    Frank Ancona: Mr. Ancona has been a mainstay of the San Francisco landscape for the past 40 years. He was the former director of jewelry for Gump’s of San Francisco where he honed his skills as a designer and purveyor of fine jewelry. Colored stones are Frank’s passion and expertise. He selects each stone based on its quality and cutting style to inspire each of his designs. His expert craftsmen hand build each piece, where the front is as beautiful as the back. One can feel the quality and love that he puts into the design and creation of each piece. To own a piece by Ancona is to understand Ancona.
