Here’s What EVT had to say about Nelson Estate Jewelers:
Best New Business:
“A month after Nelson Estate Jewelers opened last year, a woman came into the showroom with a 19th century ring that was made for her grandmother. It was missing a sapphire that the big chain stores couldn’t or didn’t want to bother replacing. Thanks to David Nelson’s experience and connections in the industry, he knew a cutter who could duplicate the old fashioned artistry of the cut and match the other stones. That’s how you make a customer for life and become the best new business in Mesa. Nelson and his wife, Aubrey, who live in Dobson Ranch, sold a couple of rental properties and a cache of collectibles to give the business a running start. Mesa customers are embracing their ethical, transparent pricing and unique collection of estate and designer pieces.”
Best Jewelry Store:
“When David Nelson got his first job at Zales as a 15-year old in Wisconsin, he didn’t know that this was going to become his life’s work. After attending Arizona State University, he worked for big names like Jared and Kay and prominent independent East Valley Jewelers. He came to realize that the business model – high everyday prices with periodic sales events – was broken. Nelson Estate Jewelers, which he opened last year with his wife Aubrey, is turning that model upside-down with transparent, everyday pricing and by making one happy customer at a time. The showroom displays a dazzling collection of late 19th and early 20th century vintage estate pieces and modern designs and will work with you to custom design a special ring or pendant. The Nelsons will make sure you get the best price for your old gold, silver, and coins.”
