The Journey Continues.

CJ Charles Jewelers first established its roots in La Jolla in 1986 as the premier luxury watch, fine jewelry and diamond destination. Vahid Moradi, president and CEO of CJ Charles, recently opened a third door on Prospect St specializing in vintage watches and estate fine jewelry. Today CJ Charles Jewelers is excited to announce its expansion to Westfield UTC, with the grand opening in June 2018.

Iconic brands such as Cartier, Panerai, IWC, Bulgari, and the CJ Charles signature Rivière collection will be showcased at the CJ Charles UTC location. A selection of certified pre-owned watches such as Patek Philippe, A. Lange & Söhne, Rolex, and Audemars Piguet, along with impressive estate jewelry including Tiffany & Co., Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels, will be offered as well. Upon stepping foot inside the spectacular salon, guests will be privy to an unforgettable experience. The store’s California Modern design is comprised of natural stone, sensuous leather and exotic hardwoods, creating an inviting ambience where avid watch collectors and jewelry enthusiasts can enjoy the latest highly coveted timepieces and fine jewelry.

Vahid Moradi shares with Giving Back Magazine, “The journey continues with our CJ Charles family, friends and ever-growing clientele in Southern California and beyond. We invite you to experience the unexpected, to discover the most extraordinary jewelry designs, finest diamond collections, and our selection of luxury timepieces. As always, the level of care and expertise that clients have come to expect will continue to exceed their expectations.”

In addition to the new UTC store, CJ Charles Jewelers’ main location is in downtown La Jolla on 1135 Prospect St. next to Panerai Boutique La Jolla, and CJ Charles Vintage.
