Why go Custom?
Let’s face it, performers, pageant contestants, and entertainers can be rough on costumes and accessories. And as jewelers, we compensate for that by using the highest quality and the strongest materials we can find. We are constantly looking for new materials, ideas, and suppliers, to help keep the cost of each piece at its best value. All entertainers no matter what your genre watch their budgets!!
