Meet The TeamThe People Behind Park City Jewelers
Ken Whipple credits his grandfather for all the successes in his life. Mentoring him as a small boy, they spent many days in the desert learning about rocks, fossils, and life. Even though he has since passed on, Ken honors his grandfather by retaining his honesty and generosity plus vast knowledge of anything mineral or mechanical.
As a National JCK Design award winner, Ken’s talents cover all of Park City Jewelers’ Bases. An amazingly creative businessman who has no concept of “thinking inside the box”, Ken steers the team upward. Down to earth, well traveled, and up for any new experience, Ken is an innovator in all aspects of jewelry. Enjoying spending time with his family first and foremost, he loves to spin his jewelry knowledge into fantastic stories for children and adults alike.

Designer / Owner
Cole spent much of his childhood hiking and filling his pockets so full of rocks he couldn’t walk. He learned his love of both rocks and jewelry from his dad, Ken Whipple. Cole began working and helping out around Park City Jewelers as a young teen learning both design and production. Cole is a perfectionist in all aspects of life and aims to be the best in all that he does. In fact, several years after taking up bowling he bowled several “perfect” 300 games. His jewelry designs are influenced by many different parts of his life — as Cole’s love of motorcycles and the outdoors are visible in his designs.
Cole is trained in the CAD program (computer aided design) and has travelled throughout the country to learn those skills. He is forever trying to improve so he can bring the best to his customers.
