Learn more about the Weber Team

Having made jewelry for nearly forty-five years, one is bound to have highlights in their career. I’ve been fortunate to work with celebrities like Elton John, sports heroes, kings of industries, and royalty. The daily joy of matching a piece of jewelry to a customer, of any value, is really what I love about what I do. Check out our Gallery here to see some of these pieces.

So much of what we do here at Weber Goldsmith Gallery is personal service and custom work. I am compelled to at least tell you a little of my store’s history. It has been a journey to find ourselves settled here in this serene, lovely Crossroads Shopping Center.
