Hello. I’m Patty, and I am the Vice President of Colonial Jewelers. I started my career as a Psychiatric Social Worker, and then joined the management team at Colonial Jewelers full time in 1980 as assistant to Will Hurwitz, then President of the company. I continued to work part time at Colonial while engaged in my most important career, raising my three children, Sarah, Allison and Ben. I’m so happy that our oldest daughter, Sarah, has joined the business as fourth generation jeweler and is passionate about running Colonial Jewelers; being part of a family business has always been very important to me. Allison is an accomplished pastry chef and Ben recently received Master’s degrees in Education and History. In recent years, I have become very involved in volunteer activities; my passions are Breast Cancer (being a survivor), Mental Health, and hunger in the developing world. I love working at Colonial Jewelers because it is so rewarding to help someone purchase such a personal gift of love. My favorites are engagement rings and jewelry that is purchased as a special symbol of a moment in life. I love learning to know a customer and hearing the stories that tell why the purchase is being made. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to be a part of so many happy occasions.
