Jacob Ripa, Jr.

Founder


The year was 1949.  Harry Truman lived in the White House.  Jacob along with his brother Al had $500 dollars they saved to open a jewelry store.  From that somewhat meager beginning, the Ripa name has become synonymous with workmanship and service. "The most important lesson is take care of your clients and they will be your best source of advertising."  13 Presidents later our clients are still our best form of advertising.

I grew up in my family’s Jewelry business. I knew from the time I was 14 this was the path I wanted to follow.  After 35 years in the Jewelry industry, I want to impart my passion for Jewelry by offering a Private Client experience to everyone, which raises customer service to a higher level.   

  

I learned the jewelry business from my father, working in his first store not only as a sales person, but “at the bench.”

After attending Wilkes and Bloomsburg Universities for Business Administration, I continued my education with G.I.A. , Stewart's International School for Jewelers and D.C.A., as well as certification from various branded jewelry and watch companies.  


 From our exquisite collection of Fine Jewelry to a family heirloom created  especially for you by our craftsman,  Ripa's will become your Jeweler for all those moments you cherish.   I look forward to serving all your jewelry needs.
