Hi, I’m Jeff, President and Owner of Colonial Jewelers. I’m the third generation of Hurwitz’s to own Colonial, and I’ve been a jeweler practically all my life. As a child, I always thought I wanted to someday take over the business; I learned it from the ground up from my parents, Will and Marilyn. I received a business degree from James Madison University and my Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America. I’ve been so fortunate to have my wife, Patty, and my daughter, Sarah, also working in the business alongside me. As Sarah has taken on more of my duties over the years, I am currently the Inventory Supervisor and Appraiser, in addition to mentoring the staff. I’m proud of the staff of professional sales associates and support team that we have in place here at Colonial Jewelers. My goal is to see that they all represent the values of integrity, hard work, and high standards that were taught to me by my parents.
I love diamonds and all jewelry, and I am so fortunate to have lived in the great Frederick community all my life. It’s rewarding to see customers whose grandparents shopped in our store many years ago. I’m happy to have led Colonial Jewelers’ growth over the years and to know that Sarah will carry on the legacy through at least one more generation.
