Thomas Thielman’s Retirement.

It is with bittersweet emotions that we announce the retirement of Thomas Thielman, co-founder of Vintage Jewelers & Gifts. After an illustrious career spanning 48 years in the jewelry industry, Tom has decided to retire and pass the torch to his son, Brendan.

Tom founded Vintage Jewelers and Gifts in 1992, with his wife and partner Carol. Under his leadership, their business has grown to become one of the most reputable and trusted jewelry stores in the area. Tom’s wealth of jewelry knowledge, his integrity, commitment to exceptional customer service, quality products, and his ability to connect with customers on a personal level have been the driving force behind the success of the business.

Throughout his career, Tom has built lasting relationships with suppliers, colleagues and most importantly, his customers. His love for jewelry is evident in every aspect of his work, and he will be greatly missed by all who have had the pleasure of working with him.

Tom heads into retirement knowing that the family business he helped build will continue to thrive. His son, Brendan, will be taking over Vintage Jewelers and Gifts, with ongoing support from Carol. A fourth-generation jeweler, Brendan will continue the tradition that began with his great grandfather (Carol’s grandfather) back in 1924.The family legacy lives on, and we are excited to see what the future holds for Vintage Jewelers and Gifts!

Please join us in celebrating Thomas's retirement and wishing him all the best for the next chapter of his life. We’ll be having a small retirement party which will be held on March 28th, 2023, from 5-7:30 PM, and we hope to see you all there.
