Our Philosophy


Individual Customer Service


Our goal has always been to provide fine jewelry at a reasonable price with an emphasis on personal service. We carry both new and estate items and will look for and locate anything our clients would like to have through our extensive network of suppliers that has been built up since JLI was established in 1973.


Through the years we have helped many of our clients build collections of both unusual items and everyday wearable pieces.


Engagement and Wedding Rings

We work closely with people looking for engagement rings, helping them to not only find the right stone and mounting, but to educate them as well. Since an engagement ring is often the most expensive purchase a young client makes, we feel that knowing what one is buying is important and we are happy to provide that information for prospective buyers.


JLI prides itself on personal service in a one on one setting. Prospective buyers will be able to spend as much time as they want learning everything they need to know so they will feel comfortable and confident about their purchase.


Unwanted Jewelry


Another of our services is to help clients sell their unwanted jewelry and gold. We do this by outright purchase, consignment sale or trade in. We also design new items and redesign old pieces.



We are especially proud of the fact that our business has always been one of referrals from our clients. Everyone who comes to us knows someone who is a satisfied client. By reading the testimonials on, you too will know people who are satisfied clients.
