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 most have degrees in metal arts, as well as advanced gemological training.
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 directly involved from inception to finish, ensuring you are satisfied with your final product.

With decades of experience in jewelry repairs, Summit can fix and alter any of your jewelry in need of service, from a simple sizing to a complicated restoration. We offer free estimates for repairs. We work with all colors of gold, platinum, and silver, and any variety of gemstones. While not every break 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.
Has your favorite watch has been loved a little too much? Do you need a new battery installed in your watch, a link removed or added to the band, or maybe your grandfather’s antique pocket watch needs to be cleaned and restored? We are happy to service nearly every type or brand of watch.
We offer several types of appraisals, depending on your needs. These include detailed insurance replacement, estate and fair market appraisals as well as liquidation estimates. We have an extensive amount of expertise from our many years of metalsmithing and GIA gemology certifications. Please contact us for pricing and details. We also offer FREE “sorting services” to separate costume from fine jewelry and give general estimations of value.
We also offer pearl and bead stringing, lapidary work (polishing, cutting, or repairing stones), general cleaning, and metal polishing as well as a variety of other services.
Appointments not required, but strongly recommended for custom design inquiries and large appraisal/jewelry sorting visits.
