    5 out of 5 stars

    Found a great husband whom I dearly love, 42 years ago...but never cared for my wedding ring. I have FINALLY found the prettiest wedding ring I have ever seen--- So now I have a perfect combination of Husband/Ring to love! My search is over, and I hope to get to enjoy both, for many years to come.
    Photos do NOT do this ring justice. The design and workmanship are superb, as is the very helpful customer service!
    The shop went above and beyond to get my ring to me within a very tight time-frame, and provided very helpful answers to my questions. I am Soooo happy I found this shop and my beautiful "dream" wedding ring. Thank you ever so much!!!

About

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 40 years. He and his team of skilled platinum and goldsmiths use only the finest quality natural 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.
