|Arthur W. Ballard started as a jewelry craftsman apprentice in Omaha, Nebraska at the age of 12. In the year 1900 he moved out west to Los Angeles, along with his wife and 2 children. The company was started in 1917 when his son Arthur V. purchased his half share of the business for $3800 at the age of 17. The company was strictly a wholesale manufacturer located in downtown Los Angeles in the area know today as the Jewelry District. Arthur W. and his son Arthur V. were also among the first diamond wholesalers in the country to travel to and maintain an office in Antwerp Belgium, the diamond capital of the world. Glenn and Guy Ballard joined the company in the 70's and 80's. Both have become master bench jewelers, that still to this day perform hand crafted jewelry tasks daily.|
