Meet Richard Yaffin.....
His grandfather was Solomon Yaffin who worked in Russia as one of the Tsar's famous goldsmiths. His father was David Yaffin, who began his jewelry career in Boston in 1920, not creating jewelry, but buying and reselling pre-owned diamonds and gems.
Richard was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida and joined his father's business in the early 1970's in their downtown St. Pete jewelry store. After 30 years of business, Richard sold the business in 1999 so he could retire to the mountains and chose Asheville. In 2006, he returned to business and opened Estate Jewelry Ltd. in Biltmore Village, which featured pre-owned jewelry from local estates and private individuals (almost) exclusively. Now approaching ten years in Biltmore Village, he's become the "Go-to" person for those wishing to sell their fine pre-owned diamonds and finer jewelry.
Whether you are buying, selling, or just browsing, come meet Richard and his staff. The shop is lovely, the inventory is amazing and the prices are surprisingly reasonable. You'll enjoy the fun, casual and friendly atmosphere.
He speaks, "I love my life and enjoy every day, doing what I do and trying to be the best I can." Regarding his purchasing of estate jewelry,"Every day is like a treasure hunt...
I never know what might come through the door."
