Continental Jewelers is a second generation store owned by Phillip & Eva Schlenker.

The store was founded in 1968 by Eva’s parents, Hanns and Inge Hottes, for whom craftsmanship and product quality were always paramount. Phil and Eva met at diamond setting school in Portland, Oregon, and married shortly after. In 1997, Phillip joined the store and Eva’s parents retired. The same tradition of craftsmanship and quality continues to this day at Continental Jewelers with an emphasis on fine design and rare gemstones. As jewelers and gemologists with over 60 years of combined experience, Phillip and Eva are uniquely qualified to select and offer to you the finest and rarest of the Earth’s gems set into the most beautiful and finely crafted designs available anywhere.
