So, here we go:
Julian Oosterloo took over his father's store in 2007, to continue the pursuit of the family business. Julian has worked hard to build an online empire ever since! That is, next to the existing store of course. Julian just soon realized the high demand of beautiful vintage jewelry, of which he had so much to offer. Even though customers came from far and wide to the shop in picturesque Monnickendam, the step towards a webshop was only logical. Still Julian appreciates the daily customer contact and is happy to work with passion everyday. Julian is responsible for the overall management and for the procurement of diamonds and luxury jewelry. He is married to Kim, father of Mikkie and Jip and is sometimes (well let's be honest, very occasionally) to be found at the golf course.
Joke is Julian's mother and has been a long-time support at the jewellery shop. She has many years of experience in this field, and by the love of the trade, entrusted with jewelry, valuations or repairs by her customers. In addition to her work in the shop, Joke is responsible for the overall administration and planning. In her spare time she can often be found on her friend's estate in the Frisian countryside, or shopping with her daughter and who she shares the love for a culinary lunch with.
Mandy is our in-house valuer. With her expertise and skills she is responsible for the anticipated valuation and overal assessment all of our jewellery. Mandy takes our high value into account and makes sure of the premium quality-level we want to maintain. Another part of her job is managing the orders, since she is aware of all the ins and outs regarding our collection. Mandy truly is indispensable! In addition, she is a great lover of diamonds (and jewellery in general obviously). She is also mother of a little son and crazy about fashion.
With Wim we got ourselves the perfect golden combination. Wim is our goldsmith, but besides repairing, renovating and manufacturing jewellery - Wim has also mastered the art of sales. He loves to share his passion with our costumers, which makes it possible for you to get clarity about the possibilities of renovating piece of jewellery, restoring your own jewellery or the duration and/or cost of it all. Besides his two day presence in our shop Wim is working in his own studio as technical draftsman of new jewelry.
