Five Generations of Jewelry Excellence.
In 1874 Kate Bresser’s Great Grandfather started in the jewelry business in Waterloo, Wisconsin. 144 years and 5 generations later, Gysbers Jewelry is an American classic, time tested jewelry store.
Originally called Doering Jewelry, Kate’s Grandmother, Olga ran the jewelry store at the age of 16. When she married Myron Gysbers in the early 1920’s the store’s name was then changed to Gysbers Jewelry.
Kate’s father, John, started in the family business in the early 1950’s. An accomplished musician and music teacher, John also gave piano and organ lessons right in the store. Kate joined the family business at the age of 19, working alongside her father, and in 1992 she decided to purchase it from him. For 20 of those years, Kate also worked on the bench as the store goldsmith.
Customers in Waupun are greeted by sights of an old fashion Jewelry store with beautiful 8 foot tall, beveled glass wall cases and ornate floor cases. Staying current with jewelry designs and trends, Kate hand picks every piece of jewelry and loose diamond that is sold in the store.
In May 2016, Gysbers Jewelry added a second location in the heart of downtown Green Lake that is managed by one of Kate’s daughters, Maggie Shell. The Green Lake location offers the same excellent customer service along with a full line of unique and one of a kind jewelry designs.
EverLink Collection by Kate Bresser
While raising her 6 children, Kate often found herself waiting at the ice rink. Carrying a sketch pad, she started sketching jewelry designs. From those sketches came the EverLink Collection. Each design contains links symbolizing the strength of a bond of family and friendship.
These unique pendants and rings are available in Sterling Silver and 14 karat yellow or white gold. Diamonds or birthstones can be added to make your pieces truly unique to you.
“The seasons of life give us joys, blessings, and challenges. Yet throughout each journey, family links never break - they only grow stronger. Let this be the symbol of being Everlinked together.” -EverLink Collection by Kate Bresser
