Creating Works of Art In Gold and Platinum

We are committed to creating a positive impact by obtaining precious metals and gemstones in ways that are socially and environmentally responsible. Industrial mining can be destructive, not only to the environment but to the miners who are often underpaid, enslaved and mistreated. We have a long-standing relationship with our gold vendors and trust their reputable practices of maintaining high values and ethical standards concerning gold sourcing, including countries that prohibit human trafficking and slavery in the countries they do business. Our gold is refined or recycled into the beautiful pieces we create here, with no degradation of quality or value.

Richard Gretz has designed and created custom jewelry for over 43 years. He and his team of skilled platinum and goldsmiths use only the finest quality gemstones to create their works of wearable fine art.

Taking inspiration from the master-smiths of old, many of the original designs produced at Richard Gretz Goldsmiths incorporate vintage and modern elements. Richard's attention to detail and passion for unique, yet timeless, jewelry can be seen in all of his creations.

All items available for sale are handcrafted at our workshop in Corvallis, Oregon.

If you are interest in a custom piece, please contact us. Our staff will be happy to help you to bring your idea into reality.

Our Impact

We are committed to creating a positive impact by obtaining precious metals and gemstones in ways that are socially and environmentally responsible. Industrial mining can be destructive, not only to the environment but to the miners. We have a long-standing relationship with our gold vendors and trust their reputable practices of maintaining high values and ethical standards concerning gold sourcing, including countries that prohibit human trafficking and slavery in the countries they do business. Our gold is refined or recycled when possible into the beautiful pieces we create here, with no degradation of quality or value.

Plating

Any plating such as white rhodium or black rhodium will eventually wear with time or use. The amount of time that it takes for this to happen can vary widely on climate, wear by the user, chemical reactions with the user's skin and surroundings, and etc. Please contact us if you feel that your item needs to be replated and we will be happy to provide you with a quote.
