YOUR IDEAS BROUGHT TO LIFE!!

Family-owned shop since 1983 that specializes in providing a different experience than traditional jewelry stores. Jeweler/owner provides personal service to each customer to ensure you get that unique one-of-a-kind custom design. BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Work closely with the jeweler from the beginning concept to the final piece you’ve always wanted. In addition to traditional hand-crafted wax design, Computer Aided Design (CAD) 3D Virtual Design technology is also available. CAD technology cuts the custom design cost and time in half! Custom design allows you to select the diamonds or colored stones of your choice, which means you select the exact color, cut, and quality you want. As an alternative to buying new, consider updating your existing piece by remounting your stones into a new style. A wide variety of the highest quality jewelry is also available - certified conflict-free diamonds, engagement rings, men's and women's wedding bands, anniversary jewelry, pendants, earrings, rings, and much more. Many styles are available in your choice of platinum, palladium, or gold. Read less

Mike was very professional and knew exactly what my fiance wanted for my engagement ring. He was very flexible with meeting with us when it was convenient to us. Doing business with an in-home jeweler was an amazing experience! Mike was very personal and truly cared about our wants and needs. My ring is absolutely gorgeous! I couldn't be happier with the quality of the ring and the wonderful service Mike provided.

We loved him so much, we are going back for our wedding bands! I would not choose any other Jeweler for such an important purchase. As I told my fiance, this is something I will wear every day for the rest of my life! Every detail matters, and Mike was there to accommodate to anything we wished.

A wonderful experience!

After being disappointed by the quality and sales people at Retail Stores. I was very pleased working with Mike. He was very personable and took his time with me. Mike met all of my needs and expectations. Mike helped me in selecting a ring best suited for my fiance to be.

I was very happy getting a ring and diamond I wanted not guessing at a retail store. The price range I requested was dead on and I could not have been happier with the results.

I would recommend Mike "VERY HIGHLY" for QUALITY and CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Mike was a pleasure to work with. He was flexible with appointment times, meeting with us on the weekend since we don't live closeby. Very paitent as we rolled through various options, listening and presenting different rings and ideas to help us hone in on our perfect rings. more relaxing that sitting in a mall store and I am sure a better value for the end product. Even offered to work on desiging a custom ring, but we found what we wanted in the standard offerings. Have no reservations recommending Mike to any bride and groom to be.

Working with Mike was a pleasure. From the very beginning we discussed multiple options for engagement ring and wedding band designs. After reviewing numerous ring, band, and diamond options, we decided to deviate from the standard designs commonly found in stores and pursued a custom design. We entrusted our own hand-sketched design to Mike because of his professionalism and commitment to making sure that the design was brought to life with complete satisfaction.

Mike met with us multiple times during the design process to review the wax carving progress to confirm that we were satisfied with his work. Upon completing the wax molds, he kept us informed on the casting process and the final detail work he performed prior to us receiving the completed ring and band.

The overall process of the custom design went smoothly and was completed timely. The quality of the ring and band is as high as could be. The overall price of our ring and band were equal to that of standard rings and bands (with comparable diamonds and gold weights) that are all too often found in stores.

If you are looking for a ring that will be uniquely yours, we would highly recommend Mike. Even without a sketch of your own, Mike’s years of experience can help you develop a personalized design you will be happy with. Knowing that we were able to take our own sketch and transform it into a symbol of our love will always make our ring and band unique and special. Thank you Mike.

To get one on one professional experience, I highly recommend Smale Jewelers. You truly get what you want and aren't pressured into buying something that don't. Very fair pricing for exquisite craftsmanship, Smale Jewelers cares more about the product and your happiness then the price tag. Will return for future jewelry needs.

Mike was very flexible and welcoming, and let me explore each of my whims until I was satisfied we were getting the right diamonds and ring. Mike kept me in the loop throughout the entire process and made it feel like I was buying through family.

Bottom Line: my fiance is still ecstatic with the final choice two weeks later!

I found more than one gem when I found Mike Smale from Smale Jewelers! This was my 2nd marriage, and it was important to me to find a unique ring. After countless trips to jewelry stores of all shapes and sizes, it didn't look like "unique" came at an affordable price. I then began looking online which presented a lot more options, but none of them seemed affordable either, and ordering an engagement ring online leaves much to be desired on the customer service front. I happened upon Smale Jewelers on a community wedding website, and decided to call Mike. Our first meeting was great! I knew almost instantly that he would be the person to help me find the ring of my dreams! We decided together that day that a custom ring was the way to go. With just a few pictures and some description of how I wanted the ring to look, he set to work right away. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and creative. We worked on my design together and he lended his expertise to help us understand what was structurally possible and what wasn't. In the end he even added little details that just made the ring perfect! I wish there were words to describe how thrilled I am with my ring. I can promise you that if you think that unique and magnificent are not affordable, you are wrong! Call Mike Smale and he will make your dreams come true at an affordable price!!

I was looking for an engagement ring for my girlfriend at the time (now fiance) and was hoping to find a local knowledgeable jeweler who I could trust. At the time I knew relatively little about engagement rings, and after reading several positive reviews for Smale Jewelers decided to contact them.

At our first meeting we discussed what I suspected my fiance was looking for, the general "process", as well my price range. Following this meetings Smale Jewelers found several diamonds that fit my criteria, and at a later meeting we looked at each and he discussed the pro's and con's of each. What is unique about Smale Jewelers is that at this point a band can be designed to create a one-of-a-kind ring (though as expected the more work required to design the band, the higher the price).

Smale Jewelers was extremely approachable, responsive, and sensitive to my constraints. I would highly recommend Smale Jewelers, particularly if you are looking for something unique.
