Angie is new to Monticello but has plenty of experience in Jewelry! Angie came to us from a Jeweler we did repairs for up north. Once we had the chance to bring her on board, we couldn’t wait!

Angie is a bright light in the store with her positivity and willingness to go above and beyond for our clients. She is an organizational GURU and keeps the store running smoothly.
Ben is the most responsible high school student we know! He has amazing focus when given any task. Need your jewelry cleaned? gemstones counted? Watch link removed…? Ben’s your man! Ben is also in charge of our Facebook posts, photos and website maintenance. Ben has an incredible work ethic and willingness to do any job that needs to be done. plus he’s got a heart of gold!
Jim is our incredibly talented bench jeweler. Working at Classique since he was a teenager - he was the only one who weathered the ups and downs of the economy and stayed on with the company over 30 years. He also was willing to stay on after the store was purchased by Hali. His ability to repair jewelry is nothing short of excellent. However, his creativity is the real showstopper - He is truly gifted with the ability to alter jewelry from an ‘ugly duckling” into a beautiful swan! Once you get to know him, you’ll learn that his talent pales in comparison to his kindness, integrity and loyalty.
