Customer Reviews


Visionary design, expert craftsmanship, warmth and integrity - they've been my go-to jewelers for many years. Meticulous repairs, resizing, beautiful new pieces and the personal attention make Stefan Otter truly special. - Lorna Dawson

I have found this gem of a place to be unique in many ways. My taste is discerning in design and in cost and I find that Stefan Otter Fine Art Jewelers provides exactly that selection.

You will also find in Ms. Mariela, the owner, an informed jeweler as well as an individual who connects the desire of the heart to the right piece of jewelry. - Tabby Anvary

I appreciated that rather than a selling approach, there was a sharing of knowledge, so that I felt like I could make an intelligent selection that would bring pleasure for a long time

Stefan completed a custom design pendant for me that was spectacular! His knowledge of metals and how to shape and craft them for unique design resulted in a pendant that exceeded my expectations. - Caroline M.
