The son of Herbert and Rose Kaufmann, both Holocaust survivors, George was born and proudly raised in Chevy Chase, Maryland. George has over 40 years in the jewelry business, dating back to working for his father at the original Kaufmann Jewelers in his teenage years in the 1960's. George began to goldsmith in his 20's and soon went into a partnership to create what was then Kaufmann Naranjo Jewelers. After 30+ years with jewelery stores in the District of Columbia, and with 3 children and 3 grandchildren, George decided it was time to get out of the city and soon ventured into a new business partnership with childhood friend, Robert Rosin. Together the two started Robert Bernard Jewelers in Potomac, Maryland and had 10+ years of success. Today, George is proud to be back into the family business running Kaufmann Jewelers with his son, Corey. George lives in Potomac with his wife, Deanna, and their great piernese rescue dog, Hank.
Corey was born and raised in Potomac, Maryland where he attended Beverly Farms Elementary School, Cabin John Middle School, and Winston Churchill High School. Corey studied at the Salisbury University where he graduated with a major in Communications and a minor in Marketing Management. After graduating, Corey returned home to begin his career in the jewelry industry. Corey began working at Robert Bernard Jewelers during the store's final years of business learning to goldsmith from his father, Geroge. While opening their new business, Corey continued his education in gems and diamonds with the Gemology Institute of America (GIA) to ultimately receive the most prestigious degree in the jewelry trade when he became a graduate gemologist in 2018. Corey lives in Potomac with his wife (who is also his Churchill highschool sweetheart!) Maddie, their _ and their dog Moo.
