Chris is 2nd generation at East Tennessee Diamond Co. In 1979, Chris had the desire to join the family business. He attended Stewart’s International School for Jewelers in Florida where he learned to work on the bench. In 1982, a second location was opened and Chris managed it. In 1989, both locations were merged into one larger location and Chris took on a larger management role.
Chris currently serves as the President and CEO of East Tennessee Diamond Co. He manages our day to day operations and paperwork while still working one on one with customers. Chris resides in Morristown. He has three children: Ericka (who has joined the family business), Stephanie (who is a nurse practitioner) and Shaffer (who is still in high school). Chris’s hobbies include attending all of his son’s sporting events, playing with his dog Tanner, spending time with his family, and camping with his fiance. The favorite part of his job is the lifelong friendships he has made with customers.
