Jewel-Craft On The Road
September 14, 2017

With our current facility under expansion construction and a flourishing customer base, the summer of 2017 was another busy period for Jewel-Craft Inc. While the majority of our staff stayed on the ground to manage day-to-day operations, we sent five of our most fearless representatives on the road. Off to trade show land they went.

Together Gary, Ross, Stefanie, Nick and Matt hit seven different cities, covered 17,816 miles, and attended five different tradeshows. All in the course of 33 days. Having a hard time wrapping your head around that? Here’s a summary:

City Miles Traveled Days Show
Tampa, FL 1,826 4 RJO
Atlanta, GA (twice) 1,828 8 STJA
Grapevine, TX 1,904 4 IJO
New York, NY 1,314 4 MJSA
Las Vegas, NV 3,886 5 JCK
Denver, CO 2,394 4 RJO
Seattle, WA 4,664 4 IJO
TOTAL 17,816 33

We’re happy to report that following the grand adventure everyone arrived back in Kentucky in once piece. Seeing customers, friends, and partners along the road was totally worth missing a few hours of shut-eye. That time is irreplaceable. And, this industry … it’s amazing.

I am a goldsmith but do not have all of the tools and time to do my own custom work, so I work directly with Jewel Craft to make it easy for me and perfect for my clients. If I need a shank that is 2.35mm wide and provide my own diamonds, Jewel Craft follows all of my design details and makes the ring 2.35mm wide and sets the diamonds to perfection.

First batch of jobs just came back from Jewel-Craft, and we are VERY pleased! Excellent communication, quality work, quick turnaround, reasonable prices. Everything we hoped for! Thanks Ross!

We have been working with Jewel Craft for over 20 years and I continue to use them because they are reliable. It’s like having my own 30,000 sq. foot shop, that’s how easy they are to work with. Expectations are always met and but most importantly, they are met in a timely matter.
Greg, Windsor Jewelers
We LOVE Jewel Craft. Their customer service and quality of work is why we have been using Jewel Craft for over 15 years. We use them for repairs as well as custom design and they really do make dreams come true for our customers.
Margaret, Engelberts
Jewel Craft makes it easy. I have goldsmiths on staff but when they are on vacation or we have overflow, I can count on Jewel Craft to get our repairs done so we don’t miss a beat. I also use them for custom design jobs due to their high level of technology and efficiency.
Donna, Boyle Jewelers
I just wanted to take a minute to express “Much Thanks” to the team of people that take care of me on a daily basis. Alyssa, Stephanie, and Lisa are always on top of things for me. For the last couple of weeks, after I told them that I’m preparing to go on my first vacation in over a year, I’ve noticed that they’ve been working very hard to meet (and usually beat) my deadlines to help ensure that I can vacation worry-free about my jewelry repairs. That means so much to me.
Michael, Williamsburg Jewelers
I received my most recent repair work this morning and wanted to reach out before time and the season get away from me. I've been in the jewelry business for nearly 25 years and I've seen "the good, the bad and the ugly" come out of the repair shop. You and your staff have given me an opportunity to compete for repairs with quality service I can promote with confidence. Thank you so very much.
