We are extremely proud of our senior bench goldsmith, John Neiss. He has over 26 years experience, and he is well-known in Minot for his exceptional work. In addition, he has created dozens of custom pieces of jewelry including items specifically crafted for individual customers.  John uses a LaserStar laser to create and repair jewelry.  The laser allows John to repair jewelry more quickly with much less risk to gemstones than with the conventional jeweler's torch.  The laser also makes significantly stronger repairs than the torch. 


We will replace batteries in all brands of watches while you wait, and are happy to add or replace links in metal watch bands.


We can engrave most metal items including giftware, watches, and rings.


We recommend that you have your jewelry cleaned and inspected at least every six months. We are always happy to do this for you at no charge.


We provide appraisals on items purchased at Knowles for over $500 for your insurance purposes. We can also update appraisals on older items for a nominal charge.  We are happy to do appraisals on any jewelry items.  Appraisal cost is based on the number of hours it will take us to complete the appraisal.
