Welcome to Julz!
Just like the products and services we provide, I wanted to surround myself with a team that shares the same passion and commitment to their profession as I do to Julz. I started my career in downtown Canton in 1976, and eleven years later purchased the House of Stones in New Philadelphia and spent the next 28 years building on a tradition that dates back over 100 years. It’s great to be back in downtown Canton as the premier jewelry store and be a part of the tremendous revitalization.
Julz offers everything you would want from a world class jewelry store. Our diamonds are the finest crafted diamonds in the world, personally hand selected in Antwerp, Belgium. In addition to a unique collection of gemstones and fine jewelry, several of our designs have won national awards. Our watch gallery represents fine Swiss time pieces as well as investment grade collectible fine watches. We have a full service on-site shop with a full time jeweler utilizing the latest advanced technology capable of anything from cleaning and polishing your jewelry, restoring your precious family heirlooms, expertly repairing your jewelry, to creating unique one of a kind pieces of jewelry. Our bench jeweler expertly sets diamonds into our engagement rings – no one comes close to his craftsmanship!
We stand behind every piece of jewelry our clients purchase. We always enjoy visiting with you and catching up – our customers become family. We welcome you to bring your jewelry in for a complimentary clean and check. We also offer an upgrade program for every Julz diamond purchased – whenever you would like to upgrade to a larger diamond, the full amount that you paid for your original diamond will be applied to the larger diamond purchased!
As a member of the American Gem Society, you are working with knowledgeable and credentialed experts in gems and jewelry who adhere to the highest ethical and professional standards, a recognition only 5% of the jewelers, designers, and appraisers nationwide have achieved. I am a certified gemologist appraiser which is the highest level of professional recognition. I have served as Past President of the Ohio Jewelers Association which represents over 650 jewelers in Ohio. Alan Rodriguez was one of 16 Board Members of Jewelers Of America, our national organization which represents over 10,000 jewelers.
Julz by Alan Rodriguez was recently selected as one of 22 jewelers nationwide that have earned the “America’s Best Jewelers 2010″ designation through “their high level of operational excellence, demonstrating they could maintain excellence in disciplines across the full range of jewelry retaining operations, from human resources to marketing and financial performance.” Julz by Alan Rodriguez was honored with a 2010 Business Excellence Award of Greater Canton from the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce. Award selections were made on the basis of business and employment growth, expansion of operations and efficiencies, consistent outstanding customer service, investments in capital improvements, innovation and expansion of product lines, responsiveness to business and industry challenges and adversity and consistent community involvement. Julz was named as “Best Place to Buy Bling” in the September 2010 issue of About Magazine, featuring our manager, Karen on the cover. In the December 2007 issue of INSTORE magazine, a trade magazine for the jewelry industry, Julz was highlighted in a five page layout as one of America’s Coolest Stores and most unique jewelers.
