Gurinsky’s Fine Jewelry is owned by Rhonda and Charlie Gurinsky who have been in San Antonio, TX for over 30 years. It’s a long way from milking cows to owning and operating a jewelry store, but Charlie Gurinsky has successfully bridged the gap. With his father operating a successful dairy, it was no surprise that Charlie studied agriculture and ran the collage dairy while attending SW State University (Texas State). Charlie decided that milking cows twice a day, 7 days a week wasn’t for him and he searched for greener pastures. Within 5 years, he had learned enough and saved enough money to open his first jewelry store in Central Park Mall. After 15 years, there were 10 Gurinsky’s Jewelry stores around San Antonio and Austin.
Along the way, he met and married his wife, Rhonda who was his manager of his North Star Mall store and who came with a jewelry pedigree of her own. Rhonda grew up working in her aunts jewelry business in Lousiana and has a special passion for history and estate jewelry.
Together they are raising 4 children. After Sept 11, 2001 and the near death experience of one of their children, they decided to devote more time to their family. They chose not to renew leases and cut back their lifestyle so that they could regroup and spend time with family.
