Julie and Emmanuel met over twenty years ago when they were both featured artists in a jewelry show at a contemporary gallery here in San Diego. A few years later they met again when Julie started working at the jewelry store where Emmanuel was already designing and fabricating pieces. They worked together side by side for over 5 years until Emmanuel went on to open a store in La Jolla. Julie stayed on where she was, creating her own line of jewelry and building up her clientele. Through the years, the two stayed in touch and collaborated on various jewelry projects and design contests. Having similar ideas, tastes and visions, Julie and Emmanuel decided to open a jewelry store and gallery that was different from all the rest. At Jewels on 5th, you are more than a client - you are our partner, a collaborator in creating a unique piece of jewelry. With over 50 years of combined jewelry experience, our store is owned and operated by Master Goldsmith Emmanuel Himmelberger and Graduate Jeweler, Metalsmith and Artist Julie Harris. We offer jewelry that is designed and fabricated all under our roof.
