BUSINESS PROFILE: Golden Key Jewelers

SAN DIEGO -- With same-gender marriage legal again in California, many gay and lesbian couples who plan to tie the knot are scrambling to find businesses that provide wedding services and products and are LGBT-friendly.

The ring is a very important part of any wedding, a piece of jewelry that symbolizes the bond a couple has with each other, and so employees of Golden Key Jewelers are committed to providing high quality, respectful service to all of its customers.

Golden Key is so invested in serving its gay and lesbian customers that it is offering a free wedding band to one lucky San Diego couple who plan to walk down the aisle.

Serving San Diego for more than 23 years, Golden Key Jewelers sells the highest quality of diamond engagement rings, watches, necklaces and other fine jewelry, while also providing a jewelry repair service, and a watch repair and battery service. Golden Key Jewelers also buys jewelry for cash.

Eddy Akel, president of Golden Key Jewelers and a third-generation jeweler, says he has had a love and passion for jewelry since before his grandfather and uncle helped him start the business.

"I saw my grandpa bring smiles to his customers and loved being part of people’s biggest moments in their lives like weddings," Akel said. "I've been in the business since I was a little boy and couldn't see myself in any other business."

Akel says that this love and passion for the business shows in the quality of jewelry and customer service that is provided to all customers.

"We cater to everybody, with no sales pressure in relaxed atmosphere," Akel said. "We do in house work unlike other jewelry stores, we’re family-owned and operated, and we’re passionate about what we do."

While Golden Key Jewelers carries a wide range of jewelry, the store's specialty is custom jewelry without the high price tag that typically comes with it.

"You’ll find everything you need in our quality selection of fine jewelry, regardless of your budget and style," Akel said. "We treat the customer the way we ourselves would want to be treated. Golden Key Jewelers follows this formula with one objective in mind: Build lifelong customer relationships."

Golden Key Jewelers is located at 7061 Clairemont Mesa Drive, Suite 203 in Clairemont. The store is open Monday-Friday 10 am to 6 pm; and Saturday 10 am to 5 pm.
