Jeff has been raised in the business since birth. He began learning the ropes from company founder and Grandfather, Mac McHaley, and his father, Dan. Jeff graduated from the Gemological Institute of America with a Graduate Gemologist in Residence Diploma in 1987. A year later, he completed his degree in Supervision from Purdue and joined the company full-time. He is a full member of the International Society of Appraisers. Jeff is also current with USPAP, is extremely knowledgeable in coins and bullion, and works closely with both PCGS and NGC as an authorized dealer.
Dan purchased the company from his Father-in-Law, Mac, in 1972. He immediately set out, expanding the business in a multitude of ways. The growth under Dan led to the store's construction in its current location in 1980. Dan has been a true entrepreneur and guided the growth of Vierk's Fine Jewelry from a small niche store to a jewelry, coin, and bullion landmark in Mid-North Indiana. While currently semi-retired in Florida, he still keeps a pulse of the business and is a wealth of information and knowledge.
