Custom Designs

Having a piece of jewelry custom designed can be a fascinating and rewarding process. From start to finish, you are able to see the project progress through many of its stages. It all starts with you. Whether you are looking for something specific or if you have multiple aspects that you would like melded into one design, from us supplying all the materials, to you wanting some of your stones remounted into a fresh new design. It's all possible, easy, and exciting. Wearing a piece of jewelry that you helped to create will give you much joy and happiness for years to come. And it all starts with you coming into Long Jewelers.

The process starts with the designer getting a feel for types of jewelry that move you. Do you like free-form, symmetrical, classic, or modern? Long Jewelers can do as much or as little as you desire. From resetting a stone to designing a complete new ring or whatever you desire, Long Jewelers can make your jewelry dreams come true.


Long Jewelers is the premier provider of jewelry and gemstone appraisal services in Virginia Beach and the Tidewater area. We serve individual customers, estate planning professionals, and anyone who desires the best in jewelry appraisals.

Although we provide many types of appraisals, the most commonly requested are those for insurance purposes. We work closely with our customers to offer their clients state-of-the-art insurance appraisals on new and pre-worn jewelry. Most items can be appraised while our customers wait. During the examination, each piece of fine jewelry is examined thoroughly for condition, size, weight, shape, color and clarity characteristics with all details noted sufficiently to perform the appraisal. This involves photographing each diamond and gemstone and recording serial numbers with trademark or copyrights, hallmarks, etc., to show authenticity. The appraisal report includes a full description of each jewelry item, along with a digital image. Our clients can leave with their jewelry and, typically receive their report that day or within one or two business days.

All of our appraisals adhere to the highest standards for testing, laboratory equipment, and appraisal methodology.

We Buy Gold

Trust The Top-Rated Jeweler In Tidewater When Selling Your Precious Metals. It seems like everywhere you look today, someone else is hanging up a "We Buy Gold, We Pay Top Dollar" sign. There is no need to submit to an embarrassing pawn shop experience, or visit a "We Buy Gold" hole in the wall establishment. You don't have to mail your items away to someone you don't know.

Why Sell to Us?

First and Foremost, We are generous & we make easy to understand offers with immediate payment.

  • A+ Rated & Accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
  • All of our buyers are Gemological Institute of America (GIA) educated & licensed.
  • We are recognized jewelry buying professionals
  • Family owned & operated business with over a 30 year local history
  • Private, upscale environment. We are NOT a pawn shop. You won't find any bars on our windows or used tools next to the jewelry!

People Often Ask Us How Our Simple Buying Process Works, Here Is the Answer:

We begin by providing the spot price of gold. Your items will be separated and weighed in front of you.

If your items are unmarked (10kt, 14kt) we will test them & show you the result of the test. You won't have to take our word for it.

We then make a generous offer based on the weight, spot price, and condition of the items.
