About Us

We are a small father-daughter owned business that prides ourselves in providing you with the finest products and services available. With a laid-back, homey atmosphere, we, and our staff, are here to assist and educate you on a purchase or repair, not simply sell you something. True professional knowledge and expertise are what you can expect when visiting us, and we’re here to answer any of your fine jewelry questions and concerns.

Since 1976, Joe has been providing individuals with expertise in jewelry sales, design, and repair. Throughout the years, he has received multiple design awards for his unique hand-forged pieces. He is a Certified Senior Management Professional, the area's first Certified Jeweler, a Past-President of the Illinois Jewelers Association, and received his Bachelor's Degree in Geology.


Erin started her career in 2006 as a fourth-generation in the jewelry industry. She received her Accredited Jewelry Professional certification through the Gemological Institute of America and has completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Small Business Management. In 2016, her design made her a top 10 finalist in Canadamark's international design competition, and in 2022, she was selected for Jewelers of America's national 20 Under 40 list.

We are your premier source for bridal, fine-colored gemstones, and Southern Illinois' only source for the Sirius Star - the world's brightest diamond. Our specialties range from jewelry repair to custom design work. You don’t have to worry about who’s working on your treasured pieces of jewelry or where they’re being shipped off to because everything is done in-house, by our professional and expert jewelers.

Unlike many other stores, we’re able and proud to say that the majority of our pieces are all created here in the United States by small designers and manufacturers, instead of mass-produced overseas - with the exception of some pieces that are produced for us in Italy and Canada. We handpick all of our pieces of jewelry, including all diamonds and gemstones, to ensure that you are getting the finest quality.


Because of all of this, and thanks to our wonderful clients, we were voted #1 Jewelry Store in Southern Illinois for 2019, 2020, and 2021! We cannot thank you enough for that.

At J. Bacher Fine Jewelry, we believe that you deserve the best and we're happy to provide you with it. Come and visit with our professional, friendly staff today. We’d love to meet with you!
