FTJ was formally a jewelry repair and manufacturing company only dealing with wholesalers close to home as well as nation wide.

Fast forward to today, twenty something years later: Their two daughters, Bilinda and Taylor, are both invested into the family business as well. Bilinda is in the store front working closely with our retail customers and in charge of our marketing department. Taylor has her heart in the back of the house; not only is she a GIA certified gemologist but she specializes in hand drawing our custom CAD designs.

We custom design, repair family heirlooms when no one else can, and produce one of a kind pieces no matter the budget. 

Having our beginning start from wholesale allows us to know exactly how much a piece should cost.

being a family keeps us grounded so we empathize with each one of our guests that come through our door. Jewelry is so personal and we believe your experience with us should be just as special. 

With the help of the rest of our staff here we are proudly over 100 years of collective knowledge and master craftsman jewelry experience.
