Jeweler John Michael Matthews Opens Shop on Bea...

Jeweler John Michael Matthews Opens Shop on Bea... - John Michael Matthews Fine Jewelry is now an island business. And to celebrate its move to its new location at 645 Beachland Boulevard, the owners threw an Oct. 28 cocktail party for dozens of guests. Located directly below Island Tile & Stone in the former Waddell Insurance space, the totally rebuilt, custom designed glass-front showroom played host to local bankers and politicians, former and current employees, family, friends, life- long customers, and many new faces. John Matthews and his wife, Carla, a local attorney, have been in business 20 years on Royal Palm Pointe in a space that John describes as having "a bit of a mom and pop feel." It was time to move. The new location's showroom's interior space has been completely rebuilt and custom designed specifically for jewelry. "We're not only relocating and expanding our lines," explained Matthews, "We're reinvesting in the community of Vero Beach." Matthews has been in the jewelry business since he worked under a European trained master jeweler in high school. After years of apprenticing and working in every phase of the business, Matthews opened his Vero Beach location, specializing in hand selecting diamonds at better price. The couple travels to Antwerp, Belgium, twice a year to find the best merchandise. "I probably see more diamonds in one trip to Antwerp than most jewelers see in an entire career," Matthews said. "We have no problem comparing our prices, our skills or our knowledge." -by Linda Clark, Insight Magazine
