About Us

Travis Piper is a self motivated entrepreneur and lifelong resident of Vincennes, Indiana.  Travis got his start in the jewelry business completely by accident during the fall of 1998 by taking a part time job at Friedman Jewelers while attending Vincennes University for flight aviation.  Fast forward to the following year and Travis found himself working at Jewel Craft Jewelers in downtown Vincennes and realized that he wanted to become a jeweler. By 2001, he made his way out to California to study at the Gemological Institue of America and earned his Graduate Gemologist degree.  Upon returning to Vincennes, he continued working downtown as a bench jeweler but also found himself hungry to learn about real estate.  Over the next nine years Travis spent time in Florida, Ohio, and Wisconsin learning the art of advanced diamond setting, jewelry casting and CAD design all the while working as a Realtor and Auctioneer.  Travis opened Piper Diamond Co in May of 2012 and by 2013 the store became a LaserStar Certified Jewelry Repair Center.  By combining a strong drive to succeed and a philosophy to satisfy the needs of clients, Travis Piper has gained the trust of both his jewelry and real estate clientele.
