2655 Richmond Avenue, Staten Island, NY
For over 30 years and two generations, Gerald Peters has been servicing the Staten Island and Brooklyn community with the best of the jewelry industry. Truly a family owned and operated business, Gerald Peters has dedicated its mission to providing its customers with the highest quality and craftsmanship of fine jewelry. Established in 1982 in Caesar's Bay Bazaar in Brooklyn by Jerry Amerosi Sr., what was once known as Goldmine began as a single showcase of children's charms. In 1992, Goldmine expanded to a freestanding location on 18th Avenue, where Jerry added "Gerald Peters" to the name, after his two sons, Gerald and Peter. After much success as a freestanding jewelry store in Brooklyn, Gerald Peters Goldmine moved to Staten Island in 1996. After nearly three decades of immense growth and experience in the Staten Island Mall, the business enhanced Staten Island's jewelry purchasing experience by opening a new store within the mall –triple the size of its previous location. Included with the move was the introduction of over double the number of brands previously offered and a change in name, marking the evolution of Gerald Peters after so many years. Today, Gerald Peters' state-of-the-art, spacious location is home to new additional high-end brands exclusive to Gerald Peters and the largest bridal jewelry selection on Staten Island, but still stays true to the family-feel the business has always had since the original Brooklyn showcase location opened in 1982.
