About Us


“Let Me Introduce Myself” has been done in many ways. Boris Karloff used the phrase in Count Dracula, and I have heard it sung by Mick Jagger.

Everyday, millions of people introduce themselves to each other in many different languages and customs. In the past, people introduced themselves face to face.

Renaissance Jewelers began in 1976 in the “Renaissance Fair” adjacent to the University of Florida located in Gainesville.

It is now 2008 and Renaissance Jewelers is the oldest independent jewelry store in Gainesville. We were voted as the BEST jewelry store by a readers poll in the Gainesville Sun.

I am Robby, the owner and operator of Renaissance Jewelers. I have seen one desk and one showcase grow into an exciting multifaceted jewelry business. When I have the time, my favorite occupation is to create. It is a wonderful feeling to see your great ideas come to fruition.

Renaissance Jewelers is a full service jewelry store providing appraisals, repairs, custom design orders, and estate liquidation.

If you live in Gainesville, voted the Number 1 City in the Country and the home of the Florida Gators, please come by and introduce yourself.
