The History of Rock N Gold Creations
Simon Mattar, owner and founder of Rock N Gold Creations (RGC) was taught craftmanship by his grandfather, Louie Mattar and his father, Joseph Mattar. Both men were known for their gifted hand craftmanship and creative tallent. On Oct 5th, 1992, Simon established Rock N Gold Creations in San Diego. His vision was focused in the designer jewelry trade and included the establishment of a true artisan jewelry manufacturing shoppe.
By 1996, RGC had become well-known for its superior manufacturing quality and efficiency, and expanded its horizons with a public showroom and a new state-of-the-art workshop. In 2001, RGC moved to Clairemont Mesa Blvd. to better serve the San Diego community.
In 2016 Rock N Gold Creations made another transition of growth and change by adopting a private, by appointment only, business model and relocating the Kearny Mesa retail location. This change allows Simon the freedom to focus on his passion for jewelry design while continuing to service the loyal clients he has had the pleasure to accrue over the years and to actively pursue new ones. Rock N Gold Creations is now able to offer more flexibility, more focused client appointments and better pricing.
From 2005 to present, Rock N Gold Creations has won several awards for Simon’s jewelry designs, “Voted Best Designer Jewelry in San Diego” four years in a row and has been featured on the many San Diego news stations.
