Custom Jewelry Design & Remodeling

For almost 100 years and four generations of artisans, the Lamperts have developed a national reputation for fine custom designed jewelry.
The process begins with an individual design consultation. Then, right before the client’s eyes, designs are sketched that capture the client’s unique personality and desires. Once a sketch has been selected, talented model makers create a three dimensional prototype for review. Clients may choose to be as involved in the process as they like, or simply leave it up to the artistic judgment of the Lampert designers.
After the model is approved, production begins. Old-world craftsmanship blends with state-of-the-art technology in the Lester Lampert production facility to create jewelry of incredible beauty and quality.
Call to schedule an appointment to have a unique design created just for you. You will find the process both enjoyable and rewarding.

Jewelry Restoration & Repair

Lester Lampert is the perfect place to bring your jewelry heirlooms for proper repair and restoration. All repairs are done on the premises, and performed by master craftsmen with years of fine jewelry experience.
Whether it is a simple ring sizing or the restoration of a delicate antique, the Lampert facility is fully equipped to handle the project.
The latest in technology is offered including laser welding that quickly and cleanly bonds similar or dissimilar metals without the heat of traditional soldering techniques. In the past, if jewelry was damaged near a gemstone or enamel, repair was impossible without the risk of causing further damage to the item. Now, in the state-of-the-art Lampert manufacturing and repair facility, a pinpoint laser beam is used to make these incredibly delicate repairs.
Ask to have you favorite jewelry “Lesterized”. Skilled craftsmen will completely restore your jewelry, replace chipped stones, build-up weak metal, and polish it to perfection. It’s like coming home with a brand new piece of jewelry. And, as an extra bonus, you will receive your very own “Lesterizer” to take home- a sonic jewelry cleaning machine to keep your jewelry looking its best.
