In 1970, Joe Murawski founded Joden Jewelers. Since then, the family-owned company, which now includes Joe's son, Jay, has grown and expanded tenfold. Developing a mail order and wholesale division called World Resources, the company sells to and trades with jewelers and dealers throughout the United States and Europe, as well as creating their own, distinct and exquisite pieces. Essentially, the store is like a museum showcasing antique, estate and modern jewelry.
Joe and his staff are extremely knowledgable of rare and expensive gems. The friendly and dedicated service they provide is also a testament to the company's success, which most recently has included winning two prestigious national jewelry awards.
Joden's own master jeweler, Steve Becker, along with Joe, designed and created three pieces of jewelry that were the recipients of the two national awards. The first recognition is the 2019 JCK (Jewelers Circular Keystone) Jewelers Choice Awards. JCK Magazine has been the jewelry industry authority for more than 140 years. Each original design piece had to contain all-natural stones. Two pieces of Joden World Resources’ jewelry won peer-selected First Place Awards in the "Best Ring Design Over $10,000" category, as well as the "Best Necklace Design Over $10,000."
The other recognition came from the 2018 AGTA (American Gem Trade Association) Spectrum Awards, held in Tucson, Arizona. The AGTA Spectrum Awards are considered to be the most respected creative competition in the colored gemstone and pearl industry. The Joden team took away the Business/Day Wear Platinum Innovation for a pair of platinum, diamond and onyx earrings.
That being said, this award-winning jeweler is always open to the public. So, whether you are a jeweler, a seasoned connoisseur or simply a person with an eye for beautiful things, Joden invites you to enjoy its collection as much as the team has enjoyed assembling it.
The store will celebrate its milestone 50th year in business in 2020, but the biggest reward for the company is making sure its customers are provided with the best service in the region.
