When I inherited a family diamond ring and wanted the stones re-set into a more classic style, a family member who really knows jewelry recommended J. Lewis Jewelry and I was very pleased with the work. She also wrote up all the appraisal paperwork to send to the insurance company.
Jill knows her stones and the best ways to set them and works with you to create a design that will work for you within the cost parameters you need. She has also been able to troubleshoot other settings I've had, replace lost stones at a reasonable cost and resize rings that others have sized too large for me, not understanding that I really DO have such small fingers.
Good jewelry does sometimes cost more than we might think of spending... but better to have it done right, especially where family heirlooms are concerned.
