Then a good friend called me in 2002 and suggested that I move my family to Tampa, Florida, citing the great weather, beautiful beaches and friendly people as a few of the many reasons to move here. After some discussion and research, the Beaird family re-located to beautiful Tampa in March of 2004.
I immediately put out feelers for work and soon found myself as the "Jeweler on Premises" at Anthony Louis Jewelers in Carrollwood. I spent about a year and a half there, designing, creating, restoring and repairing all things shiny, when the owner announced his retirement from the jewelry business. I seized the opportunity to purchase the store's fixtures, and, in early 2006, JB Fine Jewelry was born. Since then, JB Fine Jewelry has been at the same location in Citrus Park and has served thousands of customers in the Tampa Bay Area. Then in early 2020, everything in the world changed. My wife of 25 years passed away from cancer and the world plunged into a pandemic. JB Fine Jewelry, like the rest of the small businesses in the country, closed it's doors. It took 6 very long months to recover from my loss and I reopened in November of 2020. Then, in 2021,on a beautiful August evening, things took a wonderful turn. I met my new partner and love, Michelle Emery, a brilliant art teacher with a strong background in sales and marketing. She has joined my team and together we are excited to bring our unique talents to continue to serve our clients in the Tampa Bay area. Our expertise is in custom jewelry design and creation, repair and restoration, precious gemstone and diamond setting, but we specialize in personal, honest service.
Come in... I guarantee your complete elation.
Thanks for your business!!
