Lee Krombholz "Visionary"

Meet Our StaffLee Krombholz, the third generation owner of Krombholz Jewelers, got his start here during his junior year of high school, which was more than 33 years ago. Known as the store’s "Visionary" Lee puts his heart and soul into creating unique pieces of jewelry that are "Just Like You."

When Lee isn't in the store crafting and designing, he claims that his hobbies are running and being a "computer geek." What you probably don’t know about Lee is how cutting edge he is and how he’s always up to date on the newest indie rock bands. This being said, his favorite band is The XX.

Previously, Lee preferred a symmetric and more structured style of jewelry but recently his designs have been more eclectic and ornate in detail.

He can do it all!

His favorite movie is "Apocalypse Now" which is intense, to say the least. Marc is a music lover and has been a musician for almost his entire life. His favorite album currently is Jenny and Johnny's "I'm Having Fun Now."

When it comes to Krombholz Jewelers, Marc is a much-needed rock in the jewelry repair and creation world.
