Custom Engagement & Wedding Rings
9th & 9th Jewelers started as "The Vug" a unique establishment in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1989. Selling one of a kind rocks, gems, fossils, minerals, gifts, and jewelry that they mined and sought after with their own hands with their children in tow. Rocks then became gems, gems became jewels, and jewels were placed into jewelry...
25 years later Joe replaced the dinosaur bones and petrified wood with diamonds and precious gems. Still a rock hound at heart, he seeks the treasures of the World with his wife and kids, hoping to find something that they can turn into the next heirloom for your family, by the next generation of our family.

Everyone knows that the pressures of finding the perfect ring can be a little intimidating. When we initially met with Joe, who was recommended by a friend, we knew that designing a custom ring would be an exciting process. Joe worked with us every step of the way whether it was making minor tweaks to our design or having an array of center diamonds to pick from and thinking through every small detail to make sure our ring could be durable and beautiful. You will not be disappointed if you choose Joe as your custom jeweler!
There are not words enough to capture how absolutely charming Joe and his son are. I stopped in to have my wedding ring repaired. They did an amazing job while also becoming an u expected highlight in the day. This place is the true neighborhood shop, and you feel the connection to the community as soon as you walk in. I won’t go anywhere else.
Joe the Jeweler is the best jeweler you could ever ask for. He helped both my husband and I buy our wedding rings and he's resized mine three times since 2020. He always makes sure we're happy with our rings, he works within your budget, and he cares about the products you walk out the door with. You definitely know you're working with an artisan who is an expert at his craft and wants you to have the best experience possible.
Best jewelry shop in SLC, great friendly customer service. Super personalized. Joe is a great all around guy and very knowledgeable in the business. The shop has a very professional ambiance, he will take good care of your needs/wants with amazing quality! I’ve seen first hand in his work. The next time I’m buying a ring, this guy is making it. Plus there’s a nice coffee shop next door! Highly recommend!
We're very glad to recommend Joe and the 9th & 9th Jewelers. We've had a lovely experience and Joe was so helpful, even though we weren't spending an arm and a leg on a super-fancy custom piece. He helped us to find something we like and his approach and business practices should be the talk of the trade. I've shopped at the diamond district in Boston, at big box stores, at other smaller, family-run stores, and 9th & 9th is where we landed - comfortably. We recommend this store.
Joe is great at what he does - making amazing custom jewelry - and is also just a terrific guy to work with. I first worked with Joe to design and create an engagement ring while living on the road with my wife-to-be. Fully remote, Joe was super communicative and helpful, sending me tons of design iterations in CAD files to review and critique. I learned a ton from him about the process, and he was always so happy to talk through everything. He even sent me a 3D printed prototype to look at before buying the real thing. My wife absolutely loves her ring and it’s all thanks to Joe! He even did some maintenance on it for free recently. Great experience working with Joe, highly recommend!
Joe! Joe is so wonderful and made our engagement so special. Him and his shop are both so eclectic and unique. The second I gave him a call to learn more about his process he was helpful, knowledgable, and sent me an email with all of the information we needed immediately after hanging up.
We had an initial consult with Joe about what we were looking for, and he sat with us for almost an hour explaining the differences in rings, diamonds, qualities, etc. Another couple came in during our consult and he remembered so many details about them, it truly feels like he has a deep knowledge and memory of each of his customers.
After shopping around at some of the bigger chains, it just didn't feel right to get a ring from one of those stores, we wanted to support a local place, and Joe made the process seamless and so special, turning around a ring in a short amount of time, which was a complete surprise to me.
He has quite the portfolio of designs, and although my ring was a simple one, he has a variety of different designs that he's able to create online. He has a quick design turnaround time and is able to send a 3D design within 24 hours, for free. He can also make 3D moldings of ring designs for you to try on before making the design decision.
A truly wonderful experience here, and we are forever grateful for Joe's customer service in making our engagement so special. Thank you thank you, Joe!
It has been an absolute pleasure working with joe the jeweler. He is a Salt lake local and legend - and puts a lot of care into his work (also has decades of experience). It shows! - my fiancé absolutely loved her ring. Without a doubt I would recommend him to anyone
