I have been a customer of Les Olsons since Bob and Pam took over the business. They always exceed my expectations. In the last few years they have repurposed some of my older jewelry. Bob, Pam and Rob always go above and beyond. The entire staff including Julie are a joy to deal with. You won’t be disappointed.

Well pleased with my ring , which was my mother’s, it was redesigned, reset, by Olsen jewelry, Holly was so much help & understanding in re-doing such a dear keepsake. Well worth trips from Apollo beach.

Les Olson Jewelers has beautiful jewelry! I recently purchased a pair of earrings for my mother. Julie who works there was so helpful. I told her what I was looking for and in what price range. She was extremely helpful with showing me different options to select from. I selected a pair of earrings and my mother loves them! I will be back! Thanks!

I have been a customer of LOJ since Les Olson! Bob, Pam and now Rob truly are artists who facilitate our dreams, desires, wants, and wishes!
Over the years I have had purchases and recreations. The staff wants you to be as happy with the outcome as if it were their own. Pam and Bob are warm, kind, and treat you as a treasured friend. Julie has been most patient and understanding with our current project. I eagerly await the completion and have a feeling it is going to be more than I imagined.
