Meet the team
Lauren D., Aspiring Gemologist
Lauren is a customer favorite - she's outgoing and bubbly, ready to help find the perfect gift or engagement ring design. She has been around many years now, and recently started on the path to get her GIA Graduate Gemologist Degree. She's also great at making fun Instagram Reels and content, decorating the showroom, gracing our ears with her lovely singing, and keeping things fun around here! Come in and see her and you'll be sure to walk out better off for knowing her.
Laura T., CAD Designer & SalesLaura has been with us just over a year, and quickly found a love for our custom department. If she's not on the showroom floor helping someone find what they're looking for, then she can be found at her computer designing someone's next favorite piece. She's very creative and has her own style, she's patient, a good listener, and we've loved seeing her grow into her own role here.

Andrew M., GIA Accredited Jewelry Professional & CAD Designer
Andrew has been "in the family" for the last 14+ years, and married Angelica in March 2012. We hired him in May 2013 to help on the sales floor, but he quickly took an interest in...everything. He's a fast learner, loves people, and loves jewelry. He enjoys unique and creative pieces. He loves helping his customer find exactly what they're looking for and helping create the memories that go along with each piece of jewelry. He immediately started classes with GIA and has already completed Jewelry, Gemstones, & Diamond Essentials. In 2015 he began learning CAD design, and now enjoys creating cool pieces for customers and for the showcase.
