Jewelers first opened
in San Francisco
in 1969 and did
business in Larkspur
Landing for 34
years. The shop was relocated to Strawberry Village Shopping Center
this May. Norman is a GIA Graduate Gemologist and a Certified
Gemologist with the American Gem Society. They were joined by son-in-law and jeweler Henry Weber in 1986.
What is your competitive edge?
Norman is a GIA Graduate Gemologist and Certified Gemologist with
the American Gem Society and must pass annual recertification exams.
There are only 74 AGS jewelers in California and just two in Marin — this
accreditation is the ultimate endorsement of our knowledge and ethics.
Your thoughts regarding working with a spouse, family or partner?
We have always worked together creating and selling jewelry. Son-in-law Henry Weber learned jewelry making from his father, we love
working together. It’s definitely a family affair. We create a family-friendly store; it’s fun when the kids come in — we like to show them
stones, minerals and fossils.
What makes you excel at what you do?
We are highly skilled, educated and passionate about gemstones
and jewelry. Our displays are unique and we enjoy the educational
component of the business — it’s fascinating. We are a family of
experience in all things jewelry.
What makes your work worthwhile?
We love the repeat customers. We enjoy the opportunity to create
memorable pieces of jewelry and are honored that our jewelry will be
passed down the family line.
