Possessing a clear vision of one’s goal is vital in materializing and manifesting that goal into a reality. As seen with many successful individuals, having an ambition must be coupled with hard work and a determination to succeed. In the case, Timothy Long, best known as Tim Da Jeweler, his success in the luxury jewel industry is evidence of his dedication to excellence as one of the most talented jewelers out of the Bay Area.
Before becoming a trendsetter in the jewel industry with numerous accomplishments under his belt, Tim Da Jeweler worked briefly in the insurance industry. However, his love for making jewelry is so deeply ingrained that he wanted to explore into designing too, put his unique style on things, and create truly exquisite masterpieces. In his words, he explains, “I want to love what I do, and jewelry design made work easy for me as I could think of so many ideas when producing.”
Although he had no traditional art background, Tim, driven by his vision and ambition, started his business virtually by selling earrings; he then branched out selling pendants, chains, and bracelets. He enjoyed putting his unique style into each piece to bring the jewelry to life. Tim has opened an appointment-only showroom to serve his customers better and provide them with a more personal experience.
Taking a closer survey of the industry, Tim saw the disparities in customer services. He adapted his sales and services to cater to everyone by working with all budget types. He specializes in a combination of selling to the mass-market by offering an array of material natural diamonds, lab-grown diamonds, lab simulated diamonds, CZ stones, and customized pieces. His designs help his clients with the ideation and conceptualization of their ideas. “Some jewelers will turn people away if their budgets are smaller, but I have developed the skills that allow me to work with all budgets,” he says.
Backed with years of experience in perfecting his craft, Tim Da Jeweler’s artistic approach to jewel design has propelled him to the industry’s forefront as an expert knowledgeable in the field. He is now a part of a new generation of few black jewelers stepping into the craft and is currently the design specialist for TSV Jewelers. He also designs jewelry for Street Knitted, some other brands and sells in the United States and international scenes.
Despite having gained recognition as a reputable jeweler, Tim Da Jeweler doesn’t plan to slow down anytime soon. In the coming years, he plans to work with well-known celebrities and continues to grow as an artistic genius focused on growth and management. He remains dedicated to providing clients with quality work, custom designs, and excellent customer service with every purchase while giving back to his community and the underprivileged.
