The jeweler my family had been using for quite some time decided to close up and retire a couple years ago, and we've never gotten around to finding a new one.  My girlfriend has some things that she needs resized/repaired, and I'm looking to have something made as a gift.  Any quality jewelers that you guys know of?  St. Paul side of the Cities preferable, but I'm not picky if it's worth the drive.

ETA:  The highlighted comment above would have nothing to with changing the relationship status with my girlfriend (at least for the forseeable future), so eject pics/comments are unneccesary

If you don't find one in the cities you like, I'd recomend Chappuis Jewelry in Faribault. link (Their website is just a page with their address and phone number.)

Family owned/operated for a couple generations, iirc. Nathan (the son) custom made my wive's wedding and engagement rings off of a design she gave him. He did a great job with that, and she gets compliments on it every where she foes.

In Bloomington on Lyndale Ave is Wixson's. They have always treated us very well. They have on-site jewelers and designers that do some pretty impressive work.

+1 on RF Moellers. I know the family and they're good folks with a solid family business and high quality products with well trained and helpful jewelers.

I may have some bias; but my father is a goldsmith at Look Jewelers in Riverdale(Coon Rapids).
They do their all their own work, on-site.  As well as contract work for other retailers.
My dad's been in the field for over 30 years.
