Where Jewelry is Art
When you step through the gate of Jewelry Emporium, consider yourself a special guest. We will be happy to treat you to a cappuccino or an espresso as you explore our showroom and view the sparkling displays of jewelry and art glass. When you’re ready, we can help you find exactly what you want and need.
In our elegant showroom, you will find jewelry designed by a remarkable line-up of award winning national and international designers, such as Mark Schneider and Barbara Westwood. You’ll have opportunities to actually meet these designers, and others like them, at events that Susan and her associates host during the year (see News & Events).
The quality and variety of our jewelry is outstanding. Bridal sets, watches, diamonds, Pandora . . .you’ll discover a treasure trove of possibilities. (see Products). If you don’t find what you are looking for in our showroom, we can either use our wealth of connections to find it or we can make it! We offer custom jewelry design.
“Every day when I put my key in the lock of my store, I get excited,” says Susan Harrison, owner of Jewelry Emporium. Susan loves the jewelry business. This Colorado native began her career in 1979 as the buyer/ manager of the store, and purchased it in 1990. The store moved to its current location in April, 2003.
This vivacious and energetic businesswoman loves the creative challenges in her work. Clients call on her to help them create new, custom projects with diamonds, gems and other fine materials.
Susan is affectionately known as “Diamond Sue.” That’s because she regularly makes the trip to Antwerp, Belgium to personally buy diamonds for her base of customers. Antwerp is known as the diamond capital of the world. As a Master IJO jeweler, she has the privilege of visiting the offices and workshops of Antwerp’s world-renowned diamond cutters and choosing only the best.
In 2007, Susan and her associates were awarded the JCK award for being one of the top 50 Designer Retailers by the Design Center exhibitors at the 2007 JCK show. This is a prestigious award that is based on Jewelry Emporium’s ongoing excellence and success in marketing, displaying and selling designer jewelry. Other companies in this top 50 list included Sak’s 5th Avenue, Nordstrom and Borsheims.
