Jacob Ripa, Jr.
The year was 1949. Harry Truman lived in the White House. Jacob along with his brother Al had $500 dollars they saved to open a jewelry store. From that somewhat meager beginning, the Ripa name has become synonymous with workmanship and service. “The most important lesson is take care of your clients and they will be your best source of advertising.” 13 Presidents later our clients are still our best form of advertising.
Jacob Ripa, III
I grew up in my family’s Jewelry business. I knew from the time I was 14 this was the path I wanted to follow. After 35 years in the Jewelry industry, I want to impart my passion for Jewelry by offering a Private Client experience to everyone, which raises customer service to a higher level.
I learned the jewelry business from my father, working in his first store not only as a sales person, but “at the bench.”
After attending Wilkes and Bloomsburg Universities for Business Administration, I continued my education with G.I.A. , Stewart’s International School for Jewelers and D.C.A., as well as certification from various branded jewelry and watch companies.
From our exquisite collection of Fine Jewelry to a family heirloom created especially for you by our craftsman, Ripa’s will become your Jeweler for all those moments you cherish. I look forward to serving all your jewelry needs.
Anthony is Ripa Jewelers 3rd Generation Jeweler. Anthony Graduated from Stewart’s International School for Jewelers in 2018-2019. His course of studies included all facets of jewelry repair along with Diamond and stone setting. After he completed his studies, Anthony or as many of our customers have come to know him, “Tony” practices his art and has instituted the use of Laser technology at Ripa Jewelers. This allows Ring Sizing on delicate stones, such as Emeralds, Opals and Pearls without removing the fragile gemstones. We also use it for chain repair, rebuilding channels, re-tipping and rebuilding prongs and stone setting. Anthony has allowed Ripa’s to have the best jewelry repair and restoration department in the area.
