Pyramid Studios’ jewelry creations, born in their riverside shop in Downtown Ellsworth have been collected by four generations of Maine families and customer friends around the world. This kind of customer loyalty has helped Pyramid become one of the foremost jewelry stores in Maine.
Raised in Orono, the Herrington brothers studied engineering at UMO and EMVTI. After graduation, David attended Ireland’s prestigious National College of Art and Design. In 1982 David chose Ellsworth as home to Pyramid. The business has flourished thanks to a growing customer base and reputationfor quality workmanship, trusted customer service, fair prices and community involvement.
Old world techniques and artistry along with advanced equipment, like computer assisted design programs and a state of the art laser welder allow David and Don, both Master Goldsmiths, to explore new paths in jewelry design and allow for greater precision in jewelry repair and restorations.
“We enjoy creating new works and breathing new life into old jewelry. Your ring, your way is the mantra,” says David, “Pyramid’s CAD program allows customers to select from a limitless variety of diamonds, gemstones or a treasured family stone for setting into a wide variety of mountings that can be customized. We advise and guide to fit the ring with the customer’s tastes, budget, and lifestyle.”
Denise comments, “Innovation has helped us thrive rather than just survive in this era of sameness and big box stores. We work hard to provide value, friendly and sincere service for the customer while fostering a work atmosphere of creativity and ingenuity. To improve the customer experience, we are developing rich online content on our new ecommerce website and are connecting with customers through our blog and social media. This has kept us moving forward and the showroom stocked.”
Customer satisfaction is top priority at Pyramid Studios. Word of mouth is still their biggest draw. Don explains, “The jewelry speaks for itself. We hope the quality and pride shines in every piece. We strive to match the focus we give our jewelry with the effort given to customer service. Whether changing a watch battery or designing, each service gets our full attention.Customers recognize this and keep coming back.”
