After I graduated from Cornell and got my start in the jewelry business, I soon found myself in a dynamic and complex industry that demanded decades of hard work before mastery could be achieved.
Even after becoming CEO of Hyde Park Jewelers – a Denver-based jewelry and gift store – I knew there was more I could do to bring high-quality diamonds and custom engagement rings to Denver clientele. So, after 35 years of success in retail jewelry, I founded my diamond and custom jewelry store. My goal was to provide each client with a one-on-one, consultative diamond and engagement ring shopping experience but without the stress that can come with shopping at most other jewelry retailers.
I know first-hand what it’s like to feel pressured into buying a high-ticket item like a loose diamond or a customized engagement ring. Over the years, many of my clients have remarked that they decided to buy from me because I treat them as partners in their buying decision, not customers.
I believe this approach is what has made us such a glowing success. Today, I am proud to see our business becoming an integral part of Denver, and I thoroughly enjoy giving back to the community that is responsible for my success as a trusted diamond broker and engagement ring consultant.
Even after 40 years in the fine jewelry business, I still consider it an honor and a pleasure to educate our clients on the intricacies of diamonds: cut, clarity, color and GIA/GIS certification so that they can make a clear and concise decision.
By combining vast industry expertise with low operating overhead and an intimate jewelry buying experience, we are Denver’s premier provider of diamonds and ring design services. Visit us, and you’ll see why.
