Celebrating the Vendor of the Year Award

Jewel-Craft Trade Show Booth

Since Jewel-Craft was established, we’ve come a long way. However, we’ll never forget our humble beginnings. In 1947, Jewel-Craft was founded in a garage attic by Earl Wesdorp. The space was small, his tools were old and money was tight. But, the commitment to his customers fueled his efforts. Earl’s son Bob and his wife Dot jumped on board in 1950, transforming Jewel-Craft into a family business. Year after year, doors began to open, new clients hopped on board and Jewel-Craft grew into the company that it is today.

Despite this continual growth, our principles have always remained the same. We are dedicated to making sure each client gets the best quality jewelry and service possible. For three generations, we’ve fulfilled that promise.

Throughout it all, we’ve been grateful for the immense love and support from the industry. In 2009 and 2019, we received RJO’s Vendor of the Year Award for the Service/Specialty Goods category. This year, we are honored to announce that we did it again!

It’s no secret that we wouldn’t be where we are without our independent jewelers. More than just customers, they’re family. We owe a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us, our loyal clients, dedicated staff and supportive community. Without them, none of this would’ve been possible. It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come since 1947 and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future.

At Jewel-Craft, we’re dedicated to offering incredible services with extreme care. If you need large-scale manufacturing or even a simple repair, let the Jewel-Craft pit crew work for you. We’d love to set up a time to talk about everything we can do to elevate your store. Reach out to us today to learn more.

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.

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.
Raime, Raime Weber Jewelry
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
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
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.
Carol Taylor, Forever Knot in Jackson, TN
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
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!
