Our History

Pacific Jewelry & Watches owner Paul Shikhvarger turned his passion for watches and jewelry into an enjoyable career and a thriving business. He first hones his craft by apprenticing under expert European watchmakers for several years, before studying at the GIA. Prior to launching his own business in the Jewelry District of Los Angeles in 2006, he worked for an online jewelry business evaluating watches and jewelry. As his reputation grew, and his clientele expanded to include many residents of Los Angeles, Paul moved his main office to the Brentwood area, where he enjoys working in a dynamic, family-friendly community.

Great experience: I took family heirlooms to Paul having some idea of their value, he was very honest and upfront about all the pieces. Prior to selling, I had asked another jeweler the value of a watch and Paul's quote was almost double! I have already referred others!

I found my experience with Pacific Jewelry & Watches to be excellent. It's a convenient west LA location and the appraiser, Paul, was really professional. I came in with 2 watches to get updated replacement values for insurance purposes and his assessment process was thorough. The appraisal report for insurance came back in 24 hours. Overall, a no fuss and professional experience. Would use his services again.
