Anthony Gomez – 1970’s

Started with Intuition, Continuing with Tradition

The Gold Concept is a family-owned jewelry and design studio, providing for the jewelry needs of the central coast since 1971. Started by Anthony Gomez and continuing the tradition through his two sons, Aaron and Devin, the Gold Concept produces custom pieces designed and hand-crafted in house by Sibling Studio (that’s code for Aaron and Devin). GC also provides jewelry from many other artisans, all of whom we personally know and support.

The Gold Concept Jewelry and Design’s aim is to provide beautiful jewelry through sustainable business practices. Using recycled precious metals, ethically sourced gems, Lab-grown gems and providing education of these sustainable practices to its clientele. It is the goal of GC to create family heirlooms that do not come at a cost to future generations, but can be handed down through generations. That commitment is extended to every artist that we carry.

GC is as proud of its commitment to sustainability as it is of its jewelry. You are invited to look at, touch, and ask about the quality and sustainability of each piece – they enjoy sharing the stories behind the jewelry. They believe in educating their customers not just selling them a product. And if you’d like them to make you a custom piece that only exists in your minds eye, just ask and they’ll gladly help. All things great started simply as an idea.

For a complete list of services that they offer please browse their various product lines on the website, or give them a call. On behalf of everyone at The Gold Concept Jewelry and Design, thank you for taking the time to read this.

 

Meet the Gold Concept Family

Co-Captain      Bench Jeweler

Having been raised by the founder of The Gold Concept, I have been around jewelry my entire life. I dabbled in jewelry fabrication while I was still making custom furniture and cabinetry. Enjoying the craft so much I started by formally apprenticing under my father in 2009. In order to enhance my jewelry skills I headed to Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts. And the rest is history…well actually it turned in to my brother and I taking over the store from our father, working tons of hours, completely remodeling the store, and building a bigger shop space on site. It is truly a labor of love and I am forever grateful to my family for the ability to carry on this tradition.

Co-Captain      Jewelry Designer

Since I can remember, I’ve been drawing and painting in my formative years. I studied art and design at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. I’m continuing my lifelong journey to understand and learn the art of jewelry design.

Being the son of a jeweler pre-disposed me to appreciating the creativity and attention to detail that goes into making jewelry. There is nothing more fulfilling than starting with an idea, or a sketch, or a lump of wax and forming it into something that did not exist before. I am honored and humbled to be able to make jeweled art for a living with my brother and family.

Sales Ninja

I started making jewelry as a young girl and have never stopped. That passion turned into a career in my early 20’s. This trade has many facets and never-ending educational opportunities. Since my career began, I have undergone an apprenticeship as a jeweler, GIA’s Bench Jeweler certification program, and further education at Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts. After a few years working as a repair jeweler, I found my niche in managing the store, selling like a Ninja and making my own line of jewelry. I’ve been working at The Gold Concept since 2010 and feel blessed to work with such an amazing family.

Team Mom

I entered the jewelry sales world in 2007 and haven’t looked back. How could I leave when I am surrounded by a treasure chest of wonderful, sparkling wearable works of art. Being a part of The Gold Concept Team is like having a second family. We have great clients, a wonderful work environment and the joys of working with people I love. You will recognize me as the only one without a tattoo…yet!
