More About Grunwald & Kiger Fine Jewelers
Dan Grunwald has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from St. Cloud University, an accredited Art School in Minnesota. He has been an owner since the store first opened in 1991, and specializes in custom-made jewelry designs. "We do true custom work, not just adding heads to precast mountings," says Dan. "Jaimi and I both do original designs and make jewelry from scratch. That way the customer becomes part of the design process and can take pride in the one of a kind finished product." Dan explains, "We start with the drawing, make a wax model cast, and then complete the finished piece, all in the Mason City store."
Jaimi Kiger, a Mason City native, worked as a goldsmith for Golden Touch Jewelers in Mason City and as a bench jeweler in St. Cloud, Minnesota before starting with Hanson-Grunwald. Jaimi is one course shy of becoming a graduate gemologist. She specializes in Diamonds and has unique custom ideas for customers. Jaimi is also on the board of the Iowa Jewelers Association (IJA)
Both Dan and Jaimi have won numerous design awards and are active with many community events.
