A Little About Us


 Sierra Gem Company is a family-owned and operated jewelry store with two locations, one in Downtown Oroville, the second branch in Paradise, CA. We opened our doors in November of 1987, in historic downtown Oroville. We have experienced two flood evacuations and an arson fire in our Oroville location, so it’s safe to say that we love Oroville and are here to stay. We are especially proud of our Oroville store remodel since the arson that happened in 2010.

 Our second location opened in March of 2008, in Paradise, in the James Square shopping center. In October of 2014, we bought and moved to our permanent location at 148 Pearson Road. We are really proud of our business location history, as our building in Oroville was originally a saloon back in the Gold Rush Era and our Paradise location was originally a beautiful, but simple community church. Both locations have interesting pasts and we see successful futures as well.

 Andy opened our original store with his wife Nikki coming on board after our three sons Jacob, Nathan and Micheal were a little older. Our three sons and their families all have been involved in making Sierra Gem Company a true family business, with Jacob running our paradise location with his wife Tanessa Smith, Nathan managing his watch repair studio in Las Vegas, and Micheal currently working our jewelry CAD program. All three attended a nationally rated Jewelry and Horology Tech program in Paris, Texas. Our staff is highly experienced at both repairing jewelry as well as watches and at helping customers select the right gem or craft a custom piece that they or their loved ones will treasure for years to come.
