The Next Step

For those of you who know Mary and I either as jewelry clients or personal friends, you already know that we closed down Dolgin's Diamond Center in early 2009. We were sad to say goodbye to our clients, colleagues and friends we had made over the past 20 years. All of the engagement rings, pairs of diamond earrings and repair work kept us in touch with many clients that become friends.


During our time off from retail, we have been able to get healthier, visit friends in other cities and even spend some time in our garden. We were truly humbled by numerous people who continued to contact us for their jewelry needs. Now with our three boys out of school and settled in their respective jobs, we think it’s a good time to open the doors to our new project: Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler.

I’ll explain what we plan to do over the next couple of weeks in separate posts. Our sole focus will be working with clients one-on-one to take care of their jewelry needs – new diamonds, repairs, appraisals, insurance replacements and, of course, regular clean and checks.
