Marco Island is the location of their second store. The husband-and-wife team founded Golden Gate Jewelers 34 years ago in Fort Lauderdale, but have had a house on Marco for the last eight years.
Mother and daughter, Annelie and Avital, are now year-round Marco Island residents and will operate this location full time. Father and son, Amir and Ari, commute during the week to run their Golden Gate Jewelers location on the east coast. Together, the family has built a stellar reputation, and they are proud to offer the vast experience they each bring to the customer. People know them by their name and their business card; clientele from all over the country and abroad will wait until they get to Florida to see them.
Avital, a psychology and marketing student at FGCU, has marketing skills and a creative flair; Ari, agraduate GIA gemologist, is very particular in his designs and likes to educate his customers; and the family patriarch, Amir, knows everything and anything there is to know about any watch.
The goal is that their customers always know what they are buying and feel comfortable with their purchase. They believe any jeweler-client relationship has to begin with trust.
Striving to set themselves apart in their field of expertise, they offer a great selection of fine time pieces, a large diamond selection, custom design, appraisals and remounts. Any high-end watch a person is looking for they can bring in, and any high-end watch bought, new or pre-owned, comes with a one-year warranty. They offer in-house watch service and a quick turnaround on repairs, a welcome change from the average two-week wait.
With on-site 3D CAD modeling software, they also can bring your dream to life, and they promise that if they don’t have it, their store on the east coast will. Whether you’re looking for a gift under $50 or a 25-carat diamond tennis necklace, their only limit is your budget.
Golden Gate Jewelers hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 AM-5 PM.
