Ramsey's Diamond Jewelers has officially taken its next huge step with a brand new location in the New Orleans suburb of Metairie, La. The new building at 701 Veterans Blvd. is 8,400-square-feet, and will soon be the sole Ramsey’s store.

CEO Robert Ramsey Jr. issued a prepared statement regarding the current state of the third-generation owned fine jewelry store: “When my father opened his little jewelry store 60 years ago, I doubt he ever dreamed it would grow to become Louisiana’s largest diamond showroom, but my sister Lori and I like to think that somewhere he’s watching and smiling in approval. After 60 years in business, it was time to invest in our customers and community with our diamond superstore.”

The former retail location on 1901 Manhattan Blvd. in Harvey, La., will be closing in a month. The newest Ramsey's store offers shopping through open showcases and private consultations.
