About Matthew ‘Monty’ Montonati

My introduction to the jewelry design industry began in 2012 when I began working part-time for my now father-in-law, Michael Malicki. I began my jewelry career performing odd tasks around the office, but my curiosity and fascination with the industry blossomed, and I summarily absorbed every detail. Michael retired in 2016, but since I had come to enjoy the business so much, I took what he had taught me and continued to sell jewelry independently. I started my business with only a few dollars and have been growing exponentially ever since.

Meet our lead designer, Jake Fox

Hi, I’m Jake Fox. I began my jewelry career at 13, and was creating and selling custom made fine jewelry before I had graduated high school.

In the years since, I have had the privilege to study under several fantastic gemologists as well as with the Gemological Institute of America, travel all over the country, meet some amazing people, and even win a few awards.

After nearly two decades working with high-end independent jewelers, I grew tired of seeing people push overpriced brand names, and value dollar signs over truly making their customers happy.

In 2018, I opened my own jewelry design firm with my father, a certified gemologist with over 40 years experience. Our focus is on the customer – creating high quality, American made jewelry design that tells the story of the person wearing it.

I am thrilled to work with jewelers like MKB who offer the kind of personal one-on-one experience that we believe you deserve; and ensure that your jewelry is as unique, and beautiful as you are.
