Albert Minister, the founder of Corona Jewellery Ltd, passed away peacefully on June 2nd at the age of 87. This loss leaves a mark not only on the company, but also on the jewellery community as a whole.
Minister completed his education as a master goldsmith in Pforzheim, Germany. He then immigrated to Canada in 1951, where his gift for designing and hand crafting jewellery led him to eventually establish Corona Jewellery. His vision and pursuit of excellence drove the company’s growth, allowing it to become one of today’s industry leaders.
“Albert Minister never stopped working or striving to make Corona the company you see today,” says John Minister, Albert’s son and current president of the organization. “He continued to come into the office right up until the day he was hospitalized. That just shows how truly dedicated he was to this company.”
Albert lovingly passed on his knowledge and passion for the industry to his son and grandchildren, who will continue to honour his legacy. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and colleagues. CJ
