The Reno community is certainly lucky to have an incredible Nevada jeweler like Michael and Son’s in the community for 31 years and running. Opening its doors for business in 1984, Michael and Son’s owners Michael and Mary Lorenz started with a tiny, 400 square-foot sliver of a shopping mall of sorts inside Reno’s Indian Colony. By 1990, Michael sold the business to his son David and daughter-in-law Shannon, who, over the past 25 years have expanded the local jewelry store to over five times its original size at a whopping 2100 square feet with 11 employees.
As a third generation Nevadan, owner David Lorenz is passionate about not only offering outstanding products backed by excellence in customer service, but has a contagious enthusiasm for Nevada goodies. When visiting Michael and Son’s on your next trek to Reno, travelers will succumb to shoppers delight when perusing the finely crafted jewelry, art and Native American Jewelry this little nugget of retail bliss has to offer.
Shoppers will have the chance to take home a piece of one of Northern Nevada’s most expansive selection of Turquoise [the state gemstone,] have a shot at snagging some antique Paiute and Washoe handmade baskets and other locally made Native American goods, or even have a chance to score some official Nevada Wolf Pack jewelry. And that’s not even scratching the surface of their gigantic collection of high-end, custom made baubles. Get your hands on some aquamarine gems as vibrant as Big Blue, or purchase an engagement ring for a true Nevada wedding experience at one of Reno’s downtown wedding chapels.
If you’re really looking to kick it up a notch, hit the Nevada hills to lock down some of your very own Turquoise, Garnet, Crystal or Opals. Commemorate your trek and bring them into Michael and Son’s to create a Nevada souvenir that is just about as genuine as it gets and will be anything but forgettable. Regardless, be sure to add this super cool hot spot to your list the next time you’re checking out Reno!
