Jerry Amerosi, Past President of Bucks and owner\founder of Gerald Peters Jewelry in the Staten Island Mall, spoke to the club this month about the growth of his business over the years and how his sons are being groomed to lead the family business into the future.

Jerry discussed how he takes great pride in offering real, authentic products. Jerry has been able to offer this to his customers because of his commitment to becoming an authorized dealer of a variety of well known and upcoming jewelry lines. Jerry explained that when you are an authorized dealer of a brand you are able to vouch for the authenticity of what you are selling.  Jerry's business philosophy is to offer good products at a variety of different price points and couple it with an excellent level of service.  What is very fundamental to his business is the product. "Price is important but you ultimately have to offer a good product."


Jerry first entered the jewelry business in 1984 operating out of Cesar's Bay Bazzar in Brooklyn. In 1992, Jerry left that location and opened up on 18th Avenue in Brooklyn under the name, Gold Mine Jewelers. Noticing that many of his customers were moving to Staten Island he decided to relocate to the Staten Island Mall and opened up there in 1996. In 2016 he moved to a new location in the Mall creating a beautiful store that offered an inviting shopping experience. This new store with a new name - Gerald Peters - allowed Jerry to bring in more high end brands such as Breitling and Mikimoto Pearls. Gerald Peters is named after his sons who are both part of the family business.

In addition to Gerald Peters, Jerry owns a Pandora store in the Staten Island and one in Ocean County, New Jersey.
