He also plans to further develop his personal brand — Tim Da Jeweler. “I started operating under Tim Da Jeweler because I felt like it was important that people could put a face to the TSV Jeweler, it’s especially important as a black jeweler. I want to be able to serve my people, a lot of black people buy the jewelry but very few are selling. ”
