About Joseph Jewelry
Joseph Boukhalil, a master artisan, has 30 years experience in the jewelry business. Influenced and encouraged by an older cousin, Joseph was introduced to and mentored by a master goldsmith- jeweler. Joseph continued his training in the industry by working for a leading corporation in Indianapolis. For the next 5 years, he furthered his career in working for a prominent family-owned jewelry company.
In 1993, Joseph's brother, Danny, commenced his jewelry career. Joseph and Danny began to design and create fine jewelry for the eventual opening of their jewelry store. The desired location was found in the heart of Old Bellevue on Main Street.
In 1996, Joseph's Jewelry was established. Joseph continues to design using intellectual and intuitive concepts. Simplicity and elegance with quality craftsmanship are the hallmarks of Joseph's Jewelry.
Danny Boukhalil, Joseph's younger brother, began his career in the jewelry industry in 1993 as a wax carver and jewelry designer. Though primarily a design expert, as co owner of Joseph Jewelry, Danny undertakes many roles. He will be the friendly face behind the counter to whom you'll convey your vision. He will be the one to cast your piece and communicate with dealers to procure the materials. He will also clean, solder, and polish the metal. Danny has only one goal in mind from the beginning of the day to the end: ensure the customers are happy. He will do whatever is needed of him to realize that goal.
