I’m Jeffery Bolling, son of Rev. Thomas and Phyllis Bolling; my parents are doing well and married for 45 years. After leaving the U.S. Military in 1986, I started in the jewelry industry as a sales associate for Cowell and Hubbard, a Zale’s division store in Akron, Ohio. I quickly discovered that I had natural selling skills, and worked my way up to manger of a store in New York. Seeking more independence, I took a sales job on the road with a company in Los Angeles. I later did diamond remount shows for several large chain stores, before returning to full jewelry sales.
I was on the road for 23 years, learning 3D jewelry designing and working with manufacturers in India, China, and Thailand. Although very successful, I realized that I wanted to develop something for my family with growth potential. Opening Jeffery B Jewelers started to creep into my mind. Designing for other jewelers is a thing of the past; now my designs are exclusively for the Jeffery B customer. My wife Leslie has been by my side since day one and is a newly certified gemologist, for GIA. Our son Christian recently graduated from watch-making school in Quincy Illinois and he is our in-house watchmaker.
I feel as though I have never worked a day in my life because I truly love what I do and have no desire to do anything else. My goal is to satisfy our customer’s jewelry needs, and to prepare my son to be “the leading jeweler” in the Denver area for years to come. My mantra reflects my love for the jewelry industry and my family business. If you are looking for a special piece for the one you LOVE… than it has to be from Jeffery B. When it’s Love, it’s Jeffery B.
