About Us

About-Us Diane and Colleen

Christensen & Rafferty Fine Jewelry is a rare success story: two long-time friends operating a successful partnership in a fine jewelry establishment. We share common beliefs and values on how our business should be run and how it should grow, however, our styles and personalities are as individual as we are. This allows us to attract a more diverse clientele than if we operated individually. Instead of being detrimental, our diversity has been an extremely important part of our success.

Our client base includes men shopping for their wives or girlfriends; women shopping for themselves and their loved-ones and, perhaps most surprisingly, successful young men and women beginning to acquire a collection meant to last a lifetime. Our clients have a strong appreciation for unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that allows them to express their own personal style.

In order to help our clients keep abreast of the latest in fashion-forward design, we host special events showcasing the most exciting artisans. For our “girl’s night out” we share food, cocktails and great conversation with a variety of guests where we address questions about the latest styles and trends in the jewelry industry.

For our gentlemen clients we host “men’s shopping night”, which includes some of the best martinis in town and where we encourage the men to plan ahead for upcoming anniversaries, birthdays or holidays. We remind them that while the jewelry is virtually free, the martinis start at about $5,000.00!

Christensen and Rafferty Fine Jewelry is both a strong member of the San Mateo business community as well as an award winning corporate citizen. We support numerous philanthropic organizations including the Women’s Health Center, Mills-Peninsula Hospital Foundation, Samaritan House and Community Gatepath.

Unmatched customer service, unique and beautiful jewelry presented in exquisite and comfortable surroundings, makes Christensen and Rafferty Fine Jewelry the most distinctive place to shop for the discriminating buyer.
