Our History

Designer Jewels was founded in 1968 with the goal to provide the highest quality product and service to our customer -- we continue to strive to maintain the goal.

"Designing Jewels" began over 100 years ago with my late grandfather, Aaron Sachs, in Russia, continued by my late father, Joseph L. Sandler, myself and continues today with my son, Mark and my grandson, Joshua.
