There is a new jewelry store in town and the residents of Bixby Knolls have noticed. Opening its doors just last month, Milana Jewelry aims to corner the jewelry market one gemstone at a time.
Located at 4130 Atlantic Avenue in Long Beach, Milana Jewelry is the first business of jeweler and gemologist Dang Tiv. Tiv has been in the jewelry profession since 2002. When he made the decision to break out on his own, he looked to the Bixby Knolls area as an ideal starting point.
“I like the area,” said Tiv. “It’s unique and you can see that it’s growing and I wanted to do something to contribute.”
And Bixby Knolls residents agree. Since former jewelry store Star Jewelers closed its doors last June, the neighborhood was without a nearby alternative. Seizing the opportunity to fill that void, Tiv was more than happy to give local customers what they were looking for, and then some.
A full-service jewelry store, Milana Jewelry offers more than jewelry repair. From watches to rings, earrings to pendants, customers who walk in are instantly dazzled with the bling of diamonds and luster of Milana’s various stones and styles.
“It’s all new, good-quality jewelry that is very sophisticated and modern at competitive prices,” he said. “Our more popular items are the diamonds and colored stones.”
And with a variety of complimentary services, the staff offers customers anything from watch battery replacement and repair, free jewelry cleaning and inspection as well as regular sales.
“We are always having sales and are very flexible to work with the customer.”
So whether one prefers to be dripping with diamonds or be seen with a single stone, Milana Jewelry promises to give those who visit quality service that they will never forget.
