On Monday, February 12th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for their weekly networking luncheon to hear a classification talk from Jan Krantz, owner of J&L Jewelry. 

Jan grew up in Long Beach area, went to all local school and graduated from Long Beach City College. She is married to Mike and they have two children. Their daughter Lauren gave her
her one and only grandchild, Gavin, who is 13. Their son Josh has worked in the business 6 years and is the one who designed the new fantastic showroom. 

Jan's hobbies are oil painting & photography. Her interest in jewelry started while working at a Cal Store warehouse after graduation from Long Beach City College. Jan worked there for 19 years. She then worked at Noda Jewelry for Art Noda, who was a member of Execs. After 6 years or so she started her own jewelry business in Long Beach - J&L Jewelery in 1991.

Her store is a full jewelry store and their claim to fame is she provides the cheapest battery replacement. Haha. They do repairs on jewelry, watches, clocks, in store or sends them out. Their slogan that is equally famous is "Where women get into trouble and men get out of it". Many members agreed that it's true. 

Some of the services J&L Jewelry provides are redesigns of jewelry, stringing of beads, estate jewelry on consignment, appraisals for insurance, free gift wrap and they buy gold.

As a diamond and engagement ring expert Jan recommends an inspection of diamond rings every year on the person's anniversary. Jan loves to help young/men design the special ring for their engagement on any budget (which she can help them figure out as well). Any customer who wants a custom designed ring, or other jewelry she loves to help.

Customers can enjoy a free lunch on Friday and the candy dishes are filled daily. Come by anytime to browse the cases or place a special order. Her knowledgable staff is there to help.
