I'm Chelsea Swank. My father opened his jewelry store in 1973 in Downtown Portland it was called The Silver Hammer. Over the years he has had a few different storefronts and over time the name changed to Gary Swank Jewelers. In 2011 I started hanging around the shop and quickly became enamored. I decided to go full-time here and apprentice my father to learn the jewelry trade. Shortly after I started here my younger brother, Grayam, decided to come on board as well, he was here until about 2015. We all do our own CAD designs and have our own unique aesthetics.
All of the work is done here in our shop, from the idea to the wax, casting, metalwork, and stone setting and polishing and finishing.
How I cater to Offbeat Brides
I couldn’t be more pleased with this ring! It is so beautifully unique! I cannot wait to propose to my girlfriend with this ring - it couldn’t be more perfect! So grateful to the seller for providing such a high quality, alternative style!
