Office of the President


 

"I can not thank Gipprich Jeweler's enough! Richard Gipprich went over and above to help my family. Our father is very sick and he wanted to replace a sapphire necklace my mother lost a long time ago. Knowing time was of the essence, he made our mother the most beautiful sapphire necklace in 2 days!! We really can't thank you enough for making that happen for us!"


The Sprecher Family



"My wife and I had our wedding rings updated and they turned out stunningly. They created our first rings, now our 10yr. updates, and I guarantee our future modifications. Thanks for being friendly to my family!"
