About George Karkazian

In 1972, George Karkazian was cutting diamonds when he applied to watch repairing school, and one year later he opened his own watch and jewelry store while attending the Swiss Horological Institute in Beirut. Five years later he came to Fresno and opened his first store on West & Shields. Soon after, Karkazian Jewelers moved to the corner of Shaw and Willow where they established themselves as one of the valleys leaders in jewelry/watch sales and repair for over 40 years. In July 2007, Karkazian Jewelers added a second location in north Fresno at the corner of Friant and Ft. Washington. In February 2009, Karkazian Jewelers moved their Clovis location two blocks to East, right on Shaw Avenue between Willow and Peach. 

In business since 1975, Karkazian Jewelers is a family store serving the San Joaquin Valley. Our purpose is to provide quality jewelry and services to our customers in a timely manner with a pleasant buying experience. We carry loose GIA certified Diamonds. We are one of the few jewelers that is able to cut and polish your chipped diamonds.
