about us


In 1986, Russ and Mimi Brummitt opened Ora Designers/ Fine Jewelers in Raleigh, North Carolina.  We were blessed to have a family run jewelry store with wonderful employees for thirty years. With over 65 years of combined fine jewelry experience, we have decided to take our expertise to a more personal level for our clients.  In June of 2016, we opened Brummitt Jewelry Design Studio.



We know the importance and value of personal service, especially with the purchase of jewelry.  Retail stores can be quite intimidating, impersonal, "cookie cutter " places wth expensive retail overhead. We decided to get away from that and be a concierge jeweler by catering to our customers on a BY APPOINTMENT one-on-one basis. We offer all the benefits of a regular jewelry store, but without the pressured and hectic retail environment.


We are proud of our Jewelry Design Studio! As your jewelry concierge, our focus is that of personal service. We are working with clients on a one-on-one basis by appointment in our private studio location at Pembroke Square (on Six Forks Road) in Raleigh's Midtown.  We offer a stylish and comfortable work experience. We want people to feel like they are in our home. 


We offer an experience. Brummitt Jewelry Design Studio is not a cookie cutter jewelry store. In fact, we are not a jewelry store with show cases at all. We are your personal jewelry concierge. No pressure, no stress, no retail overhead, just the service and expertise and time you deserve!  We are purveyors of beautiful jewelry, from estate to modern or traditional to eclectic pieces. Your jewelry wardrobe needs to fit your every day life style and be built to your own personal style.


Our specialty is rare colored gemstones and diamonds in all ranges of size and budgets sourced globally. 

Russ has been designing and crafting jewelry for over 39 years. Custom and commissioned jewelry design is the main focus of our studio. You may want to repurpose your old worn or outdated pieces into something special just for you. We call that "RECYCLED MEMORIES!"  


Have you been dreaming about a beautiful colored gemstone or are you ready to upgrade your diamond?  Let us help you realize your dreams! From creating classic tailored designs to contemporary fashion jewelry, Russ will work with you through out the process from start to finish in creating your special piece.


All pieces are designed and finished in our studio. We will stay in touch with the client as the piece goes through the process.  We love to document its journey by photographing the different stages! We have even had clients come in and cast their piece in the shop! They get to "birth" their jewelry!


Our mission is to offer you the absolute best jewelry expertise and customer service through our knowledge and passion of fine jewelry.  We want to help you find or create that special piece of jewelry that expresses the love for someone, celebrates an occasion or milestone, or to fulfill a desire of a piece that makes you happy and can cherish and be proud of forever. Our mission is to satisfy your every jewelry need!

Whether you need a simple ring cleaning, repurposing your old jewelry into a new design, appraisal documentation evaluated and written by GIA Graduate Gemologist Mimi Brummitt, or assistance in acquiring that special piece of jewelry you've always dreamed about we are here to serve you.  We have access to anything the jewelry industry has to offer, so let us be your personal concierge jeweler.
