Diamondls & Fine Jewelry

Why does Andrew Rismann Jewelers
have such a successful jewelry store?

Why does Andrew Rismann Jewelers
do over half of their business just selling

It's simple. We sell quality. We also have the most
reasonable prices in the latest styles. We also man-
ufacture many of our own "one-of-a-kind ,' pieces.
Don't be fooled by 1/2 off sale prices and special
deals. We can sell you a half carat diamond any-
where from $900 to $3500. The bottom line is, that
we care how you spend your money and we make
a point to see that you get what you pay for.

DOes this sound like the kind of store you have
always been looking for? If so, we hope you will give
us the opportunity to prove the difference a profes-
sional jeweler can make.
