Diamonds are the Nuñez family’s best friend. Since 2005, Pete and Deborah Nuñez, along with their daughter Cynthia, have married their gem and design expertise with small business values to offer personalized, quality jewelry and repair services through Nuñez Fine Jewelers in Virginia Beach, Va.
Pete Nuñez graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology’s jewelry program, and after working for an independent jeweler in New York, he brought his talents and his small business background to Virginia Beach. Since his arrival, he has teamed up with his wife Deborah, a former lingerie designer who now specializes in another intimate purchase – fine jewelry. Their daughter, Cynthia, has worked in the family business since high school, and she is now certified by the Gemological Institute of America. “We each offer different skills to provide our clients with a great experience that keeps them coming back and referring Nuñez Fine Jewelers to their family and friends,” Deborah says. “We enjoy getting to know our clients and doing what it takes to make their purchases extra special.”
Part of making those purchases extra special is going above and beyond for their clients. “We once gift-wrapped and personally delivered a wedding set to a client at her job since she wasn’t going to get off work in time to pick it up herself,” Deborah says. This type of stellar customer service sets the Nuñez family’s business apart from the national chain jewelers in the area. “If there is a customer service issue, we can address it immediately,” Deborah says. The Nuñez family and its employees pride themselves on this prompt, personal approach to daily jewelry sales and service.
The Nuñez family doesn’t just serve its clients, however. Even in a business as specialized as jewelry, Nuñez Fine Jewelers maintains an undying commitment to supporting other local businesses and the local community. “We use local vendors as often as possible to reduce shipping and keep money in our community,” Deborah explains. “We often give a complimentary bottle of wine, bottled locally, or a sampler bag of chocolates from another local business to clients to help them celebrate their special occasion.” The customer service and indie support that characterize Nuñez Fine Jewelers make this local business shine brighter than its most pristine diamond!
