Fine Jewelry in downtown Portsmouth New Hampshire
Unique Handmade Rings & Jewelry
Located in the historic seacoast city of Portsmouth, NH, Lia Gormley Fine Jewelry designs and hand-fabricates intricate and custom designer gemstone jewelry. Known for her exquisite craftsmanship and delicate design, Lia uses 18K Gold, 22K Gold, Platinum and Silver to create unique jewelry for everyday wear, special occasion, wedding & engagement. Rings with precious gems, pendants with mixed metals, earrings and diamond jewelry are just some of the many pieces Lia creates. As a traditional Goldsmith, each piece is made one-of-a-kind with attention to timeless jewelry design and quality.
If you have genuine diamonds, rubies or sapphires that have been in your family for a long time, or just a short while, and you'd like to have them re-set into one of my custom jewelry designs, feel free to bring them in on a visit or set an appointment on my contact page. This is one of the most common things I do for my repeat customers and it's a fresh idea to bring the jewelry in your safe and give it a new life in a new design. Browse my many one-of-a-kind designs in my downtown Portsmouth, NH jewelry studio and store.
In my Portsmouth jewelry store you'll see a nice selection of my most recent work, but typically many of my customers have special requests, such as a certain stone type, a color of gold, Platinum, unique sizing, etc.
Because I make each piece using traditional hand craftsmanship, these special orders are often made entirely and uniquely for you. As this is my most popular request, please understand that the time to make your piece will depend on how many other orders I have and other events such as shows that I may be attending or preparing for. Lead time is typically 2-6 weeks.
LOCAL & INDEPENDENT
Lia is a native of New Hampshire and lives on the Seacoast. Lia's Portsmouth jewelry store and studio is a small boutique gallery where Lia designs and creates custom engagement rings, everyday jewelry, commitment rings, earrings, pendants and more. Working in Portsmouth, NH gives Lia creative energy where she knows she's part of a local community of independent artists and residents that appreciate and support local shop owners and the arts. Portsmouth is a major tourism destination but is also home to many businesses, giving the city a diversity of local year round residents and tourists visiting for the first time or returning year after year.
Being independent and working on each piece completely by hand affords Lia creative freedom. There are no targets to hit or a board to answer to. It's just Lia with a little help from family. Portsmouth is a small city with big potential and seeing tremendous growth. It is getting harder and harder for local independents, maybe especially artists to work and thrive in the downtown area. Lia's grateful for the supportive community around her. After all, Portsmouth is special because of the individuals that make it special.
The Jewelry store in Portsmouth is located on Ladd St, just near the heart of market square. Convenient garage and nearby metered parking. When visiting the seacoast area of NH, stop in for a first hand look at Lia's gallery selections and in her studio to see what pieces she might be making next.
