They started out splitting the store in half to save money and split the space with a family friend. The family friend sold wicker baskets on one half and they sold jewelry on the other half. At this time there was a big brand store called service merchandise that was going out of business and had a jewelry department. They ended up buying all there display cases and safe. They were able to open the store for just around $10K. The business grew and they eventually took over the whole space.

He had this store for around 4 years and it was a success. After 4 years he decided to move his family and the business to Sacramento Ca. They opened a new store and had that location for almost 10 years. Being in the business for over 30 years he was ready for something different. He closed the store and moved to Florida and now started Organic Diamonds.
