Precious Metals Sudbury opened in December of 2006. Located on the first floor of a charming farm house built in 1790 in the Historic King Philip District, the store features the original hand hewn hardwood floors and brick hearth. Since opening, Precious Metals Sudbury has won numerous awards including the Reader's Choice awards for Best Jewelry Store in Sudbury each year since 2007, multiple regional Reader's Choice awards for Best Jewelry Store in the Boston Metro West area, and WeddingWire.com's Couples' choice award for 2016.
Our main goals are providing our clients with an easy, transparent jewelry purchasing experience and making sure that every customer is 100% in love with their design. We encourage customers to ask questions and provide feedback through every stage of the purchasing and design process. We take the time to listen.
We are constantly striving to become a more responsible business. In 2014 we decided to start carrying laboratory grown diamonds and focusing on both lab and Canadian mined diamonds as alternatives to traditional “Conflict Free” diamonds. We also sell Fair Trade gemstone and gems mined in the United States such as Montana Sapphires.
All of our metals that we use in our jewelry are recycled.
We have transitioned to packaging that is recycled, made in the USA, and/or made in fair trade workshops.
