David Craig Jewelers: A local diamond in the jewelry business

by Tianna G. Hansen

Celebrating 40 years in the Bucks County community, David Craig Jewelers is a family-run business started by David Craig Rotenberg and his wife Debbi in 1980.

Debbi has been a Bucks County native all her life and the couple bought a home in Langhorne in 1979, deciding to put down roots and start a business in the area.

Whether you’re seeking a new piece of jewelry, a custom-made piece, or an appraisal with a skilled jeweler, you’ll find the expertise and careful attention at this local jeweler.

David has been in the business since 1964 and is a Certified Gemologist and Certified Gemologist Appraiser.

“At my store, you’ll walk in and be served by a professional jeweler,” says David.

All his employees are certified at various levels and possess the knowledge of the jewels they need to give you an expert professional opinion.

Not only that, but David Craig has a beautiful selection of the finest watches, earrings, bracelets, diamond rings and other distinguished jewelry that will set you apart and make you or your special someone shine!

They offer today’s hottest trends as well as timeless, iconic designs that will last a lifetime.

One thing that really sets David Craig Jewelers apart is their complete gem lab, an unusual and unique addition for a jewelry store.

“We can identify gem stones and diamonds using our state of the art equipment to measure the cut of different gems, measure specific gravity, and to magnify them so you can see inclusions in various gem material.”

This is something you won’t find at any other jeweler in the region.

“You name it, we can do it,” says David. “That’s what we’re all about.”
If you come in with an idea, David Craig Jewelers will work with you from the design process into the creation of any custom idea you can imagine.

They have a workshop on site where customers can sit in and help design the piece using various metals – silver and platinum to anything you can think of.

A special benefit of being such a well-known part of the Bucks County community is seeing local couples coming in to purchase engagement and wedding rings, then seeing wedding pictures which couples will send to David.

David enjoys knowing his customers on a personal level.

“We are very much entrenched in customers’ lives; we live here, we go to the same shops for breakfast, we’re familiar with the area and a part of the community.”

You won’t find that type of care and consideration from a chain store.

David is also widely sought after for his expertise in the field, often used in court cases to appraise the value of fine diamonds and jewelry and asked to consult with the government.

When you come to his store, you’re in the best of hands and can ensure you’ll receive an expertise you can’t find elsewhere in Bucks County.
