Carreras Welcomes the Noam Carver Wedding Collection to Richmond


Canadian designer Noam Carver has been making jewelry has entire adult life. At 18, he apprenticed with a master jeweler in Montreal. That experience laid the foundation for his career as one of the top custom jeweler makers in the world.

Carreras is now an authorized Noam Carver dealer. The company will carry a bridal ring series. Customers can experience the rings online or in the store. His rings are lasting treasures that she will love forever.

Carver says his design process involves imagination, translation and implementation. He begins by thinking and dreaming about the piece. He then uses drawings and 3D printing to bring the design to life. Finally, the piece is assembled with some of the finest metals and stones in the world.

“With computer design and 3D printing, I harness the latest technological advances to expand my art, creating with a level of precision and excellence higher than ever thought possible,” Carver says.

Carver pays an inordinate amount of attention to detail. He wants his rings to be flawless and makes sure every aspect of a piece of jewelry is perfect.

That effort has won him numerous awards. They include: MJSA, Canadian Jeweler, National Jeweler, National Jeweler “Best Of”, and the 2017 Centurian Designer Award for an “Edwardian-inspired enameled engagement ring with a contemporary twist.”

Save 20% on Jewelry Repairs and Appraisals!

Carreras Jewelers is holding its annual jewelry repair event from July 16-31. Save 20% on jewelry repair (excluding watches), pearl restringing, insurance appraisals, and custom jewelry design work.   

Jewelry Repair work includes: 

  • Re-size, clean and polish rings
  • Re-set, tighten or replace stones
  • Refurbish mountings, re-tip and replace prongs
  • Shorten or lengthen chains
  • Change clasps
  • Solder charms
  • and more!

Have you been procrastinating getting that necklace restrung? It’s recommended that you restring a pearl necklace regularly, as the string can become worn out and break easily. Pearls that are worn often should be restrung yearly, and pearls that are worn only on special occasions should be restrung every two to three years.

Other pearl jewelry work includes:

  • Tighten and strengthen your old or damaged strand of pearls
  • Restyle and update your design
  • Restring your colorful beads and dye the silk to blend with your beads

Are you looking to create a piece of custom jewelry?  Our team will work with you and redesign a current piece or build a new piece from scratch.  We can even design jewelry to match a current piece in your collection, and during the sale, the work is being offered at a 20% discount.

Update your Jewelry Insurance Appraisals at a 20% discount during the sale (up to 10 items). You will need to call and make an appointment with Tami Toms, our Certified Gemologist and Certified Gemologist Appraiser. By choosing an AGS-certified Appraiser, you can rest assured that you’re working with a professional who has been trained and certified. Our appraiser will thoroughly inspect your jewelry and get you a value that is as accurate as possible.  We recommend getting your jewelry appraised by us every three to five years to update your insurance policy so you will be covered in the case of loss, or to get a measurement on your investment.

For more information or to schedule your appraisals, call 804-282-7018.
