Welcome to Maritime Jewelers
We’d like to introduce a new name for a well-established jeweler, Maritime Jewelers. In honor of our home town, Gig Harbor, Washington known as the Maritime City.
Our goal with our new name is to honor our customers with the best service, with the highest quality, and with the some of the most competitive prices found. We’re locally owned and operated and specialize in custom, antique, and estate jewelry. We also offer consignment helping you get more for your fine jewelry. We also offer trades and make purchases on the spot.
Meet our owner
Our owner and master jeweler, Erik, is GIA Certified (Gemological Institute of America) and has over 40 years of experience. His passion is the designing and construction of custom jewelry pieces for his customers. Being GIA Certified he is also uniquely qualified to give appraisals for customer jewelry and assist in the purchase of new pieces to add to the collection our wonderful customers have already acquired. Erik also travels to the Tuscan Gem Show every year to purchase showcase pieces and bring some of the newest styles to the Northwest. The Tucson Gem Show is the largest dealer to dealer gem and jewelry show in the world! Having the opportunity to travel to the Tucson Gem Show means being able to bring some of the worlds finest selection of loose gems, jewels, and superb designer jewelry pieces to our customers who have come to appreciate and expect!
Meet our bench jeweler
We have the privilege of repairing our customers valuable pieces of jewelry onsite at the steady hands of our master bench jeweler, Tom. Tom, like Erik, also has 40 years of experience skillfully repairing and crafting custom jewelry. His unique experiences bring a vast array of services we can provide our customers all within the comfort of our own repair studio. No need to stress about your jewelry or family heirlooms being shipped to another state or facility to be repaired. This also makes our repair time significantly less than that of other jewelers. If you have a diamond that needs to be set, ring to be re-sized, clasp that needs repaired, or combining jewelry into a new one of a kind piece; with Tom’s expertise and exquisite craftsmanship you will not be disappointed.
Large selection of loose gemstones
Our owner, Erik, travels to the largest dealer to dealer gem and jewelry show in the world, the Tuscan Gem Show, each year to bring back a one of the largest selection of loose stones you’ll find in Washington.
We have hundreds to choose from with different cuts and clarity for your liking. Stop on by and we’re happy to assist you in finding the perfect gem.
