The jewelry trade has been in the Binder family for 3 generations. Richard apprenticed at the bench with his father, Sidney, in 1968. Over the years, the primary business was to remodel, repair, and manufacture jewelry for retail jewelry chains and private stores. (Kay Jewelers, Macy's, Bailey Banks & Biddle, Sears) This has given Richard the experience of creating an efficient and cost effective goldsmith shop. Golden Anvil Jewelers still serves as the goldsmith shop for a number of retail jewelry shops in addition to serving the retail community.
As times have evolved, so has Richard's vision of the jewelry business. He is excited to open our newest retail location in Jupiter, Florida. Richard is a highly skilled bench jeweler who now spends most of his time consulting with clients to create a beautiful piece of jewelry and a memorable experience.
Jonathan took an interesting path that eventually led to him joining his father in the jewelry industry in 2009. He spent his previous 8 years in the high tech electronics industry selling microchips to major consumer electronics, medical, and industrial equipment manufacturers like Microsoft, Phillips, Siemens, Boeing, and Honeywell. As a territory sales manager for a large corporation, Jonathan developed important skills such as relationship management, value sales process, inventory management, people management, and manufacturing flow. These skills have allowed Jonathan to transition to a smaller community oriented business and immediately impact the jewelry manufacturing workflow, sales process, and inventory management in a positive way.
Jonathan continues to improve the overall efficiency of the jewelry shop to give customers the best price possible. He continues to expand his knowledge and proficiency in precious metals and gemology, and looks forward to helping customers create a beautiful family heirloom. Jonathan graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florida, and with a minor in Technical Sales. In his free time, Jonathan enjoys kiteboarding, reading, and traveling.
