An interest in antique and vintage jewelry isn’t just about discovering a piece that has a visual aesthetic, it is about history and the story behind it. These are pieces whose worth is assessed at a deeper level than the surface glint and glitter. Fascination, emotion, and significance are factors that make the chosen object invaluable to its wearer. Katherine Carol Heinz’s has long been interested in vintage, antique, and fine jewelry. As President and Owner of Painted Rock Enterprises, she provides access to her knowledge, expertise, and discernment via her selections for purchase at her online store.
Katherine Carol Heinz’s exquisite taste can also be seen in her choice of academic institution. She spent her years of Liberal Arts study at California State University, East Bay – a university known for its award winning programs, expert instruction, and highly personalized learning environment. This university was recognized a “top–tier” institution among master’s–granting universities in the West in 2008 and 2009 by U.S. News and World Report and in 2011 the Princeton Review selected Cal State East Bay as a “Best in the West” college for 2012, the eighth consecutive year it had been acknowledged as such. Her study continues with her role as an entrepreneur of antique and vintage items. The details of the era, the materials, and the maker are all significant elements that add to the experience of her trade. For instance in the 1940’s World War II affected the types of material used in jewelry production, sterling silver was more prevalent and gold was used sparingly as fill and vermeil.
Customer service is of utmost importance to Ms. Heinz and she offers a shopping experience that her customers will find both convenient and secure. She has designed her site with the goal in mind to be user friendly and easy to browse even for those people who have limited familiarity with making purchases on the web. With its selection of charming jewelry and decorative and functional items, Painted Rock is enjoying success and is increasing its happy customer base.
