Rochester Findings was founded in 1955 by Garson Merimsky as the Garson Jewelry Company. As a wholesale jewelry distributor, Garson exclusively sold to jewelers in New York and Pennsylvania. His son Howard joined the business in the 1970’s and specialized in selling premium quality findings. Howard attempted to retire in 2019 but wasn’t ready, so he continued until he could find an qualified successor.
That Opportunity presented itself in 2023, when Eugene and Ashley Matteson purchased the company.
Eugene had apprenticed as a bench jeweler in Rochester for 3 years, then started his own business procuring diamonds at competitive prices, following up with sales to jewelers through industry groups such as “Jewelers Helping Jewelers.” Eugene did shipping and receiving for Rochester Findings at his location for about 2 years before he realized that purchasing a well established findings company would benefit his diamond business. With the help of Howard throughout the transition, Rochester Findings has been well established and looks forward to growth.
