Why We are Different

Artists working in gold for over 35 years

 

Richard Gretz Goldsmiths is the oldest continuously-owned goldsmith shop in the Valley. Our shop has designed and created fine custom jewelry for over 30 years.


At Richard Gretz Goldsmiths, our specialty is the custom design and creation of unique pieces of jewelry. There is no better way to get exactly what you’ve been looking for than to have Richard bring your jewelry dreams to life.


Each year Richard travels to Thailand and Hong Kong to hand select the finest gemstones available.


After more than 40 trips, Richard has amassed one of the largest, most exquisite
collections of natural gemstones in the entire Valley. We import our gemstones directly to bring you the highest quality stones at the best prices. Because Richard hand selects every stone, you can be assured that only the most vibrant, lustrous, and beautiful stones are used in our jewelry. We also know the source of our gems all the way to the mine.


We have a strong dedication to classical techniques in jewelry making and design. Working alongside Richard are two fine wax artist-goldsmiths. Several of our staff have art degrees in addition to their many years of experience making jewelry and helping customers.

 

We also have one of only a few 3-Dimensional wax printers in Oregon. Our state-of-the-art system lets Richard design our jewelry on a computer to create uniquely detailed pieces. This technology allows us to create intricate designs best showcased in our Vintage Collection of engagement rings. View examples in our Diamond Gallery.
