We have yet to meet a challenge we can’t surpass. James is a member of the American Gem Trade Association, Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America, Jewelers Board of Trade and the Traverse Area Chamber of Commerce.

James C. Smith Fine Jewelry is the authority on all things jewelry. We carry a wide range of custom-made rings, earrings, pendants, as well as loose colored stones and diamonds. Always taking your ideas and wishes into consideration, we are determined to find or make the right piece for you. Almost 80% of the jewelry in our cases is designed and crafted on sight, so you know you will never see the same piece elsewhere.

We can provide you with detailed advice on material and design; draw up the initial drafts, carve a wax model and incorporate your ideas. Custom designed jewelry is our specialty. Recognizing the growing role of computer technology in the jewelry industry, we invested in Matrix jewelry design software. Used by many famous jewelry designers and taught in more than 55 schools and universities, Matrix is the most advanced tool for jewelry design ever developed. We have the tools to design virtual 3-D jewelry on screen and create photo-realistic images of our designs.

We routinely utilize a 3-D printer, giving us the ability to grow a life-size model of your piece for you to t
