WHO WE ARE
Gold Wolff Jewelers
Gold Wolff Jewelers is a locally owned and operated jewelry store in Flagstaff, Arizona. Peter B. Wolff is the owner and a Certified Senior Bench Jeweler, his wife Regina handles Business Operations, and Caitlin Wolff is a Certified Bench Jeweler. We have about 400 square feet of retail space and about 500 square feet devoted to the production area. Our store is located in the Safeway Cedar Shopping center.
We are a small store, but we are big on service. We can create any jewelry item you wish, given enough time and money. Most of the time my clients do not have unlimited funds, so I have learned to work within my clients needs and see if we can create a lasting jewelry piece within your budget and timeframe.
We sell wedding bands, bridal sets, solitares, loose colored stones, engagement rings, colored stone jewelry, pearl strands and pearl jewelry, chains, earrings, and unique gifts. We work in platinum, gold, or sterling. We can special order any item you may desire, or make a beautiful item of jewelry to your specifications. We also offer diamond solitaires, wedding bands, bridal jewelry, colored gemstone pendants, rings, and earrings. We also carry earrings and pendants from The Petal Connection, and we offer services such as pearl restringing, appraisals, and rotary engraving.
You can design your own ring here on our website, or you can come into the store and we can help you with the process. If you have your own timeless treasures and you wish to incorporate them into your design, we are happy to accommodate that request.
We have a whole showcase full of colored gemstone earrings and pendants, all organized by the month. Possibly, the largest selection of colored gemstone earrings in all of Northern Arizona!
We have a half showcase devoted to pearls: strands, studs, pendants and rings. We have estate jewelry, a Bargain Corner ( where items are 50% off) and lots of sterling jewelry!
Caitlin Wolff grew up watching her parents create; her father in metal and wood, and her mother in the garden, pencil, cooking, & other craft mediums. It was a constant inspiration that grew into a passion for her. That passion really took root at the age of 13 when she began working here at Gold Wolff Jewelers. What began with just helping out around the shop, quickly grew into taking on more responsibility to include marketing and the social media presence of the company.
Caitlin decided on her career path at the age of 15, when she designed her very first piece of jewelry for her Mother’s birthday. Pete guided her through the process from start to finish; drawing the piece to scale, carving the wax, fabricating and putting the pieces together, and finally setting the stones.
She apprenticed under him for 10 years learning countless skills; from basic jewelry repair, wax carving to more advanced hand fabrication. In the fall of 2008, Caitlin broadened her skillset by attending the New Approach School for Jewelers Graduate Bench Jewelers program, where she learned advanced stone setting techniques, platinum hand fabrication and the basics of hand engraving from Jason Marchiafava.
In 2012 she became a Certified Bench Jeweler through Jewelers of America and then in early 2016 she finished obtaining her Diamond Diploma (DGA) through the Gemmological Association of Great Britain.
In 2016 she moved to Seattle, WA to begin working for Green Lake Jewelry Works and was able to expand her craft even more by learning from the truly amazing colleagues there to include bead setting, French setting, Pavé setting, hand made filigree and a little more hand engraving.
Caitlin enjoys taking continuing education classes, and has since completed the first level of the Jewelers of America Management Certification, and is actively working towards improving her jewelry rendering skills, as well as completing a gemology course through the Gemmological Association of Great Britain.

“In my extensive experience in the jewelry industry, I have come across many poor quality repairs. I have also witnessed the overall decline in the quality and craftsmanship of jewelry offered for sale in the big chain stores. I believe that quality goes beyond the Four C’s of Diamond grading. The cut, clarity, color, and carat weight of a diamond does add to the value and beauty of a piece of jewelry. Any customer who is considering a diamond purchase should understand these standards.”
“However many other factors add to the quality of a piece of jewelry, such as the thickness of the shank (bottom of the ring), the number, placement, and thickness of prongs, not to mention the overall weight of the piece. On chains and bracelets you should look for the jump rings to be soldered shut. Will the clasp open up accidentally? Is the clasp so heavy it walks around and ends up on the front of your neck? Because of my extensive jewelry repair background, I have learned what is required to produce a quality piece of jewelry. Everyday I strive to create and repair jewelry in the best manner possible.”
