After one hundred and twenty three years serving the city of St. Paul, Bockstruck Jewelers closed in 2007. Recently a group of former Bockstruck employees have opened Landmark Jewelers, a fine jewelry store inspired by the Bockstruck legacy. The team at Landmark Jewelers has more than 123 years of combined jewelry experience, and looks forward to continuing traditions and the wonderful relationships we have with our customers and friends.
A gemologist, former appraiser and buyer, Sarah worked at Bockstruck's for 24 years, most of the time as store manager. Sarah staffed Landmark Jewelers with long-time Bockstruck employees. Recently asked about her decision to launch Landmark Jewelers Sarah said "I just couldn't let a great team, full of experience and commitment, break up, the two most common questions we heard from customers were; where should I go for my jewelry needs and whom can I trust?" The two best answers were, "Go where you've always gone and rely on the people you have always trusted."
During Toni’s 20 plus years in the jewelry business, she has enjoyed many long lasting relationships. By getting to know her clients personally, Toni can easily make the perfect suggestion for you. This may include a truly special and unique gift, an item to compliment a collection or even a friendly reminder that an important date is approaching. Toni will make your shopping easy by working hard to make sure you are a happy customer. With a keen eye for quality and design, Landmark is fortunate to have her assistance with buying beautiful jewelry for the store. Toni is a spry Italian. When not at the store, she can be found in her gourmet kitchen cooking for her family and friends. We would love to share a few of her wonderful recipes, but unfortunately, Toni doesn’t measure anything!

If you ask Susan what she most enjoys about the jewelry business she will tell you it is working with engagement customers. Susan's knowledge and enthusiasm for diamonds make her a wonderful person to work with.

Sue has officially retired, but we consider her a part of our team because she frequently helps us out during special events, vacations and holidays.
