San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
Despite the U.S. embargo on Burma, which has resulted in a huge decline in the number of rubies available, Union Street Goldsmith customers needn’t worry as they still have a nice collection of them.
With a hardness level of “nine” on a scale of one to 10, rubies, along with sapphires, are the most durable colored stones, making them a great option for everyday wear. With six graduates of the Gemological Institute of America, Union Street Goldsmith prides themselves on their fine colored stone collection. They also do custom jewelry and are happy to get a selection of loose rubies for customers to choose from.
Union Street Goldsmith is located at 1909 Union St. in San Francisco. They also sell diamond rings and engagement rings. Store hours are 11 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 4:45 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call 415-776-8048, or visit their website at http://www.unionstreetgoldsmith.com.
About the company:
Glenda Queen, with a background in arts and crafts, entered the jewelry business in 1964. After 11 years making jewelry at McLeans in Sausalito, she and her present partner Terry Brumbaugh, opened Union Street Goldsmith. Glenda chose a neighborhood she hoped would be a comfortable setting for her craftsmen as well as her clients and it worked.
Terry Brumbaugh, raised in the jewelry business, later became a gemologist. After an extensive period of travel, he joined with Glenda to head up the Union Street Goldsmith sales staff. Terry has a rare gift for his memory of client's collections, enabling him to design new pieces to fit his clients' special tastes and their collections. An excellent sense of style and fashion endows Terry with the ability to give valuable guidance to his clients in their jewelry selection, helping each one to create an overall special look within their collection.
