If you are looking for a truly unique or custom-made jewelry piece for yourself or a loved one, look no further than Quinn’s Goldsmith in Woodbridge. Owner Terry Quinn is a 14-time award winning designer for his custom-made pieces, recently winning yet another national jeweler design competition in Phoenix this February. What makes Quinn’s designs even more unique is that he doesn’t use a CAD computer program like many other designers use – it is all hand-made customized by Quinn. The bracelet photo here is the most recent winner in the design competition.
“Most jewelers are merchants; they buy and sell merchandise for their customers,” said Quinn. “At Quinn’s Goldsmith we make things. We do buy product as needed, but we have the ability to create from scratch and imagination; it’s what makes us stand out.”
Terry Quinn and his wife, Joy Quinn, recently traveled to India and visited friends that own the largest diamond cutting factories in the country. “With over 1,000 employees cutting diamonds that were sourced in Africa and Russia, we saw the entire process from the uncut diamonds to all the steps leading up to the finished product,” said Quinn. “It was amazing to see all the processes taken to get a diamond to market. There, we were able to buy diamonds direct from the factory before the diamonds ever went to market, so we are having a huge diamond sale at our store on March 29, 30 and 31.”
The March 29-31 diamond sale will include up to 50% off on everything diamond in the store. They are also offering 36-month 0% interest financing – no interest till 2022 – for those that need to finance their diamond purchase.
“From jewelry repairs to custom designs, we have a very large selection of all types of fine jewelry,” said Quinn. They also have Quinn’s custom designs finished and ready for sale which can be further customized with your favorite stones or colors the same day. By keeping over 100 of Quinn’s designs in stock every day, you can buy a custom piece and get it the same day.
Prices for the custom pieces range in price from $160.00 in Sterling silver up to around $30,000.00 with Diamonds, Gold, and Platinum. They also have 5 bench jewelers to handle any repair or custom piece, 2 GIA-certified appraisers, and a staff of sales consultants to help customers in any way they can.

Their goal as the premier fine jeweler for over 28 years has been to provide customers with the highest level of service, attention, and integrity.
