Meet The Staff
Gail E. Kowalski
Designer, Gold/Platinum smith
Gail may greet you or you may see her at her studio "bench" creating her beautiful designs. She loves to help customers try on pieces to discover the best colors and styles for them, and is always ready to fit a piece, or create a piece just for you! To read about her career, click here.
David is a GIA trained Gemologist and Appraiser. Appraisals include two professional documents, one for you and one for your insurance company. We recommend calling ahead before bringing items to be appraised so David can be present when they are checked in. Oh yes, David is also Gail's husband!
Eric spends most of his time in the design studio adjacent to the shop showrooms as Gail's right-hand bench assistant. Together they take jewelry design from inspiration, gem selection, metal and design particulars, preparation of gem crowns for setting, metal-torching, and eventually polishing, cleaning, and careful inspection. Occasionally you will see Eric in the showrooms ringing up a sale, or explaining the particulars of a gemstone or a repair to a customer.
