Jost Jewelers was established in 1982 by Walter Jost, a master jeweler trained in Germany. Throughout the years he grew Jost Jewelers to become Wisconsin’s most trusted repair and manufacturing shop by focusing on serving other jewelers’ repair needs in an efficient cost-effective manner. Walter personally trained all the young goldsmiths he hired and many have gone on to successful careers on their own.
When Walter wanted to retire he picked a trusted long-time goldsmith Radu Stoica to succeed him. Before joining Jost Jewelers, Radu worked as a hand engraver at the Romanian Mint and was trained by Harvey Stubenvoll at his goldsmith shop in Shawano, WI. Over more than 20 years Radu became well versed in ring sizing, then setting and re-tipping, then finally CAD and casting. Radu along with all the highly experienced goldsmiths in the shop always find a way to do the difficult jobs even when others turn them down. They can also create a new piece of jewelry that will leave the customer breathless.
Mircea “Mitch” Prejbeanu, the other partner at Jost Jewelers, is not a goldsmith and will leave those duties to the experts due to fear of injuring himself or others around him! Mitch handles the customer service portion of the business along with quality control employees that assure jobs go out of the shop at the highest standard possible. Call us, email us or come see us in person, you’ll receive the same friendly service. We are continually investing in our employees and our equipment to improve our quality and efficiency.
By combining Old World craftsmanship with New Age technology we proudly carry on the tradition of Jost Jewelers!
