When Bob Lien got his start in the jewelry business, he found himself on the outside looking in…literally.
Bob has done it all in jewelry. Now owner of Robert’s Fine Jewelry, he can look back on that time and smile. He was 14 years old and doing odd jobs for a local jeweler. One task was to clean windows and display cases. Today, he not only owns his own store in Waite Park, but he is also one of the most respected jewelers in the state.
Bob grew up in the St. Cloud area and could have taken many different paths. He was intrigued with math and numbers. “I had a passion for accounting,” he said. Instead he turned his passion for numbers into a passion of another kind as he earned high honors in school for watch making and gold-smithing in the Twin Cities. He honed that craft while at the same time learning the jewelry business and repair techniques from the best in the industry. In 1982, moving back to St. Cloud, Bob decided it was time to put up his own window.
“The small shop in downtown St. Cloud went well from the start,” he said. “We were the first jewelry store in this area to sell quality jewelry by the gram weight.” Bob remembers the lines snaking down the sidewalk from his shop to buy 18-inch gold chains for $7.
After several expansions downtown, Bob relocated his store to Crossroads Center in 1994, and then moved the store into Waite Park in 2007. “The convenient hours and wonderful sales staff have set up apart from the competition,” he said.
Bob is a Graduate Gemologist of GIA and Robert’s is recognized as the area’s Certified Gemology Appraiser and Accredited by the American Gemological Society. He is a past Board of Directors member of the Minnesota Jewelers Association and is a past president of the North Central American Gem Society Guild.
He prides himself for carrying the finest and most unusual styles of jewelry available and for having a reputation for excellent workmanship. “By buying directly from the cutters and suppliers we can bring great savings to the consumer,” he said.
“The jewelry business has been very fascinating. It’s a happy business to be in and has proved that in many ways.”
