Believe it or not, it all started with the love of rock! After graduating college in 1972, Brian became a jewelry sales rep and traveled throughout the southern United States. With the curiosity of jewelry design in his heart, and his large turquoise collection, he furthered his education and became a silversmith. In 1976 he opened his first jewelry store in the Village Shopping Center in Austin, Texas where he grew his business. Brian continued his jewelry education through GIA, (Gemological Institute of America) and holds accreditations in Diamond Grading, Stone Setting, Platinum, SW Casting and Doorstep Diamond Grading.
In 1984 Brian was hired to be the first official appraiser for the State of Texas by the late Governor Ann Richards. In 1995 Mr. Hoover renamed his store Avant Garde Jewelers and continued to grow the business, specializing in fine diamonds, custom jewelry design, jewelry restoration and repair.
Now with four decades in the jewelry business under his belt, Brian continues his dedication with honesty and integrity. His passion will always be custom jewelry design and loves helping his customers create their future heirlooms.
