Colorful Doug and Uptight Sean
1986: Doug Spence was the crazy one in charge of dreaming the impossible. Sean Jones was the uptight one in charge of quality control, finances and flight schedules; all the grown-up stuff. Together, they reinvented the engagement ring business for a new millennium.
Do you remember when Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon played Oscar Madison and Felix Unger in The Odd Couple? If you do, you've met Doug Spence and Sean Jones. They're sort of like:
John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd
Chris Farley and David Spade
Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder
Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller
Pinky and The Brain
When the white-knuckle days of risk and travel and trial-and-error and nonstop experiments were finally behind them, Doug got bored and asked Sean to buy him out. Sean obliged and they remain great friends.
Sean is one of those guys who probably irons his underwear. You know, a real detail guy, the kind of person every customer hopes will be in charge of quality control and customer satisfaction. Seriously. When we want to mess with him, we threaten to eat French fries in his car. The idea of a French fry hiding between the seat and the console is the kind of thing that keeps Sean awake at night. He's the reason we make such high quality engagement rings.
Sean is extremely happily married to Kristen and they have two kids.
Sean has absolute authority at Spence Diamonds and he's committed to making you happy. Seriously, this is a great place to work. We get to feel good every day about what we do and why we do it.
People who have found a partner for life are the happiest people on earth.
Spence exists to make happy people even happier.
Trust us, we won't let you down.
