We shopped out Vail, and this was our favorite store. Very unique jewelry that sets them apart from most.

Small jewelry store carries jewelry and artwork of the owner plus others. Primarily gold, silver, set stones. Unique pieces that are bold and unusual--definitely statement pieces rather than run of the mill rings, necklaces. Good place to find something you will not see anywhere else, and will feel great wearing.

I mistakenly left my walking stick/umbrella on a bench in the Lions Head area. After lunch and 2 hours later, went back to see if it was still there, AND IT WAS! I'm thinking thats pretty typical of the visors in and around Vail.

I have been wearing my wedding ring crafted by Jim Cotter for 36 years. Over the years his jewelry has continued to become even more dramatic. One of Vail's most enduring treasures, always worth visiting again.

Small compact shop with unusual and wearable fine jewelry. Didn't get to purchase on this trip but would consider on my next visit. Helpful inspired staff on the day we visited

This is perhaps one of the most interesting galleries I have ever been to. The work is truly outstanding and every pieces is hand made by artist around the country. Jim Cotter's work is truly amazing and each piece makes a statement. This is a must see in Vail!
