Welcome to Postgate fine Jewelers!

George and Suzan Postgate are the owners. We design and make fine custom jewelery in silver, gold, precious, and semi precious stones. We work in many different styles from Art Nouveau and Deco to Ancient Celtic with Scottish and Irish designs a specialty.

During the renaissance the art of jewelry making was considered the “Queen of the Arts.” Sculptors, painters, and other artists apprenticed with a jeweler before branching off to pursue their own form of artistic expression because a jeweler had to be proficient in all of the arts in order to design and create jewelry. This is how we think of the art of jewelry making.

We design pieces that we hope will surprise and delight our customers on our own as well as making custom pieces to fulfill a customer's dreams. This is one of the aspects of our work that delights us because we never know what artistic adventures and challenges a customer's design will lead us to? There is nothing we enjoy more than exceeding our customers expectations with a beautiful creation. 

If you are interested in a custom piece. You will be able to get an idea of the process we use when we work with our customers. You can look beneath the surface, to see images of pieces as they are being made and their designs are being worked out. You can see several pieces when they are still in the wax. We send images of waxes like these to customers who can then send us their feedback and help us in our quest to make them their most memorable and loved treasures. you will also find images of many of those same pieces finished.

We have many images of custom and show pieces on these pages that we have done over the years ( 1969-present ). These are very unusual as well as beautiful so take a peek and let us know how you like them. They may even give you ideas that will lead to our making you something very special.

For the least environmental impact we use only recycled silver and gold from Hoover and Strong Refiners. 

All of our stones are natural and of high quality unless otherwise noted. We also use ancient coins and artifacts in our work.

We do a tour of select Highland Games during the summer months where you can see us and our work in person.

    We do not have a shop that is set up for walk in sales in Truckee. We can arrange to meet customers in town to discuss projects if needed though. The best way to see our work is to visit us at one of the Scottish Highland games where we show our work . 

    These include The Sacramento games in Woodland the end of April, The Costa Mesa games the end of May, The San Diego Games in Vista near the end of June, The Seattle games the end of July, the San Francisco games in Pleasanton the first weekend of September, and the Longs Peak games in Estes Park the second weekend of September.
