In 1965, Frank & Geneva Barnhill met while working in a jewelry store in Atlanta. In 1966, they married and today they have two wonderful children and three terrific grandchildren.
In 1978, their dream came true when they opened their own jewelry business. Today, their jewelry store in Dunwoody has been in the same location since 1982 and is one of the nicest jewelry stores in the south. In 2005, Geneva was named Jeweler of the Year by the Southeastern 24K Club.
In 1996, Frank realized a strong demand for low-interest jewelry-collateral loans and opened Avalon Jewelers. Today, Frank and their son Mike have helped thousands of people in need of a short-term loan and want to use their jewelry and watches as collateral.
