Meet Jourdan Block of Bijoux by JB in Cherry Creek

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jourdan Block.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was first introduced to the jewelry industry when I started working with a gentleman who wanted to open an independent jewelry store to cater to private clients. As an assistant, I quickly learned the ins and outs of the jewelry business but was eager to learn more.

I decided to educate myself in New York City at the Gemological Institute of America, where I eventually became a graduate gemologist. After that, I moved to Los Angeles where I was mentored by a few industry professionals, and soon became the manager of a store in Beverly Hills. I worked there for nearly five years before I decided to move back home and open my own company, Bijoux by JB. I have now been successfully in business for four years.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think it has been a very interesting and inspiring road. Each of my stepping stones has lead me to learn from my past experiences and paved the way for my future ones. It has been a series of events that all lead me to where I am now. It has been fun and exciting and I look forward what the future holds.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Bijoux by JB – what should we know?
