J.M Turner Goldsmith is a jewellery design and fabrication shop. We design and build jewellery to celebrate important milestones in your life. We build our jewellery not only to be comfortable and long lasting but also to reflect the wearer’s vision of beauty.
We came to Morinville to serve the community with it’s jewellery needs. We wanted to use our skills and experience in making and repairing jewellery, in a place where friends and family lived.
At J.M Turner Goldsmith you are able to sit down with the goldsmith/designer who will be creating your piece of jewellery. We work from a basic sketch into either a computer design which is a very detailed image of the finished piece or a wax model, that you can try on and see in three dimensions.
Jim has worked in the jewellery industry for 27 years. He has mastered many aspects of jewellery repair, and custom design. The custom goldsmithing and jewellery repair are all done on location.
Working in a small town we cover other aspects of people’s jewellery needs, such as retail jewellery, giftware, engraving and engravables, watch batteries and clocks.

Hi Jim and Dave, WOW! I can’t think of any other word to describe the work you guys did on my wedding band. It is beautiful and perfect! I shouldn’t be the least bit surprised as I know i’m going to you in the first place what type of quality, commitment and expertise to expect. Either way, I am thrilled and once again impressed. I know how much time and effort you put into making it perfect, and it sure is. I recognize that the cost to design and manufacture it was not what was initially quoted, and Adam and I both thoroughly appreciate your good business and commitment to your quote. You have no idea how much you have made our ring experience a positive one, especially with what trouble we experienced with Independent Jewellers. It just goes to show the quality and dedication that comes from a family owned business. So very much appreciated! As always, I hope you know that we will continue to bring our business your way, and continue to recommend you to others, as we have for years now. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
