Gabe & Danny Arik
MEET THE TEAM
In 1973 a young Isa Arik, son of a farmer, knew that there was more to life than farming. He had an eye for design and the finer things in life. At a young age, Isa saw the beauty and could easily define quality in all goods, but his passion lead him to sourcing and designing of fine jewelry. He quickly developed a reputation for providing the very finest quality handcrafted jewelry, with the upmost detail. He was determined to make the lives of everyone around him better, so in 1993, without any government assistance, he left his native Turkey, packed up his wife and four small children, and immigrated to the United States to live the American Dream. His drive and determination landed them in Los Angeles, where he opened a modest manufacturing facility in the Los Angeles Jewelry Mart. Isa believed in choosing only the highest quality diamonds, gemstones, and gold, to craft his jewelry, and to this day has not sacrificed quality in any way.
The vision and determination of our father, Isa, is what launched Happy Jewelers. Now, over 40 years later, my brother Danny and I represent the second generation of our family business. Although much has changed, our basic philosophy has not, and we continue the family tradition of providing the same superb quality and service as in the past. Over the years we have opened multiple locations in California. Through our expansions we are still the same - same family, same values, same quality, and same level of care. We hand pick each diamond and source gemstones and precious metals from quality suppliers, because we demand the best, allowing us to offer unsurpassed quality at wholesale pricing, direct from our factory to you. Our solid foundation in the manufacturing, wholesale and retail jewelry industry nationwide allows us to provide our customers with the most innovative designs that are as unique as they are.
Dedicated to setting and maintaining the highest standards in business ethics, professionalism, knowledge and customer satisfaction, Happy Jewelers is as unique as its custom-crafted pieces. Our father began building our reputation back in 1973 and over 40 years later, we continue to make sure that every piece of jewelry we sell is second to none. That’s a promise, 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

Favorite thing about being a jeweler:
I love people and designing jewelry for them. Life is a journey and jewelry helps to commemorate those special moments in someones life. Whether it’s an engagement, birth, wedding, anniversary, graduation, or just because, jewelry is a symbol of love and admiration and that’s what I love, helping people create a symbolic memory.
- Even though Danny is younger than me, I am still better looking
- My wife, Susie, is my rock. We worked along side each other for many years prior to starting a family. We have two girls and two boys. Like their mother, now my two girls are old enough to share and be a part of the business in helping people create lasting memories.
