Remembering was 1928 but it seems like only yesterday! Granddad, Ralph Nelson, purchased an existing jewelry store in Spencer, Iowa, and renamed it Nelson Jewelry. His vision was to carry on the Nelson tradition, walking in the footsteps of his Dad, Nels Nelson, who owned a jewelry store in Forest City.

Nelson Jewelry is uniquely qualified to appraise your fine jewelry and gemstones. Our experienced staff has the background and gemological training to do a professional job of evaluating the current value of your precious keepsakes. While these items are priceless to you, it's important to remember that the value of the precious metal and gems that comprise your fine jewelry is constantly changing due to market conditions. Gold, for instance, has seen its value double over the past 10 years. Accurate appraisals are important because if your jewelry is ever lost, stolen or damaged, your insurance company will refer to the appraisal document to settle the claim.

With gold prices on the rise, your old jewelry box may be holding thousands of dollars' worth of treasure. Now is the best time to turn your old, broken and unwanted jewelry into cash. We will buy your old gold, silver and platinum jewelry, perhaps even as well as gold and silver coins, flatware and tea sets. We pay the highest prices according to the gold market at the time of trade and have an unmatched reputation for honesty and integrity.

A custom made item involves a significant time commitment both in concept, design and execution. The results speak for themselves. Imagine owning a high quality, finely crafted design made just for you - a composite of your desires and your ideas, along with our advice, design abilities and technical execution. There is nothing like the experience of having your engagement or wedding rings personalized and uniquely designed just for you. Re-designing your jewelry is also a great way to bring new life to a older piece.

We offer cleaning and restringing services for pearls and pearl jewelry. For security and durability it is best to restring pearl necklaces and bead jewelry at least every five years. Cultured pearls are often strung on silk thread with a knot between each pearl. This keeps the pearls from rubbing against each other and prevents all the pearls from cascading to the floor if the necklace was to break. Silk thread is susceptible to wear and tear, especially if you wear the necklaces all the time.

One of the most wonderful ways to personalize your new purchase is with a custom engraving. Our engraving specialists can add your heartfelt message in a number of different fonts and styles. When it comes to corporate gifts, we can engrave your company name and logo on precious metals, stainless steel, brass, and other materials. When the gift is unique and the moment is special, adding a message in your own words is the perfect touch. You'll be impressed with our cutting-edge technology and quick turnaround times.

Nelson Jewelry specializes in corporate and appreciation gifts, sales awards, participant awards and employee recognition solutions. More and more companies are recognizing that when they acknowledge the dedicated employees who make their business successful, they increase morale and generate even more business. Among the corporate incentive items we offer are Waterford Crystal, Seiko clocks, rings, pendants, watches, knives, plaques and trophies. Many of the items can be customized with the corporate logo and your employee's name.

Doesn't it sound strange to say? One hundred thirty-two new years have born, gave what they had to offer, and having made their mark, gained way for their successor. Back in 1885 we were a scant score of years past the War between the states. President Chester Arthur ceded the white house to Grover Cleveland. Our flag had 38 stars to her credit. AT&T promised instant communication, transferring voices over the wire! What next? The possibilities electricity had to offer were gaining the attention of a conclave of talented workers in New Jersey, headed by an insomniac, dyslexic renegade telegraph operator named Thomas Edison.
