I heard Richter and Phillips‘ new location just opened (now on the OTHER corner of 6th & Main downtown), so we checked it out and made this virtual tour for you to see it too!
I just checked out the West Side’s newest jewelry store: Dave Faigle & Son Jewelers! Dave is a family friend of mine and he’s been in the business since the 70s, and he recently decided to open this store with his son, Brad who’s been in the biz for 15 years. They have lots of brands you’ll recognize, but what makes them different is all their custom work. They can do repairs, or tweaks to your existing jewelry, custom create a design you have in mind, or they can re-create the look of a high-end designer. I did this video while I was there to give you a virtual tour through the space — Watch for all the dazzling details! And you can also click here to RSVP for their big grand opening event on May 21!
Locally owned jewelry company, Gem Steady, was founded in 2009 by husband and wife duo, Robert and Brittany Stadmiller. The couple specializes in one of a kind, custom heirloom jewelry pieces and engagement rings. This couple isn’t just a part of an average jewelry business, all jewelry is handmade in their Newport, Kentucky studio.
Gem Steady has a wide selection of diamonds, precious, and semi-precious stones for any occasion. Although Gem Steady has such a wide variety of stones, Robert and Brittany especially love creating pieces with unique and rare cuts and specimens. They create their jewelry by using platinum, sterling silver, 14 karat gold, and custom alloys. Brittany enjoys meeting with clients to give them the one on one experience that allows clients to bring their ideas to life.
Gem Steady is currently offering a ‘DIY Wedding Band Course’, where clients are able to come to the studio and have a hand in the actual creation and production of their wedding ring or band.
Some of their pieces can be found on celebrities such as Gabrielle Bernstein, Gala Darling, and Jessi Rankins. Check out Gem Steady to work with local jewelers who specialize in creating the most unique jewelry pieces for special occasions or every day wear.
I personally love the pieces that Gem Steady creates due to the fact that I know that they are created with a love and passion for the craft. Watching this couple produce jewelry pieces at this level in the Tri-State area really shows that there are plenty of reasons for us to support local businesses. With great service, warm communication, and high quality jewelry, Gem Steady will leave a very special memory with you; one that will last forever.
