Hello, I'm Laura and welcome to my web site!  It's a constant work in-progress, but I hope to provide a site where you can see examples of our custom designed jewelry and unique inventory.  I am a master jeweler and have been in this business over 30 years.  Which means I can do just about anything concerning jewelry repair, restoration and design. Voted Best Jeweler in Pulaski County, I excel in the repair and restoration of gold and silver jewelry.  If you've been told by other jewelers that 'it can't be done', give me a shot at it.  I love a challenge!

If you are looking to design a exclusive piece of jewelry, you and I will sit down together and discuss your desires.  I will begin by sketching what you describe, taking note of any particular stones, forms, flourishes, and textures that you wish to include.  Then, when I have translated what you want on to paper, for a fee, I will carve in wax a three dimensional version.  After your approval, I will cast through the lost wax process your one-of-a-kind treasure in gold or silver.  Costs can be reduced if you have your own metal and stones.  Otherwise, I can provide everything including metals, diamonds, and precious stones.  I also have a special collection of uniquely cut colored stones.  My sources are world-wide so if we don't have it, we can find it!

My shop is located in St. Robert, Missouri just 5 miles north of the main gate of Ft. Leonard Wood in Pulaski County.  This is the third store location I have opened.  My husband is retired military so I've had to move the business several times during his career.  My first store was in Jacksonville, Alabama  just north of what was Ft. McClellan.  My second was in Jacksonville, Arkansas two miles from the main gate of Little Rock Air Force Base.  Between times, when I had no store front, I contracted my services to stores like Kay's, Gordon's, Carlisle & Co. and J.C. Penneys (Zales).  I also did custom work and repairs for individuals wherever we've been and, because of our travels, I still have clients all over the country. We have stopped moving around, thankfully, since my husband retired and have been here for 11 years. 

Laura's Jewelry Designs, LLC is listed and rated with the Jewelers Board of Trade, is a member of Jewelers of America, AGTA (American Gem Trade Association), Missouri Jewelers Association and the St. Louis Area Better Business Bureau.

Right now, the best way to reach me is either by email:  ljdesigns@artlover.com or by phone ;  573-336-0171

So, if you've been pondering an idea for a piece of unique jewelry and have an interest in designing it and getting it made, contact us and we'll get the ball rolling!

Payments can be made by Mastercard, Visa, Discover within the store, and by PayPal online.  We do offer a convenient layaway plan requiring only 20% down and six month payoff.

Have you ever seen a stone cut like this hot pink topaz?  Like the color, the cut makes you think KAPOW!  The diamonds also add their share of bling on this pendant!

This is one of my pride and joys: a 7.46 carat deep teal Tourmaline.  It's set minimally in a custom 14 karat mounting.

A soft golden South Sea Pearl crowned in yellow gold filigree with a wide diamond accented bail. Exquisite!

We're easy to find.  You don't need a GPS.  As a matter of fact, the GPS doesn't know where we are!  Use this old fashioned map!

_______________________________________________  

Why the Swan?  Most people know the story of the "Ugly Duckling".  It is about an orphaned 'duckling' that, after enduring much abuse, grows into an elegant swan.  It's similar to pieces of jewelry that have been worn and have lost their original charm (or never had it to begin with). I can make the story of your pieces of jewelry have a happy ending by transforming them, through the custom design process, into something new and beautiful.  Now let's transform YOUR old jewelry!

This stunning cornflower blue sapphire is uniquely set in two colors of 14 karat gold.  It is accented with four bright white diamonds.

We brought this mounting from the blah to the bling by adding a diamond journey pendant.
