In 1954, Adam Kirckof's grandfather opened Rochester Lapidary Supply Company in Rochester, Minnesota. In the beginning, he sold professional-grade rock cutters, rough gems, and lapidary equipment. Under the ownership of Adam's father, "Diamond Don", Rochester Lapidary saw further expansion into fine jewelry - a tradition carried forward today by the 3rd generation of Kirckof jewelers.
The industry and our store have changed over time, but our attention to detail and dedication to quality remain the same. Today, we continue to provide the high level of personalized service that we have been known for for over 70 years.
