Our story begins when Andrew's father, affectionately known as Papa, came to America from Poland with his young bride after having served on the Polish Division of the Royal Air Force in World War II. Using the GI Bill, he went to school to learn watch making, and in 1949, opened his first jewelry store in New York. Over time, Papa's single store grew and expanded into New Jersey, where Papa moved with his wife, Margaret, and their four children.
Andrew, the eldest son, grew up in the business, helping stock displays and clean the cases from a young age. As he grew older, he took on more responsibilities, including small repairs and changing of watch batteries, helping to refining his talents. After 26 years of running the business, Papa handed over the keys into the skillful and trustworthy hands of his son that he spent time developing. Andrew, along with his wife, Beth, began to raise their own three children (Kristen, Scott and Kyle) in a simliar fashion in which he had been raised.
In the early 2000's, Andrew and Beth decided to close the successful New Jersey location in order to move their family across the country to sunny Arizona. Upon first arriving in Anthem, Andrew opened a small office, set up by appointment only for jewelry sales and services, but within a year they grew into the full service jewelry store you can visit today in the Safeway Plaza.
Scott, soon after graduating from Montclair State University in New Jersey, realized his passion was to follow in his father and grandfather's footsteps, and in 2009, joined his parents in the present storefront that has been in Anthem, Arizona since 2005. In 2019, Scott and his wife Jessi took ownership of the store and now run it full time with the help of their wonderful staff.
