Jewelry Store in the Historic District

Thirteen years ago I had a jewelry artist remake a ring for me. I had met him getting a cup of coffee downtown his name is Rex, he has a store off of Cuna street. I had some gold jewelry from my travels through the years and decided I wanted to have Rex melt it down and  design me a cigar band type ring. I wanted it to be contemporary and yet nautical. He showed me the design and how he was going to place the stones in the setting. When he showed me the finished product I was thrilled. I was so pleased with the results I had him make several other rings.  Mine are one of a kinds but he can recreate anything. He reminds me of a cross between Einstein and Geppetto with a Jersey accent.  He is a character for sure, his shop is easy to get to and well worth the trip downtown. He carries a wide range of jewelry anything from Platinum, gold, white gold, sterling silver. You can find pearls of every kind and precious and semi-precious stones. I  love visiting him to see what he is working on and looking at all of his new inventory.
