About Us

Founded in Ogunquit, Maine in 1972, Summerwind Jewelers & Goldsmiths is a full-service fine jewelry store located in Downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, serving the Seacoast area for 45 years. We specialize in Ideal Cut Diamonds, Colored Gemstones, Engagement Rings, Wedding Bands, Pearls, Unique Designer Jewelry, and Innovative Custom Design.


When Mel founded Summerwind, the store was very different than what you see today. He mostly sold gold and silver hand fabricated bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. He would work sun – up to sun – down hand crafting various pieces while interacting with shopp ers. We have customers that were first introduced to Summerwind and Mel in that small boutique shop; they still cherish and wear the jewelry they purchased from him over 45 years ago.
