Di Ane

Di Ane Rubasky

Di Ane is really the face of Continental. She has been with us for 26 years and is a consummate shopper both here and in her personal life. Many rely on her extensive knowledge and good judgment to pick out the perfect gift!


Katie Hannig

You've probably seen Katie's familiar face around North Wilmington. She keeps tabs on everyone in the community from her days at Hannig's Exxon at Foulk and Silverside. Having been with us for almost 10 years as our administrative assistant, she has developed a keen eye for quality and value. She loves working with clients too!


Sandie Weiler

Here’s Sallie, our Fashion Jewelry Specialist. She has fabulous taste in clothes and accessories. Her background in art and design are evident in the choices we make regarding new lines and designers.


Shawn Snyder

Shawn has been with us for six years, and has been one of the first faces you see when you come in to the store. She's officially retired, but continues to fill in when we need her!



A newcomer to our store, she has known our family for years. She brings her love of community and partnerships to our outreach and is learning all we do to take care of our clients.



A familiar face to many of our clients, Neil worked with us about 15 years ago, when he retired to explore his love of art. He's back as an emerging artist and a creative force in our merchandising.


Kathy Chuppe

Kathy officially retired, but continues to oversee our quality control for our repairs and custom work. She's in a few days a week to keep things running smoothly! As a client of ours for over 10 years, she's had much experience wearing and loving jewelry.


Shelli Mcgrory

This mystery girl is our Certified Gemologist Appraiser of the American Gem Society. She works diligently behind the scenes in our appraisal department and is in charge of our vintage and preowned jewelry department, Miriam's Attic.



Another expert behind the scenes is our jeweler, Giorgi. He's the heart and soul of our "state of the art" repairs and custom designs, and quite a perfectionist!


Elleni Strantzalis

Elleni came to us from the non-profit sector and takes the lead with all our social media. She keeps the books too!
