Nelson Jewelers....A little out of the way, very much out of the ordinary


Custom Design Jewelry

Do you have your own idea for jewelry? We provide start to finish design and production of jewelry in your individual style.  First, our designer sketches your ideas on paper. Once the design has been determined, we will create a wax model for approval. After the wax has been approved, we cast the piece of your dreams in the metal of your choice. We then set all the stones and clean and polish the piece to a perfect finish in our shop. Another one-of-a-kind piece has been created!

You will cherish your one-of-a-kind creation for years to come.


Restyle an Existing Piece

Bring us the jewelry you never wear, especially if it has sentimental value. Our experts will reuse your old jewelry and gemstones to create an entirely new piece. We have a large selection of mountings in stock and ready to accommodate a single stone. If you have several stones of various sizes, we will create a custom design that is all your own.


Jewelry Repair Services

If you have a loose stone, need a new clasp on a bracelet, a ring sized or a diamond set, bring your jewelry to Nelson's. We work in any precious metals such as; platinum, gold, silver, or a combination.


Appraisal Services

We offer jewelry appraisal services for a fee based on time accrued. The minimum fee for any appraisal is $85; minimum turnaround time is three working days. The ultimate fee and due date will be determined by one of our appraisers upon physically inspecting the items to be appraised.

Appraisals are written by one of two staff Graduate Gemologists. You will receive two original copies of the appraisals, complete with digital photographs.

IF YOU INTEND TO INSURE YOUR JEWELRY:

Your insurance agent should specify the threshold value for obtaining a retail replacement appraisal. We can assist you in determining whether a particular item exceeds that threshold. You must give one of the copies of the appraisal you receive to your insurance carrier to obtain coverage. Your insurance company will specify how often an appraisal is needed.

IF YOU INTEND TO SELL YOUR JEWELRY:

A retail replacement appraisal will not be appropriate for selling jewelry to a private buyer. The value will be incorrect, and the appraisal document will be void if used for a purpose other than obtaining insurance.

We can prepare an offer to purchase while you wait, by appointment, at no charge. Or we can prepare a written fair market value appraisal according to the terms listed above, which will report the amount expected to be paid by the final buyer of the piece in its condition at the time of the appraisal.
