Gem City Jewelers became a household name in the San Gabriel Valley in 1977 when Arsak Kazanci, a recent immigrant from Turkey of Armenian descent and his new bride Ani, decided to leave their home in order to start a new life in the United States. His vision was to create a place where every customer was treated like family and was welcome with open arms.
Now 35 years later, with his son Sarven Kazanci running the family business and countless weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries celebrated, Gem City Jewelers continues its legacy. Every piece of jewelry is treated like a family heirloom that can be passed on from generation to generation.
Gem City is known for its on site open workshop that shows the process of every piece in the making. For an honest and clear relationship with our customers we encourage them to watch as their pieces come to life.
