Passion for her Profession
We were fortunate to have Alina join the Good Fortune team in 2013. She first fell in love with the jewelry profession while working full time for Ross-Simons jewelry store in Chestnut Hill, MA. She has a solid foundation in the fine jewelry industry and a passion for gemology as represented by her impressive educational pursuits. On a daily basis, Alina performs appraisal work on pre-owned jewelry, including diamonds, colored gemstones, gold, platinum, and sterling silver as well as antique and vintage pieces. Alina also assists with the store’s take-in process and repair department by establishing the value of jewelry. She enjoys working with the full range of special orders, valuations and custom work that cross her path daily.
Alina truly loves to engage Good Fortune’s shoppers in conversation to better understand their needs and sees the great value in developing long term relationships with her customers. “My goal is not just to make the sale but to educate our customers”, says Alina, “and to help them discover the jewelry they will love and appreciate for years…and maybe one day pass down to their children and grandchildren.” Alina’s deep commitment to the quality of her work and to meeting the needs of all customers ensures repeat business. She considers herself to be a self-starter and is excited to take on a variety of roles within the store. Alina feels enthusiastic about working in Good Fortune’s team environment, where great ideas can be exchanged every day. And we are pleased and delighted to have her as a strong member of the GFJ Team!
