Christina Gandia Gambale and Jennifer Gandia of Greenwich St. Jewelers 

As children born to parents who founded the original Greenwich St. Jewelers back in 1976, the co-owners have used their lifelong passion for adornment to lead and evolve the beloved family brand. Together, they have made “G.St” a prominent destination for visionary jewelry designers and discerning clients looking to invest in fresh, exciting designs with a distinctive point of view. Since they began their shared leadership 14 years ago, Greenwich St. Jewelers has experienced exponential growth including the opening of a new location in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood.

Paul Schneider and Lauren Eulau of Twist 

Together the two craft persons took an unconventional route to the jewelry industry beginning in Eugene Oregon in the mid 1970s, where their first business was a co-op of artists selling their own work. The business evolved over the decades to become a nationally recognized market for designer jewelry representing over 100 jewelers with stores in Portland, Oregon, and Seattle as well as a robust web business at Twist was the 2020 recipient of the GEM Award for Retail Excellence.

Harvey and Maddy Rovinsky of Bernie Robbins Jewelers 

Bernie Robbins was established in 1962 by Bernie and Lorraine Rosenburg. Then an appliance store, it was in 1966 that Harvey Rovinsky joined his future parents-in-law at the store. Harvey married Maddy and together they helped steward the company through a series of incarnations. In 1992 they transformed Bernie Robbins Jewelers, now with five locations in southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey. Harvey and Maddy’s leadership has ensured Bernie Robbins provides unparalleled expertise and an exceptional customer shopping experience in a warm, comfortable atmosphere where it’s not uncommon to see Maddy and Harvey’s granddaughters. After all, it is a family business.
