What started out as an after school job has become a lifelong career and passion. I started my journey in the jewelry industry working at deLuna Jewelers in Davis, CA. My mentors Richard and Kyoko Luna thought me all the different aspects of the business by giving me the opportunity to excel as a jeweler, appraiser, and manager of their business. I spent 15 years at deLuna and I have developed lifelong relationships with my clients who I'm also proud to call my friends. I was also deeply involved with the Davis community serving on different boards like Davis Downtown Business Association, Davis Chamber of Commerce, Blue and White Foundation and Rotaract Club.

After deLuna Jewelers, I had an opportunity to manage at Jared the Galleria of jewelry in Sacramento. My tenure there gave me the chance to lead on a larger scale and learn about another type of retail jewelry sales.  I was awarded the Presidents Club Award for sales achievements. Although I enjoyed my time at Jareds, deep down inside, I know I'm an independent jeweler at heart. Being  able to assist my customers wholeheartedly without the pressures of a corporate oversight will ensure I'm giving you the absolute personal service with your best interest in mind.

Which brings me to the next chapter of my journey. 2017 is going to be an amazing year as we open my family owned jewelry store              ADRIAN BLANCO JEWELRY in Folsom, CA.  Everything I've learned over the years has lead me to this point. I am very excited to serve this wonderful city and give the same dedication and passion as I did in my previous positions.
