Our Diamond Anniversary
Just like a diamond takes time to reach its full potential, so does the jewelry store that displays it. At Rogers Jewelry, we’ve been specializing in the finest quality diamonds and jewelry since 1937.
We’re proud to celebrate more than 75 years in business. After all this time, we’ve learned exactly what customers want – better brands, better service and better selection, including the area’s largest collection of engagement and wedding.. rings.
A diamond isn’t made overnight. Neither is a relationship you can trust.
In 1937 a young jewelry salesman, Harry Marks and his partner, Dr. Robert Moon, a practicing optometrist, founded Rogers Jewelry Company in Modesto, California. With vision, foresight and dedication the founders built their company on the principles of providing quality jewelry, friendly service and credit while maintaining the highest standards of integrity. The company has enjoyed solid growth throughout Central California and Nevada and now has stores located in: Modesto, Sacramento, Roseville, Folsom, Elk Grove, Fresno, Visalia, Bakersfield and Reno.
Today, Mr. Robert Marks, grandson of the founder, is President of the company. Service is important to Robert, and he has also served as President of the California Jewelers Association, President of the Leading Jewelers Guild and on the Jewelers of America “Smart Business” education task force. Robert is also a past Chairman of the Modesto area Youth for Christ. He currently serves as Treasurer for three organizations: Advancing Vibrant Communities, the California Jewelers Association and the Leading Jewelers Guild. He is also a member of the Modesto Rotary Club.
Bart Marks, also a grandson of the founder, is the Vice President of Rogers of California and the CEO of Rogers of Nevada. Bart has enjoyed a long and varied career in the jewelry industry, holding the positions of Vice President of Marketing and Vice president of Brand Development for the global diamond brand Hearts On Fire, then working as Executive Vice President for the San Francisco landmark Shreve and Co
Our company is also proud to support many charitable organizations including: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, The Salvation Army, The Gallo Center for the Arts, Youth for Christ, Community Hospice, Rotary International, Lions International, Modesto Union Gospel Mission, Bethany Christian Services, The Criminal Justice League and Big Valley Good Samaritan.
We have seen the dynamics of the marketplace change over the course of our 70-plus years in business. We have seen the shift from downtown shopping districts to suburban shopping centers to giant regional-covered malls, and to the current trend of “Lifestyle Centers.” We have responded to these shifts as well, moving our stores from downtown locations to regional malls and now to freestanding Superstores, located adjacent to other “Lifestyle Center” retailers.
