Madison Knight, Owner of Van Horne

Madison Knight Jr. - Owner

Training- G.I.A. As a Graduate Gemologist, I have been a part of Van Horne Jewelers since I was old enough not to be underfoot, which adds up to over 40 years. My father, Madison Knight Sr., and I are co-owners of the store. In addition to the extensive G.I.A. training received, I’ve basically been a part of every operation of the store. From being a goldsmith, to traveling to buy diamonds, I’ve done it all. I enjoy the challenges of the retail business and especially like having a part in some of the happiest moments in our customers’ lives. Most recently, I’ve designed a custom jewelry database, Guild Jeweler, and have implemented it at my store and in 50 other stores around the country. It is through this comprehensive software suite that we are able to effectively manage our many customers and the complex aspects of owning/managing a premier jewelry store.

If you know me you know that I truly love jewelry! This makes my career choice a perfect fit. Having the experience I do, which includes traveling all over the U.S. to various trade-shows, has allowed me to better help our customers in making jewelry choices that are both fashionable and timeless. Of course, I love dealing with the public and enjoy spending my days helping customers find that perfect piece, a wearable memory that can be passed down to future generations.

I have a long history in watch and clock repairing, and love my job. My father owned and operated a watch and clock repair business for 50 years. At the age of 6, my curiosity about clocks began. The next 9 years I helped clean watches for my dad, and at the age of 15 started working full time for my dad repairing watches. In 1994 with help from the Jewish Federation, my family and I immigrated to the United States from the former Soviet Union. After looking for employment for a short time, I gained employment from Hopman Jewelers by showing Patrick Hopman a clock that I built. In the last 22 years, I have become fluent in English. I am happy to join Van Horne's staff and I will put my 46 years of experience to good use. I desire to meet customers needs in all ways possible.

Although I've been at Van Horne Jewelers for two years I started in the jewelry business 10 years ago where I helped manage a small family owned store. I have a GIA Certification in precious metals and assist in buying for the store. I look forward to listening to your needs and helping you in any way I can.
