Phyllis Weeks-Daniel retires after 30 years

Jessop's is losing a gem.

After nearly 30 years as our manager Phyllis Weeks-Daniel is retiring.  Known to Jessop's San Diego clients for decades as their friendly and capable consultant for all things gems and jewelry, we are sorry to see her go.  She has been an appraiser, diamond and gift advisor extraordinaire, gemstone personal shopper, jewelry restoration specialist and custom designer.

Phyllis earned the titles of Graduate Gemologist, GIA and Certified Gemologist Appraiser, AGS during the early years of her tenure.  A knowledgeable buyer of jewelry and loose gems she has traveled on buying trips for the store for years, always bringing back gorgeous quality gemstones. She forged great relationships with suppliers and clients alike. Phyllis has also been the voice behind our 'Facts and Facets' newsletter, the Jessop blogs, and many, many pages of web content. She has worked on the creation and growth of our website to support an enhanced and expanded way to virtually shop Jessop's. In every way, Phyllis has helped to make Jessop's the very best.

Phyllis expressed her feelings about her retirement saying, "I have loved getting to know so many wonderful people who have become friends in the course of our jewelry conversations. Seeing the children of many customers grow up and then come to me for their own engagement diamonds has been amazing. As a gemologist, I've had the chance to see the finest gems and to help people understand what makes those gems special - that has always been rewarding. I also marvel at the change from pre-internet Jessop's to our current website and have enjoyed creating content. This has been a fun and challenging new world for me to work in, outside of gemology.  But most of all, it has been the people. From my terrific co-workers to great clients, they have made the years fly by. It is very hard to say 'goodbye!'"

Jessop's wishes Phyllis all the best in her retirement. She will be greatly missed.
