We are a family-owned and operated business in the sunny, beautiful Florida Keys. It is our mission to help bring each client's individual experiences to life through custom pieces of jewelry they can enjoy for as long as they live. It has been our pleasure, for more than 30 sustained years, to design and create high-quality, one of a kind jewelry for each of our customers. The jewelers at Mineshaft Designs & Treasures are dedicated to serving the public, not only through forging our own products, but also by carefully adjusting and repairing a variety of family-inherited, or otherwise acquired, meaningful and precious, jewelry. It is the jewelers’ meticulous attention to detail that makes these pieces both superb and durable.
Loukas Kongos is the master jeweler on-site. Originally from Athens, Greece, Loukas learned to make jewelry from his father. He immigrated to this country with a dream to build a business and a family. Since 1989, Loukas has been able to create a massively positive reputation in the Keys through word-of-mouth alone. Because of his scrupulous attention to detail and his ability to build lifelong professional relationships, Loukas has an amazing customer retention. Not only do people come back year after year to get their jewelry from him, they trust him so much that they send their loved ones in to get pieces of their own.
Antonio is the son of Loukas, making him a third generation jeweler. Antonio is passionate about incorporating elements from his love of fishing, boating, and the ocean into his designs. He draws inspiration from his surroundings in gorgeous Key West in order to infuse nautical themes into his jewelry-making. First and foremost, Antonio is a father of his two beloved children, and this business provides a means for him to support them and help them live out their aspirations as well. Antonio is enthusiastic to serve this community and beyond in the years to come!
