A Family’s Passion for Their Craft

by Ruth Cohen

Spivak Jewelers is unlike any other jeweler in the region, and is the only stop you’ll need to make for all of your jewelry needs. They provide an in-store experience that feels like you are in your own living room, but are available to answer any questions you have by phone—or Facetime and Skype if necessary. Spivak Jewelers offers a 110 percent lifetime diamond upgrade with a guarantee of conflict-free diamonds, as well as a full range of jewelry services provided by a family of jewelry mavens who know the business inside and out. They are master crafters whose lifetime passion is providing you with the best service and jewelry you can imagine.

“Our mission is to take customer service to a new level, and to make every client feel like they have the exclusive jewelry buying experience,” says Gary Spivak.

Gary and his son Josh have been working together in the jewelry industry since Josh was 6 and attended industry shows with his father. Together, they have made the Spivak name the most trusted name in jewelry in South Jersey. “We do things for every price-point,and we stand behind it. This is a great outlet for us to exercise our creativity and produce wearable art,” Josh explains.

Gary brought his love of art with him when he and his parents immigrated to America from Russia with nothing but the clothes on their backs and a strong work ethic. He began as a bench jeweler in Philadelphia, and molded his passion and skills into a fine craft, winning national and regional awards for his designs, and earning a reputation as a trusted consultant, buyer and jewelry artist. Josh has also mastered his craft, enabling him to work alongside his father and share his passion.

If you’re seeking the perfect engagement ring or jewelry gift, Gary and Josh can help you find exactly what you are looking for in their own designs or from the top designers they offer, including Verragio—the industry’s leading bridal designer. If you have a unique design in mind, they will create it for you.

Josh says, “We own all our diamonds, so we can offer the best prices. We have an extensive inventory of GIA-certified stones. If you can’t find what you want, our specialty is acquiring it for you quickly, without commitment, at the best price.”

With a master jeweler on staff, as well as multiple GIA-trained specialists, you can be confident that you know everything there is to know about what you’re purchasing, and that you are doing it at the best price. There is no middleman. You are going directly to the source by coming to Spivak Jewelers.

They also provide sizing, jewelry and watch repair, engraving and appraisal services, and will work with you to buy, sell or trade jewelry you no longer wear. “We do everything in-house, so there is no need to worry about your jewelry. We treat every piece as though it is one of our own family heirlooms,” Gary explains.

“When we design a piece of jewelry for someone, it’s special to them, but it’s also specialtous. It’s hard to part with those pieces, but we are thrilled that someone is going to love it as much as we do, and will wear and enjoy it, and pass it down as a family heirloom,” says Josh.

It really is all about family and relationships. After 35 years in the business, Gary and Josh opened Spivak Jewelers in September, on Route 70 in Cherry Hill. Their new space, which includes a fireplace, espresso bar and inviting décor, instantly brings a sense of family and home to mind. That’s exactly how they want you to feel. They want all of their customers to leave feeling as if they’ve visited with family, and that they can trust the information, guidance, advice and product they receive there.

“We built our store to match our personality,” Josh says. “You come in as a guest and leave as a family member. We look to build long-term relationships. Like a trusted doctor, everyone needs a good jeweler. We’ve become that, and are proud of the work we do and the reputation we’ve built based on our work ethic, honor and integrity. But mostly, we are proud of the relationships we’ve created.”
