Saint Cross, Inc. started in 1983 in Los Angeles, California by founders Richard An and Grace An. The name of the company wasn’t randomly chosen. In 1982, soon after emigrating from South Korea to the United States, Grace An was involved in a major automobile accident. During her rehabilitation, she found Christianity; thus, birthing the name of their business on the basis of her gratitude and appreciation for her savior in Jesus Christ.
For 3 years, Richard and Grace established their fine jewelry business located at the Jewelry District in Downtown Los Angeles. After Richard earned his certification as a diamond appraiser, he was able to establish one of the first custom jewelry businesses within the Korean community in Los Angeles. Because of his remarkable achievement, these pivotal years became the cornerstone for the success that Saint Cross was to become the future.
By 1990, Saint Cross opened its first retail store inside Koreatown's premier shopping center, Koreatown Plaza, as a provider of fine diamonds and jewelry. Because of Saint Cross's uncompromising commitment, dependable credibility, and exceptional business operation, Saint Cross was recognized to establish track record of customer satisfaction. As a result, Saint Cross became the first Korean-owned business to become an authorized dealer for the high-end timepieces in 1995. Saint Cross was able to venture out and further expand their representation of some of the world's top finest timepieces. Thus, Saint Cross became an authorized dealer for the six luxury brands in Switzerland.
Saint Cross, Inc. continues to walk the path of integrity and dependability from its grateful start through its rise on becoming a landmark business at The Koreatown Plaza.
