The Story Of Calla Gold, Owner and Santa Barbara Jeweler
"I'm here to help you find the great pleasure, satisfaction, and delight with your jewelry."
Yes, my last name really is Gold. Could that be more perfect? Was I destined to become a jeweler, or what!? I’ve lived in the Santa Barbara area nearly my entire life. I attended nearby schools and worked at local businesses. Accordingly, I’ve developed a close bond with the community in Santa Barbara, Montecito, Carpinteria, and Goleta.
In 1983, I created Calla Gold Jewelry. I’ve been visiting my clients in their homes and where they work ever since. I specialize in helping people select the right pieces of jewelry. The piece you choose should complement your physical appearance, unique personality and lifestyle. I take great pleasure in helping you choose the jewelry that you’ve always desired, whether it’s a one-of-a-kind ring featuring diamonds and precious gemstones, elegant Italian designer chains, and bracelets or wedding rings. I’ll help you find it or I’ll custom make your dream for you.
While my passion is designing custom and unique pieces of jewelry, I get special satisfaction in solving problems with those neglected and troublesome pieces of jewelry that you may have relegated to the darkest depths of your jewelry box. In fact, on more than one occasion, I’ve been called the “problem-solving jeweler.” --- Calla
