Years ago, back in my High School days, many after school hours were spent next to my father’s work bench learning his profession, a gold and platinum smith. Here I am, 60 years later, and still doing it and loving it. After retiring for a short period, I soon discovered that it was not for me. I opened a precious metal buying store which developed into a jewelry store, located at 1 Buffalo St, in Staub Square, Hamburg NY. We specialize in engagement rings and wedding bands. I am proud to say that our mountings are of the latest styles and I have made many Hamburg residents happy. Bench work is still my first love, The store is equipped with the latest tools. Repairs and special orders are done on the premises. I have followed my fathers example and have trained my daughter and grandson to identify precious metals. I am now in the process of training my grandson, Michael Baker, the art of making and repairing jewelry. It gives me great pleasure in passing the family craft to another member of my family. Our philosophy is “a happy customer is part of the reward.”

At Ray Crinzi Jewelers, all repairs and special orders are done on premises.


The beautiful filigree ring that was your grandmother’s can be returned to its original new condition.


If you have a specific design for a piece of jewelry, We are  able to make it. Bring a picture of the design or your ideas, and together we will create it. This is what we do best. 


With my background as a bench jeweler, I can help you select a mounting that best complements your gems to be remounted in a modern setting. All work is done on premises.

Custom Ring Guards

Large knuckles are no longer a problem with my built in spring. It will keep your ring in place without turning.


My many years of buying and selling jewelry qualifies me to give accurate and professional appraisals.

Gold Buying

If your like most people, you have jewelry in your jewelry box that you haven’t worn in years! The price of gold is so historically high right now that you can make a substantial amount of money selling those broken or unwanted items.  We also do in home gold buying parties.

    “Just wanted to let you know that Katie ended up accepting my proposal.  She thinks the ring is beautiful and we are both very happy.
    Once again we cant thank you enough, she has gotten more than a few compliments on it already.
    You made it look easy and her family and friends were impressed as I seemed to really know what I was doing.  I just let them know that it was not necessarily the case and I just happen to know an outstanding Jeweler. “

    Thank you,
