Angelo Calapristi was an Italian immigrant who became a highly skilled watchmaker. He opened the family's first jeweler store in south Philadelphia on the corners of Snyder Ave. and 22nd St.
His wife Louise was his faithful partner and they built their business up over the decades until their son-in-law and their daughter took over the helm.
Edwin Breaux is a career Marine (once a Marine; ALWAYS a Marine!); serving our country for 26 years. After his retirement he learned watchmaking and the jewelry business from his father-in-law. After a few short years he moved the family business to their current location in Marlton.
His loving wife Christine grew up in the jewelry business at the side of her parents. Christine did an amazing job of juggling the responsibilities of raising six children while assisting her husband in growing their business.
Louise is a 3rd generation member of the family and has been an integral part of Family & Co. Jewelers. Louise enjoyed working with the family for 30 + years, most of that time at the jewelry bench.
Louise has retired with her husband Jim and is enjoying quality time with her 2 children & 2 grandchildren (so far).
