Jewelry, Exclusive Online Retailer
In an exclusive deal with Von Dutch Watches, Apples of Gold Jewelry is
currently the only authorized online retailer of the
Von Dutch Watch. Offering the Von Dutch Watch

Most name brand watch companies, such as Rolex and Breitling, and other major
players have so far been unwilling to sell their high-end watches to online
jewelers. But now with ever increasing growth and consumer trust of the online
market, this taboo realm in the watch world has slowly begun to shift ground.
Reputable "up and coming" jewelry company, Apples of Gold Jewelry and
"rebel-culture" designer, Von Dutch, have led the way, and rightly so!
Apples of Gold Jewelry, itself an innovator in the online
jewelry industry, was one of the first major online jewelers, selling jewelry
since 1999, with products ranging from gold bracelets, gold chains and
necklaces, gemstone jewelry, wedding rings, and now high-end designer name-brand
watches such as Von Dutch,

of Gold Jewelry has been less known to the general public, keeping for now their

name further into the public spotlight with the addition of high-end and
invariably unique pieces of jewelry that you will not normally find at your
average online jewelry store.

and actually care for its loyal base of customers, while large enough to
strike groundbreaking deals with the likes of Von Dutch and the GianTTo Group,
who themselves often cater to the famous and to high-end consumers, especially
Apples of Gold, CEO, Afshin Yaghtin, states that he likes
to think of his company as a "jewelry company" first, and an "online business"
second. "We are as reputable and carry as high-end jewelry as a traditional
brick-and-mortar jewelry store. We just happen to sell online instead."
And then he adds, after a pause, "And for a lot less".
