I have been a Christian all of my life, thanks to my parents, and it was in Sunday school that I learned a fundamental belief that God sent His Son Jesus to die for my sins.
Throughout my life, I always had an interest in the jewelry business, including working at retail jewelry stores while completing my degree. I came to Indianapolis after accepting a job in the pharmaceutical industry, but as time went on, I felt increasingly called to work in the jewelry business. After much prayer, I finally opened my business January 2, 1995.
It is an honor to be a part of the special moments in people’s lives, whether it’s picking out the perfect engagement ring to start their life together or restoring a precious family heirloom passed down for generations. I also have compassion for the circumstances that bring people in to liquidate their pieces, whether it’s the result of a relationship ending, a death or a bad choice.
Without hesitation, I can say that God has richly blessed this business. I love my job. I love the look on people’s faces when I tell them I’m actually able to give them more than they were looking for. I am truly excited and expectantly watching to see how God will continue to work in and through this business. “But where can wisdom be found? … It cannot be bought with the finest gold, nor can its price be weighed out in silver.” (Job 28:12a, 15)
