Established in 1946 In 1946, Henry and Anna Spitz realized the culmination of years of sacrifice and determination with the opening of the first Spitz Jewelers in Oakland. 1986 brought the expansion of the store to Downtown Walnut Creek and, once again, the word "family" became synonymous not only with who we are, but our relationship with our customers and community.
On any given day, if you walk into the Gumuchian office in Manhattan, you will see several women buzzing around, all with one goal in mind: to bring our clients the most exquisite, timeless and perfectly executed jewelry they have ever seen or worn. Our founder and visionary, Anita Gumuchian and her daughters Myriam and Patricia carry on a family legacy in the jewelry industry that dates back over 100 years. Together, the Gumuchian women combine the excellence of traditional European craftsmanship with fashion-forward designs. From this vision our “Designed by Women for Women” mantra emerged, setting out to embody the confidence and beauty of all women. The Gumuchian trio spends their days developing new designs with innovation and an enthusiasm that radiates throughout the office and onto the jewelers’ benches. Each design is brought to life by master jewelers in Gumuchian’s Manhattan atelier, never using anything below platinum or 18k yellow, white and pink gold. This office is where the team of women comes together as one, treating each design as atiny sculpture, ensuring each piece is built to wear with comfort while lasting a lifetime. This is what it means to be “Designed by Women for Women”.
