We're Now Open!
July 29th, 2015
We're so excited to announce that we've finally opened the doors of the new Gerald Peters! Our new location on the upper level Macy's wing of the Staten Island Mall is unlike any other store Staten Island has ever seen. Closing the doors of Gerald Peters Goldmine and opening up the new Gerald Peters will allow us to better serve you and provide you only the best in the jewelry industry in a stunning location to match. We are now triple the size of our previous location, offer double the amount of merchandise we did before, and are the still the same family who has been serving your jewelry needs since we opened our first location in 1982!
Proprietor and owner, Jerry Amerosi, opened Goldmine in 1982 as a single showcase of children's charms in Brooklyn's Caesar's Bay Bazaar. Then, in 1992, Goldmine made its first evolution into a freestanding store. Always having wanted a family business, Jerry added his sons' names, Gerald and Peter, to the business and it became Gerald Peters Goldmine. In 1996, Gerald Peters Goldmine had grown more than the Amerosi family could have hoped for in such a short time, so it was opened in its last location in the Staten Island Mall and opened our services to so many of its loyal customers today. After over 30 years in this business, what started as a single showcase evolved into something the family only dreamed of in 1982.
In 2014 it became time to evolve again -into the amazing store it is today, Gerald Peters.
The decision to change Gerald Peters Goldmine to simply Gerald Peters with the location change stems from the immense growth the business has experienced over the years. "I appreciate and am thankful for my customers every day. For 33 years, they have guided me. They wanted gold, so I offered them gold. Then they wanted diamonds, so we introduced diamonds. Because of our customers we are no longer just a "goldmine." We try to be everything they want in a jewelry store, so we couldn't have got to where we are today without them. This new store and the rebirth of Gerald Peters is a testament to their loyalty and support," said Jerry.
Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality and craftsmanship of fine jewelry, and to listen to your needs to provide everything you've ever wanted from a jewelry store. We hope we have successfully done that throughout the years. As you've helped us surpass our expectations, we hope (and are so confident that!) this new endeavor will surpass your expectations of us.
This new store, we promise, is unlike anything you have ever experienced in a jewelry store. When you walk into Gerald Peters, you are not simply buying a product, but you are gaining a whole experience.
The new spacious location is home to new additional high-end brands exclusive to Gerald Peters on Staten Island but will stay true to the family-feel the business always had since the original Brooklyn location opened in 1982. The new brands offered in the new Gerald Peters include Mikimoto Pearls, Le Vian, Charles Garnier, Gabriel & Co., A. Jaffe, Kirk Kara, Oris, and Baume & Mercier. Additionally, to accommodate the bridal component of the business which has doubled over the last few years, the new store has a private consulting room for customers to discuss and examine important jewelry pieces they are interested in purchasing - such as engagement rings and wedding bands- in a relaxing and private environment. Gerald Peters now contains the largest number of brands with the largest bridal selection on Staten Island. Included in the store are three major bridal boutiques — Gerald Peters Bridal, and the top designers in the jewelry industry, Tacori and Hearts on Fire.
