It all began when a young couple had an idea, a thought that with a lot of hard work, ideals, integrity and experience they could build a business of their own. Roger had the background in the industry. He had worked his way up the corporate ladder over 17 years at the firm named Henry Birks and Sons to become the manager of the fine jewellery department for the lower mainland in the B.C. operation. Karen, who also began her career at Henry Birks and Sons, had the accounting and bookkeeping knowledge. Together, in 1979, they opened Roger Watson Jewellers. With a very young family to look after, Roger managed the retail operation while Karen looked after the paperwork and finances from home.
