In October 1984, Brad Lawrence graduated from the GIA Jewelry Arts and Gemology program. Upon returning to his hometown of Bloomington, Indiana, Brad borrowed $5,000 and used it to rent two showcases and a small store front; Gold Casters was born.
Beginning with Brad and two additional employees, the early days were a far cry from what Gold Casters has become today. In the beginning, the skeleton crew manufactured custom rings, preformed appraisal work and offered a small selection of 14K gold rings and chains. Then the business took off.
Having outgrown their original space, the team packed up shop and moved to a new, bigger building in downtown Bloomington. In February 1986, Brad built today’s Gold Casters on the corner of 2nd and Washington St. They brought in more showcases and invested in better equipment for the manufacturing shop. Custom work and repairs soared and became the foundation of the business.
Through the years, Brad continued to expand the business and increase the staff fellow GIA graduate Paul Brown. June Fisher became a staff member in 2001 and continues our mission of customer service excellence. Jane Jackson brought 25 years experience and joined Mr. Brown in our custom design shop in 2000. In 2010, Brad's eldest son, Christian, joined the business and became a member of the management team.
Gold Casters has gone through multiple expansions. Adding a second floor, dramatically increasing showroom space, and securing an AGS accredited gem lab are to name a few. It was always the goal of Brad Lawrence to create for Bloomington a world class diamond center. With focus, resolve, and the undying support of a staff committed to superior customer service, that mission continues today and everyday at Gold Casters.
