Our Story

While Jewel-Craft now offers comprehensive jewelry services to retail jewelers all over the country, we never forget our humble beginnings.

Mastering The Trade

We’ve been masters of our trade since 1947. From our stone setters, to our appraisers, every Jewel-Craft employee is an expert in their field.

Who We Are

Earl Wesdorp established Jewel-Craft in the attic of his garage. His tools were used, his space was small, and the money wasn’t instant. His commitment to his trade and his customers are what kept him going. They opened new doors for him and his family. And, they’re why Jewel-Craft has grown into the nationwide business that it is today.

While our business has evolved, our core principles have not. For three generations, and over seventy years we’ve always marched towards one goal – to satisfy our clients through the finest quality jewelry services.

What We Do

At Jewel-Craft we offer you all of the jewelry services that you need at one convenient location. Whether you’re looking for help with a large scale manufacturing run, or just need a simple repair, we’ll complete your project with extreme care and efficiency. No middle men. No guessing games.

Located in Erlanger, Kentucky, our team includes:

  • Family Owners & Operators
  • Stone Setters
  • Jewelry Smiths
  • Pearl & Bead Stringers
  • Laser Technicians
  • Designers
  • GIA Educated Appraisers

What sets us apart is our commitment to our trade. Each of our jewelers concentrates on only one field of expertise, allowing us to provide you with only the highest level of craftsmanship.

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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
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.
