Nelson Estate Jewelers is nestled right in the heart of Dobson Ranch in Mesa, Arizona. They specialize in unique custom designs, true vintage and antique pieces, and they have a wonderful jeweler on site for expert jewelry repair services. They also buy from the public, meaning you can bring your old unworn jewelry pieces or inherited coin sets and sell them for quick cash or use them in trade toward new treasures!
Owners David Nelson and his wife Aubrey sold all their assets (including 2 rental properties and a personal stash of gold and silver bullion) to give Nelson Estate Jewelers a running start back in 2017. David Nelson has been in the jewelry industry since he was just 15 years old and has worked for many of the big-name jewelers such as Ganem, Zales, Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, and E.D. Marshall Jewelers. David and Aubrey identified the need for an expert jeweler in their local community and recognized that the old way of doing things is antiquated. They set out to create a comfortable and friendly atmosphere with realistic and transparent pricing that respects every client looking to either treat themselves to fine jewelry or express their love to someone special with a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
Many people in the community stood behind David & Aubrey, some even got their hands dirty and assisted with the actual buildout of the shop to support what Nelson Estate Jewelers was striving to become. Local artists Daron Rogers and Angel Rogers Photography proudly display their art pieces in the showroom. Nelson Estate Jewelers loves to display local art pieces as a small way to give back to the community. They also only charge $5 for watch batteries and donate the proceeds to United Food Bank!
Currently, Nelson Estate Jewelers sells an average of 15 engagement rings per month, whether it be a stunning find in the case, a true period piece from the 1920’s, or a creative custom design built from scratch. David & Aubrey are so thankful to be a part of the special moments in their clients’ lives; engagements, weddings, anniversaries, and even birthdays and graduations. Since jewelry is all about self-expression and no two people are exactly alike, Nelson Estate Jewelers offers incredibly unique pieces as well as the ability to custom design any jewelry piece specific to the person wearing it.
Love for the Community
Nelson Estate Jewelers values its clients above all else; each client is seen, heard, and treated with respect. Rather than hard sales pitches, David & Aubrey focus on listening to needs. They work within specific budgets without sacrificing quality because they believe you shouldn’t have to break the bank to show someone how you feel. Building trust and friendships in their local community is far more important to them than playing insulting price games that you often find at big chain retail stores. The bottom line is that none of what Nelson Estate Jewelers has become would have been possible without the friends, family, and clients who stood behind them then and who continue to support them today.
