Can you speak on Brown & Co.’s beginning? Brown & Co. was founded by my father, Frank Brown, in 1974. Dad—along with the help of mom —grew Brown & Co. to what it is today: one of the largest independent, family-owned and -operated jewelry stores in the Southeast. We started off with one employee, and the first sale was of a gold spring ring clasp for $1.25. I’d say we have come a long way.

What’s made the company stand out from other jewelers over the decades? We can do it all—whether it’s diamond engagement rings, fashion jewelry, timepieces or estate jewelry; buying or trading jewelry; servicing or refurbishing anything; or custom design. We have families that have traded with us for multiple generations, which is one part of our business that I find to be so unique.

This must be an exciting milestone for you and your family. Forty-five years in business and 10 years at our Buckhead location is incredibly meaningful for us—45 years is a long time! It is a true testament to the fact that hard work, persistence, creativity and genuine relationship-building can make one’s dream come true. I like to think it will be the same way 45 years from now.

Speaking of which: What does the future hold for Brown & Co.? Brown & Co. is currently run by myself; my sister, Amy Greene; and our dad, and it is our plan to continue the legacy of Brown & Co. for many years to come. We want to continue to work hard—and have fun doing so. In short, the future is bright for Brown & Co.!
