwood stores. Family owned and operated right here in Indianapolis since 1919, we are respected for having one of the most progressive design and manufacturing shops in the country.

Our shop over time.
Experience you have counted on since 1919
