Martin & Melinda Marten, Owners

 Martin got thrown into the jewelry world when he was scammed and bought a fake ring. After that, he got bit by the gold bug and wanted to know all that there was to know about diamonds and fine jewelry. Soon after, he met Melinda and together they were driven to make their jewelry dreams a reality. They both went to jewelry school and traveled the world finding the most amazing prices and quality in jewelry for their customers. They put in hard work and long hours for many years to make Silver and Gold what it is today. Read all about the History of Spirit Lake Silver and Gold, here.
