Summit Jewelers has been locally owned and operated by Martin Hassing since 1979. We provide high quality craftsmanship in our custom designs, repairs, manufacturing, and appraisals, all done in-house by our talented team of jewelry professionals. We love working on jewelry, and we want you to love wearing it!
Our original store tagline was “Makers of Fine Gold Jewelry” which is just the tip of the iceberg. Not only do we work in all colors of gold, but also platinum and sterling silver. We pride ourselves on creating our own designs from the bottom up, beginning with a sketch and ending with a one-of-a-kind piece to be shown in our display cases or delivered to a happy client. The breadth of our work includes a large amount of custom projects, ranging from designing elegant wedding sets to rebuilding the hilts of centuries-old swords. We enjoy a challenge and can tackle any project you bring to us with the utmost confidence and quality. Our staff includes experienced jewelers, designers, appraisers, and sales personnel who are passionate about their craft. We are G.I.A. trained and certified, practicing strict gemstone evaluation in accordance with the G.I.A. industry standards. Since we are passionate about the quality of our gemstones, we travel and hand select our stones at their sources in Thailand, Cambodia, and Brazil, as well as the world-renowned gem shows in Tucson, Bangkok, and Hong Kong. We have the largest collection of gemstones in the region!
After a humble beginning in the basement of Marty’s house, we now practice the art of fine jewelry in a historic building in Webster Groves, Missouri. Our store is located in a charming old house on the east edge of the Old Orchard shopping district. Please stop in and say hi to our team- our four-legged pals Yadi, BeBe, and Roscoe are especially fond of attention. If you can’t make it in person, feel free to contact us about purchasing a piece from our portfolio or buy directly from our Etsy.
Appointments not required, but strongly recommended for custom design inquiries and large appraisal/jewelry sorting visits.
