Custom Jewelry design and remounts are a specialty here at EM Smith Jewelers and for good reason. At most jewelry stores, when you want and original design or a remount of existing jewelry, you have to wait until the designer has finished making pencil and paper renderings of it before you decide if it's what you really want.
But we're not like most other jewelry stores.
We create jewelry using the latest cutting edge computer technology: a Gemvision Workstation. This computer-based design system allows you to become fully involved in the design of your jewelry and watch it evolve in a matter of minutes on a computer screen.
This additional service is completely free of charge.
