Our founder is Easton Dawkins. A distinguished business pioneer, Mr. Dawkins has compiled several enterprises that have achieved outstanding performance. A military veteran, Mr. Dawkins served in Germany during the Vietnam War at the age of 19. Following his service, Mr. Dawkins began his career in his family’s diamond business. In May of 1977, Ronella Lasing Corporation was formed, becoming a premier refining company for laser drilling diamonds. The removal of imperfections from diamonds was executed through a tedious process of drilling microscopic lines into the diamonds, treating them with an electronic laser beam, and soaking the diamonds in a mixture of acids.
In 1989, his uncles retired and Easton Dawkins and his brother became the successors of Ronella Lasing Corporation. Soon after they formed Five Star Precious Metals, LLC, which is today a prominent landmark in the 47th street Diamond District in New York City.
In May of 2010 Mr. Dawkins opened his only location in Atlanta, Georgia looking to bring his family’s NY concept to where he had moved his family to years before. Atlanta Gold & Silver became one the primer dealers in the south east for Throughout the years AGS has received national recognition for their industry services.
