Awesome Jewelry. The name says it all. Jeffrey Thomas, master jeweler and custom jewelry designer, has been creating exquisite jewelry in the Tampa Bay area for nearly 20 years. When Panache Vue asked him why he chose this business, Jeffrey, a third generation jeweler, said he believes it is the business that chose him. At Awesome Jewelry, Jeffrey believes in staying true to what he was taught by those before him: that it is really about the people. He takes time to get to know his clients so he can design a piece specifically to suit the individual. Jeffrey will create a unique piece that will be cherished in a family for many generations. Heirlooms are created at Awesome Jewelry. When asked what sets Awesome Jewelry apart from the competition, Jeffrey said it is the personal service with special attention to the details. There are four jewelers on staff and each jeweler specializes in a different area. “There is nothing we cannot do and do right.”
Top of the line name brands are also available at Awesome Jewelry. The newest addition is the Scott Kay sterling silver and cobalt wedding rings for men. Awesome Jewelry is very proud to offer this line as there never seems to be enough choices for men in the jewelry industry. Other lines available are Galatea carved pearls (with award winning designs), Skagen watches, and Nancy B sterling, as well as Debbie Brooks purses.
The precious metals market is constantly changing, especially in today’s economy. When asked about his goals for Awesome Jewelry, Jeffrey stated that flexibility is the only option. “We set shorter goals so that we can stay relevant in our industry. Being able to change on the fly is our biggest asset. Our main focus is on being the best we can be every day.” Aside from designing masterpieces for his clients, Jeffrey’s other passion is contributing to the Shriner’s Hospital for Children. He says helping the Shriner’s is what keeps him grounded. In his spare time, Jeffery enjoys live music, art, Tampa Bay Lightning hockey games and having dinner with friends.
Awesome Jewelry is located at 6305 South Dale Mabry, Tampa.
