It all begins with an idea

It can be the most personal expression of your individuality. It tells your story. It can combine vintage and contemporary in a piece with sentimental value and fashion-forward style. At G.Blando Jewelers, we can create one-of-a-kind custom jewelry using gemstones and pieces that you already own, or craft original designs based on your imagination and our creativity.

In over 35 years we have created countless wonderful pieces for clients ranging from simple to extravagant. Our goal is to simply listen carefully to your requests, add input for design and technical application, and deliver a piece that far exceeds your expectations.

Bring photos, sketches, ideas or wishes, and we will work with you to transform your dreams into a reality. We love to make pieces unique to everyone who comes through our doors.Custom designed jewelry from G. Blando Jewelers can often be less expensive than a similar designer piece.

Places like this are far and few between

While Gary himself might be an interesting fellow. He goes above and beyond to ensure you’re happy with your experience. He is willing to negotiate a fair and honest value for the work he does as well as the products he sells. I honestly recommend going here above all other jewelry shops as nothing is overpriced, the work is fast and as ordered, and overall cheaper than going to a corporate or “big box” retail jewelry store. Places like this are far and few between now days and are definitely worth going to over anywhere else. If you live in the area and need work done or want something custom made, Gary is your guy. Gary is an old school jewler with true talent and skill. I’ve had many pieces of mine worked on by him over the course of TEN YEARS and not ONE SINGLE COMPLAINT.

Very Fair Pricing

Got some jewelry repaired. Highly recommended local business! Very fair pricing.

Friendly and affordable.

Friendly and knowledgeable. Would go back for any jewelry issues. Thank you, Gary.


Excellent work for a very reasonable price

This is the kind of place where you will talk to the person (there’s only one) that will do the actual work. Excellent work for a very reasonable price. This is not a trendy place, but quality workmanship.


Affordable and high quality

Great jeweler, very affordable and high quality. Very quick as well with repairs, his jewelry is also at a great price but all real and authentic.

This guy really knows his craft!!

This guy really knows his craft!! I went in with my parents wedding bands asking for him to make new ones for me and my fiance using the gold and he did a fantastic job! He listened to what we wanted and respected our budget. The quality of his work is rare today in days. He also resized my engagement ring quickly and again quality work. If I could give more stars I would. Highly recommend if you need anything come to Gary.

Old school

An old school jeweler who will spend time trying to find the right fit for you. I got my wedding band here. Seems to have all the conventional stuff available but has a lot of really cool vintage and handmade (by him) as well. While I was there a couple times probably a dozen people came by to pick up items he was repairing for them so I guess he’s good at that too. Knows everyone by name and gets to know you while you’re there. We tried to do as much as we could for our wedding with small businesses. Couldn’t recommend this guy more highly.


His honesty and skill is his best integrity

Gary is an excellent Jeweler. He made my wedding ring from a picture that I drew. Everyone that I know that goes to him is extremely happy with him. Whether it’s making jewelry or repairing jewelry, he can do it! His honesty and skill is his best integrity. It is worth going to Brookfield to get something quality at the price you want to pay then going to the mall and paying three times as much. I recommend him to everyone I know.


Fair pricing

I wanted to get my wedding band and engagement ring soldered and Gary did a wonderful job at doing so! I had my ring back in no time! Fair pricing too. Definitely recommend this small business. Had some very unique pieces too!


He’s local

Gary is GREAT guy with an even GREATER personality. He did an excellent job on sizing down my most precious ring from my grandparents. He’s local & fantastic. I’ll definitely be back! You should check him out!! Thank you Gary!


Educates his customers

Gary not only provides excellent and quality service; but also educates his customers to help them make informed decisions. I’ll never go to another big box jewelry store again after meeting Blando.


Above and beyond

Great prices! Gary cares about what you need and will go above and beyond what you’re asking for. Very trustworthy. Highly recommend

Gary’s prices are affordable

I have been going to Gary for jewelry and repairs for a long time. Gary’s prices are affordable and he does not rush or pressure you to buy anything. I was impressed with the engagement ring buying process. He displayed a few diamonds for me to compare the clarity, weight, etc and he took the time to explain the differences and how they could fit my budget. I love that diamond to this day!
There have been many times I have brought items to be checked for wear I always forget this), to be repaired, cleaned and polished and they are always returned like they are brand new.
Thanks Gary, I know you are a small business and times are tough but I hope you continue to provide the great service I have experienced throughout the years for many years to come.


Very pleasant experience

I called up inquiring about a specific Christmas gift for my wife, and I was very impressed with the level of professionalism and attention given to my request. Mr. Blando is clearly is very knowledgeable, and helped me to articulate exactly what I was looking for, and tracked down precisely what I had in mind (and within my specified budget). Very pleasant experience overall.

Most knowledgeable jeweler

Mr. Blando is the most knowledgeable jeweler I’ve ever met and I’ve been going to his shop for many years. He has a wide variety of jewelry and can design anything your heart desires and he’s a good guy.

Executed flawlessly

Gary took care of me by resizing my wife’s wedding band. He provided excellent create a direction and executed flawlessly. Very happy with his services and will be back. Such a great man.


Gary saved the day!

Gary saved the day! I got a unique engagement ring off of Etsy that was everything I wanted, but had a few structural flaws. Gary was able to tighten the prongs on my band to help secure the stone better. He even gave it a much needed polish. No retail stores said they could fix it due to the irregular shape, but Gary was able to do it for a very reasonable price. I genuinely recommend him for any of your jewelry needs.
