Ron Samuelson, CEO of Samuelson’s Diamonds, the premier downtown diamond destination in Baltimore, was numbered among the ‘Top 40 under 40’ in this Month’s Baltimore Magazine:
Ron Samuelson, 35
When Ron Samuelson took over the 72-year-old family pawn business in the mid-1990s, his entrepreneurial spirit led him to explore new opportunities for the operation. In 1997, after studying the jewelry business, he launched the website www.samuelsonsdiamonds.com to drum up interest in the store.
The site brings diamond buyers and sellers to the downtown location from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, and has been a major driver of sales traffic—especially from young men looking for engagement rings, Samuelson says. Now he’s a developer, too: As part of the Westside renaissance, the Samuelson family—which includes his father and brother-in-law, also in the jewelry business—is redeveloping the 400 block of W. Baltimore Street in partnership with David S. Brown and A&R developers. Samuelson says he is proud that he has been able to maintain the business his grandfather started, and at the same time move it in a new direction.
“I love diamonds,” he says. “I love selling jewelry, and I’ve seen how the Internet drives everything that we do here.”
Samuelson’s Diamonds continues its commitment to being a leader in the field of local online retail.
