Episode 5: All That Sparkles at Tompkins Jewelers

February 26, 2018 12:04 PM | Melissa Haley (Administrator)

Ruby, Jade, Citrine, Amethyst, Pearl, Diamond, Silver and Gold – it’s amazing what beauty lays within our earth! Further, it’s magical to see how raw materials become priceless adornments.

Our visit to Tompkins Jewelers in Ashland highlights the wide range of expert knowledge and stunning results that come from decades of experience in handcrafting jewelry. Sure, the display cases of lovely pieces twinkle and catch you eye…but it’s what goes on behind-the-scenes that really blows your mind.

In this video, you’ll see how metal gets heated to 1400-1500° while resizing a ring, how pearls are hand-strung on silk and nylon, an array of specialty tools, a smorgasbord of gemstones and even more exquisite sparklies.

Shelia Tompkins - second generation shop owner, jeweler and certified gemologist – has a passion for matching jewelry with its owner’s taste, wishes and lifestyle. Every piece of jewelry she or jeweler-on-staff Amy M. Shady create, repair or clean is done to the highest standard. Attention to detail is everything when an item is no bigger than a coin, and the projects in their work box display everything from watches to rings to broaches and more.

We hope you enjoy watching the video as much as our Hanover Chamber visitors, Marianne Powell and Melissa Miller, enjoyed creating it. Thanks again to Sheila Tompkins and the Tompkins Jewelers staff for giving us this tour. Let’s sparkle!
