Dale and Linda met while working together in the same San Diego jewelry store in 1977 after Linda retired from a career as a professional ballet dancer. They married in 1978 and they’ve been a team ever since. They moved to Carlsbad in 1985 to raise their children and pursue their dream of owning their own jewelry store.

Dale and Linda operate Gems of La Costa Jewelers with a simple philosophy. Our goal is to do business on a “win-win” basis. We want you to feel good about your experience in our store.
