Fourtané Jewelers first offered its unique jewels and timepieces to residents and visitors to historic Carmel in 1950. Today, Fourtané Jewelers is one of the leading estate jewelry, vintage watch and authorized Rolex and Cartier retail stores in the country. Although the clientele now spans the globe and the store significantly expanded, still the original small, friendly, and personalized atmosphere remains unchanged.
Owner John Bonifas, who has forty seven years of jewelry experience, took over the business almost thirty years ago bringing new life to the store, as well as to Carmel's jewelry trade. Since then Mr. Bonifas has acquired one of the finest collections of authentic fine antique and estate jewelry and watches from the 1800s to present day. "The search for the finest and most beautiful jewels is thankfully never ending," says Mr. Bonifas.
