Our roots began in the living room of Gloria Gimble’s Saint Paul, Minnesota home. Gloria appreciates fine jewelry and has a talent for selecting elegant pieces. She began sharing this talent with her friends by hosting parties in her home – where her friends purchased from the jewelry she had chosen. While supporting and caring for her family, Gloria gained a reputation for offering fine jewelry at exceptional prices.
As Gloria considered opening a jewelry store, her son Todd completed the G.I.A. (Gemology Institute of America) Graduate Gemologist Program in Santa Monica, California. Todd returned to Minnesota as a “rock star”! (The Institute refers to him as a Graduate Gemologist – G.G.).
Although Todd and Gloria had not anticipated entering business together when he began the gemologist program, upon his return to Minnesota, they chose to transform Gold’n Treasures into a family business. This decision united Gloria’s business experience with Todd’s academic training and they opened a jewelry store with the same warm and inviting atmosphere that Gloria’s home had provided for so many years. Gloria has been fortunate to retire from the business that Todd now guides.
