To understand Herzog Jewelers today, it’s important to take a look at Herzog Jewelers from the beginning.

Let’s go back to 1922, when phones had been around for less than 50 years and flappers were bobbing their hair. In that year, our founder, Elmer T. Herzog, opened up a small jewelry store at 806 Madison Avenue in Covington, Kentucky. While working long hours serving his customers (something we can all relate to even today), he earned a reputation as a solid community member and trustworthy jeweler. And to think—he did all of this without a smart phone, call waiting or a laptop!

Fast-forward to 1980, when cell phones were the size of infants and hair was even bigger. It was in this year that Elmer retired and his son-in-law, Joseph Koester, Jr., took over.  – Herzog Jewelers dot com

Like most urban stories, demographics change and so do locations for services to follow their market.

Serious protests happening to save de slang in Amsterdam my friend. I wrote the Amsterdam city council as an american on behalf of de slang and I received a reply. The attack on democracy, the arts and progressive expression begins with dismantling centers of ethnic, gay, gender and conscious exchange. We the people stand now to protect de slang as a cultural, historical icon but also as one of the last remaining places of freedom and genuine creativity that is free for All people to share.

“The Unknown” Battle against mediocrity begins…

I will keep you up to date as things unfold Frank.
Kindest regards,
