Our Story / About Us

One might argue (and I'd have to agree) our story starts in 1983 when James Floyd opened The Gold Mine, a fine jewelry pawn shop on Detroit's east side near Downtown. His store would serve as a pillar to the community for over three decades and birth our founder Trish's passion for fine jewelry. Through her time working at her grandfather's store she learned the ins & outs of the trade (although in her youth she was more interested in the wearing all the pretty diamond and not their chemical structure) .


Being the third generation in her family to embark down a career in the jewelry industry Trish decided she wanted to impact the jewelry community in a unique way, different from the retail stores her family took up. Thus, Your Personal Jeweler was created. A unique spin on the personal shopper experience. Taking all her knowledge from working in the jewelry field for over a decade and partnering with wholesalers, manufacturers, and liquidators to bring retail customers unmatched service at unbeatable prices.
