About Us

Monte Franzetti is a fourth generation Austinite. He and his wife Cathy, also a native Austinite, opened Franzetti Jewelers in the heart of Austin's unique Kerbey Lane shopping district in 1987.

Monte received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Texas and he has been in the fine jewelry business for over 40 years. Cathy is also a graduate of the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Science degree.

Monte has an extensive background in fine jewelry. He began with Stelfox Jewelers here in Austin, part of The Traditional Jewelers of America. He opened six Sweeny's Jewelry stores in Brownsville, Harlingen, McAllen and Laredo Texas. He was promoted to oversee seven Lawtons Jewelers in Miami, Winter Park, Altamonte Springs and Orlando Florida.

While in Florida Monte studied the designs of Benvenuto Cellini, Louis Cartier and Carl Fabregé and he taught classic design principles of Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Rococo and architectural inspired jewelry designs. He also has extensive knowledge of the historical influence of the Egyptian, Etruscan and Greek design styles.


Monte and Cathy returned to Texas where he oversaw the installation of Cartier Les Must Boutiques within the six Sweeney's Jewelry stores on the border.


He was again promoted and returned to Austin where he oversaw three Stelfox Jewelers, three Linz Jewelers in San Antonio and Sweeney's Jewelers in Victoria.


After this incredible 12 year journey with Traditional Jewelers of America Monte and Cathy followed their dream and opened their own jewelry store on Kerbey Lane in 1987.


Today they are so proud that their sons Bobby and Tony, both very talented artist in their own right are sharing in their artistic passion for jewelry design.


Franzetti Jewelers stands ready to welcome you to our family.

  • Woohoo! As good as it gets! All changes saved My now-husband proposed with a beautiful ring made of flowers because he could not figure out what to get me. I don't wear a lot of jewelry so I didn't even know what I would want!! After hours of searching online, I kind of had an idea of what I was going for but still needed guidance. I didn't even know what size I was! We went into Franzetti and was helped by Tony and another lady(I don't remember her name!). I was able to pick the perfect ring with a thin rose gold band just like I wanted and Tony helped us pick out the diamond since I had no idea where to go with that! He showed us all kinds of diamonds and clarity..He helped us stay under our budget with the perfect ring. We've been back twice since then to pick out our wedding band/ring. My husband had no idea what he wanted at all! Tony helped him pick out the perfect ring and he couldn't wait to wear it. (A REALLY GOOD SIGN for a man that never ever wears jewelry.) ... Read more
