Master Bench Jeweler – Rodney Keller

Haydon & Company is committed to providing expertise in fine jewelry — that’s why we house only the best jewelers in the Raleigh area. Trained by German gold masters and certified by several gem and diamond societies, Master Bench Jeweler Rodney A. Keller has what it takes to make a remarkable piece of jewelry.

Dedicated to the tradition of German jewelers while always looking for new innovations, Keller creates quality fine jewelry with rare craftsmanship.

Having achieved the highest distinction in European goldsmithing by obtaining the title of German Certified Goldschmiedemeister in 1995, Keller next conquered the coveted fourth level of the Jewelers of America Bench Professional Certification: Certified Master Bench Jeweler.

The Master Bench Jeweler Certification is granted only to jewelers who “demonstrate mastery at all skill levels.” Over the course of a year, Keller engaged in a rigorous battery of exams that demonstrated his mastery in the craft. The Jewelers of America examiners require that the Master Bench Jewelers they certify to be artisans with integrity: Keller’s work was exquisite and beyond reproach.

Keller’s achievement of Certified Master Bench Jeweler is the supreme acknowledgment of the quality that is self-evident in his work and his craftsmanship. Combining innovative design with choice expertise, Rodney Keller provides the highest quality fine jewelry to Haydon and Company’s clients.
