Sholdt is about one Seattle family’s colorful history, beginning with Milton Sr’s purchase of a fledgling jewelry repair business in 1935. By the 3rd generation it had grown into “the” pre-eminent jewelry repair shop in the city. In the ‘80s, when most jewelry stores brought repairs in-house instead of using trade shops, the Sholdt trade shop adapted to the times by utilizing their own in-house design talent and master craftsmen to create a small custom line of fine jewelry. Today, the 4th generation, immersed in the jewelry world since childhood, continues with many of the same talented employees who have been with the company for 25 years or more! With so much accumulated knowledge and a deep understanding of diamonds, dedication to incomparable craftsmanship, and a history of quality and integrity, Sholdt’s engagement rings and wedding bands are award-winning and internationally recognized. The inspired designs, merging clean architectural lines with classic details like milgrain edges and channel-set diamonds, continue to embody a perfect blend of artistry, beauty and emotion that you will be proud to wear and pass along to your own future generations.
