"If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life." Marc Anthony
Kim Klementis joined the jewelry trade in 1968 when he started working for Bob Miller at Millers International; it was nothing more than a job, he had no idea that it would become his passion.
Kim opened Associate Jewelers with a couple partners who he later bought out. Kim was known for his designs, integrity and quality of work.
Kim used Marc Anthony's quote for many, many years and truly loved his company and employees and the quality of work put out speaks for itself.
Kim passed away in August of 2015, the company now owned by Kim's wife Toni Klementis is ran by the same crew who worked with Kim that will honor him by continuing on the business he poured his life into and will do so with the same determination and passion that he showed us every single day.

Change is either this big scary unknown or an exciting new adventure, it just depends on how you view the world. As you may know change is coming; it started in August 2015 when we lost Kim, we knew then that the company would never be the same no matter what we did because there is no replacing a man like that.
Then May 2016 came and Dave announced he wasn't going to be purchasing the business and Kim's wife Toni took over as President and sole owner of the company. And so the changes continue...
We the employees are still here, running the shop business as usual and hope that you stop by and see some of the changes taking place.
You, our customers are the most important part and would love to hear any feedback or suggestions on where we could improve on your experience within the company.
I hope you enjoy the updated website, check back for more "bloggier" blogs that will be more work/shop related posts by myself and other employees in the near future.
Thanks for stopping by!
If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life.
Marc Anthony (and Kim Klementis)
