For Jannie Bean, part of the magic of Jannie Bean Design is to present the extraordinary beauty of gemstones incorporated into breathtaking designs. Experience this magic for yourself at 152 2nd Street in Highlands.
Some things are meant to be, and some people are lucky enough to find their passion early in life, and Jannie Bean of Jannie Bean Designs at 152 2nd Street in Highlands is proof of that.
During her freshman year at college, Jannie accepted a waxwork apprenticeship in jewelry design. The rest is history. She eventually bought the Minnesota business where she apprenticed and never looked back.
Fast forward to 2016, when her husband, Tom, arranged a visit with her former college roommate who lived in the Highlands. During this visit here, they fell in love with the city and discovered a business for sale that was a perfect fit for them. That business was Drake’s Diamond Gallery and again the rest is history.
Jannie and Tom bought the business and quickly renamed it with their own vision. While diamonds are always their calling card and a girl’s best friend, Jannie quickly infused the business with her creative brand and love of all gemstones.
Here you will also find pieces incorporating colored stones – aquamarine, pink tourmaline, amethyst, opals, sapphires, citrine, tanzanite and pearls.
The gallery is truly a place where everyone can find what they are looking for, and there is something for all budgets and tastes. Consider your classic sapphire, perhaps the most beloved in a classic ring setting surrounded by diamonds, but available here not only in this form, but also in this form, but also in a modest ring with smaller stones and a coin. unique modern and daring.
Jannie Bean Designs is a full service gallery and can repair, appraise or restore any of your parts. They will also be happy to work with you to design the perfect new room or to reinvent a room that you have that is just too special to part with, but not quite to your liking.
Stop by 152 South 2nd Street today or call them at (828) 526-5858.
