Not your typical jeweler.

I have always had a fascination for gold. I remember when I was a young boy whatever game kids were playing there had to be a gold treasure.

In 1980 on the North Fork of the Yuba River , mining partner, Sid Walker, and I hit a small Mother Lode with a Keene gold dredge. With the gold we got that summer, I learned how to make jewelry and went to Gem School.

In 1981 I sold a lucrative high pressure dissatisfying business in Santa Barbra, Ca. and moved to Placerville, Ca. where my wife and I opened a hole in the wall Jewelry Store at Midtown Mall. It took five years and all of the money we had to finally have a successful business.

In the year 2000 we opened this larger location on Ma. Street, downtown Historic Placerville Ca.
Gold mining and the jewelry business, has been a perfect combination and I am equally passionate about both.
