Bet You Didn’t Know This About Executive Jewelers
As I sit and get to know the owners, families and staff at our unique shops it always amazes me the things I find out. Here’s a prime example. Did you know that Garo Anserlian, owner of Executive Jewelers, was asked by NASA to design a watch that keeps Martian time? Yes, it’s called the Mars watch and was designed to keep proper time up there on Mars. This is one of those things that doesn’t come up in day-to-day “jewelry” conversation.
Executive Jewelers has been in business almost 30 years, opening in 1984. It is a family affair and on any given day you can expect to find Garo, his beautiful and kind wife Maral, son David, and their adorable dog Mickey ready to help you with all of your jewelry needs. Garo is a certified GIA (gemologist) and specialist in color stones, gem identification and diamond grading.
A major specialty here is custom design and redesign using your existing jewels. E. J. has an advanced computer program that allows you to see what your finished piece will look like at no extra charge. What a great service for the upcoming wedding season! They also pride themselves on fixing watches, jewelry, and clocks, many times while you wait. Did you know they will inspect and clean your jewelry for no charge?
Son David has designed some amazing pieces. I will be posting some pics of them on the Montrose Shopping Park Facebook page so you can see the quality I am talking about. He also is an expert at detail work like re-engraving. If you have necklaces that need to be restrung, including knotted pearls, Executive Jewelers is here to help.
In addition to new jewels and vintage jewels, E. J. has the largest selection of authentic American Indian jewelry in the area. We’re talking a wall of turquoise and silver. This is a family you can trust when it comes to your precious possessions. You will find them right on the corner of Honolulu and Ocean View, next to Faye’s. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
Now I’m off to find Dale’s great grandmother’s giant amethyst from the late 1800s and get some ideas.
