This Northern Michigan boutique is now owned by a second generation of jewelers, who were trained by their father since childhood. Along with their husbands and a small crew, they dream up and create rings, wedding sets, necklaces and earrings that aren’t your typical jewelry.
Aside from a collection of jewelry ready-to-ship online, Wexford Jewelers also work with custom orders. For these, you can start out with your dream idea, then they start the process by suggesting options for stones and metals. If you’re looking for something special, they will provide a sketch and once it’s approved, they head right to the sculpting table for a model ring. The wax model is then precisely cut and formed to your liking. It is cast into metal in their Michigan location, followed by a series of finishing steps and then final gem setting.
Most custom work is done via email if you’re not local, but some couples choose to make the drive to scenic Northern Michigan for an artist appointment, or you can choose to meet with their Arizona located artist. These whimsical pieces are heirloom quality jewelry from a boutique that has spent more than 20 years serving couples for their wedding and engagement rings. They know what makes a ring durable, what curvature will feel comfortable on your hand, and what gemstone height will be practical for your lifestyle and budget. On orders over $300, they offer payment plans with no interest for up to 3 months.
