From a simple sizings to soldering chains or complicated restoration, Summit brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table. We offer FREE estimates for repairs, usually provided during your initial visit. We work with all colors of gold, platinum and silver as well as a huge variety of gemstones. Matching lost earrings, rebuilding worn rings, replacing lost stones or just a simple cleaning, these are just some of the services we offer. While not everything can be repaired, if something can be done, we will do it. We pride ourselves on thinking outside the box to give new life to the jewelry pieces you treasure.
For some examples of our vintage inventory pieces we have restored, please visit our ETSY store.

We have been creating amazing, one-of-a-kind pieces for over 30 years in our studio/shop in Webster Groves, Missouri. All of our staff have bench experience and many of us have degrees in the metal arts as well as advanced gemological training.
The art of metal-working is ancient, dating back thousands of years. Some projects begin with a model carved from a block of wax, some begin with sheet metal and wire that is worked and soldered, some projects are designed in a 3D computer program, printed and cast into metal. Have an heirloom diamond or colored stone? We can certainly re-purpose your stones or provide stones from our huge inventory of diamonds and loose gemstones. Our custom process is client-driven, meaning YOU can be intimately involved from inception to finish, if you choose. We encourage you to ask questions, be involved—the process of making a custom-created piece can be (almost) as exciting as seeing the finished product. Visit our portfolio for examples of past and present projects.
