After coming to America at the age of nine, John Medeiros began his storied career in the jewelry district of Providence, RI at 12; working on production lines after school. In 1985, he established Tahoe Jewelry, providing the jewelry industry and prominent designers like Gucci with intricate polishing and stone setting services. Influenced by the skilled and talented artisans of the Renaissance and a vision to produce the highest quality, affordable jewelry, at night he would sketch and conceptualize ideas. The vision became reality with the launch of The John Medeiros Jewelry Collection in 2000. Today, The Collection is one of the few jewelry lines still produced from concept to completion in Rhode Island.
Our success is based on the belief that stylish, high-quality jewelry should be accessible and enjoyed by all women. With hand-carved detailing, Mr. Medeiros implements the same craftsmanship and engineering techniques used in the high end, precious metals jewelry industry. In-keeping with our artisanal roots, The Collection can be found in qualified, independent retail stores nationwide.
