Lori Ramsey
Senior Buyer/Vice President

Helping build Ramsey's Diamond Jewelers into the diamond destination it is today has been a joy!  In many ways, I matured as a professional designer as our family business grew and matured.  Working with my brother has been a lot of fun.  He has taught me much about business over the years, and I'm thankful for his vision and drive. My forte is creative design, often born out of local, current environmental and cultural events. It’s these complimentary skills that have fueled our success over the decades.

My father, Bob Ramsey, started our business in 1958.  He was a real jewelry craftsman.  Nothing makes me happier than to talk with one of my dad’s customers, (or their kids or grandkids), hear their stories, and see the pieces of jewelry my dad made for them. 

As the lead buyer and designer for Ramsey’s, I am delighted when a guest has an idea and trusts me to make it even more beautiful than they could have imagined. It’s cliche', but so true - it's not work for me; I seriously love what I do!

When I’m not at work I love traveling and spending time with my fiancée and our families. One of my passions is dog advocacy.  I'm a huge advocate for dog rescue and have spent much time over the years fostering dogs who need a temporary home and some love. I am also a long-standing active member of the Metairie Rotary Group and I do volunteer work for local community service organizations.
