Great place! Having my gold earrings repaired, and my wedding ring sized up right now. Really good quality work. Highly recommend.

Very nice and accommodating.. I brought in a bunch of jewelry that was in need of various clasps and extenders most of which was fixed as I waited.. I also bought my current pair of favorite earrings there

I brought in my great aunt's ring to see if Cheryl could reset it to something a bit more my taste and the product is beyond anything I could have imagined. The ring is beautifully unique and still has the flare of my great aunt's personality. This was my first time resetting a piece of jewelry and Cheryl, as well as the employee, were extremely patient, kind, and helpful as we brainstormed through the process. Designs By CC will now be my go-to for anything jewelry related. Thank you Cheryl! I smile every time I wear the ring.

Quality handmade jewelry by the owner in the store.

Cheryl did a fantastic job rebuilding a very old bracelet of mine. 24 hinge posts in all. Drilled and re-pinned each one. She even took the time to rebuild the latch. She is clearly a jeweler with all the expertise needed to tackle even the most complex and delicate repairs. I couldn't have asked for any more.

Had to have my wedding rings resizer and a bracelet reinforced. The work was excellent. We are very pleased. Cheryl is great.
