Handmade in the Ancient Tradition


Like the fine craftsmen of old, we take pride in fashioning each of our jewelry treasures one at a time, by hand, using techniques that have been passed down from master to apprentice for hundreds of years.  We are the premier Berkshires jewelers, we maintain a complete goldsmith’s


workshop on premises and specialize in custom design.

Custom Made to Order:
Custom design is a specialty at R. W. Wise.  We provide complete on premises design services from initial sketch to the finished piece.  We have an extensive slide catalogue.  Our work is fully guaranteed. 



Rare Gems:
We maintain one of the largest inventories of


colored gemstones and pearls available in the northeast.  Richard Wise, our Graduate Gemologist, personally travels the world in search of the finest and rarest gems.  We specialize in lab certified, ideal-cutdiamonds. Several of Mr. Wise’s informative articles on gemstones are  posted on this website and may be accessed from the "GEMS & JEWELRY ARTICLES" pull down tab near the top of all pages.

We maintain a state of the art Gemological laboratory.  We are experts in gem identification and offer complete jewelry and gemstone appraisal services.

Our Lenox Jewelry gallery features a year-round exhibit of fine jewelry of all periods, including our own unique creations, guest exhibits of contemporary designers, and selected antique and estate jewelry. 

From September through June, we are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.  July & August we are open daily.  You are invited to visit us in Lenox, in the beautiful Berkshires of Massachusetts.
