With 35 years of experience in the jewelry industry, Roberto has worked in all roles of jewelry sales, repair, design, and fabrication.

He looks forward to the challenges of each new day and takes pride in the opportunity to work with his wife and son where they and the rest of the Travis team create a legacy of excellence and beauty with every client they have the chance to work with.
