Phillip Bosen is a veteran jewelry retail expert, having been involved with different aspects of the business since 1982. Bosen started working at his family’s small jewelry store after school, at the age of twelve. This early start got him hooked!
He has worked with small, medium, and larger jewelers and has learned from the best.
Always paying close attention and learning new and innovative ways to improve the functionality and profitability of the businesses has been a hallmark of his career. Phillip has attended and participated in a wide variety of educational seminars, leadership courses, and AGS Conclaves.
Mentoring, coaching, and teaching others has always been a passion that has extended beyond the jewelry world and into a variety of volunteer opportunities.
Phillip’s consultancy specifically helps retail jewelers improve profitability and quality of life.
Phillip is a brilliant gemologist. His dedication, customer focus, and many years of experience makes the Von Bargen’s experience memorable. He assisted me in building a beautiful, personal jewelry wardrobe, including designing a custom ring. Phillip would stand out at any premier luxury designer or couture jewelry store world wide.
Phillip helped play a critical role in the growth of Von Bargen’s Jewelry over the past six years. Phillip attracted and hired strong and successful leadership for the Burlington and Stowe locations as well as assisting with the hiring of sales staff throughout the company. Phillip provided training to the management team including assisting staff members in reaching their full potential, hiring and firing,and culture immersion.

I’m am so grateful to have Phillip N. Bosen as a colleague and friend! Phillip has not only presented at our Maryland AGS Guild twice (and was awesome!), but he also just recently provided me with amazing feedback and recommendations after doing a second interview with three part time sales candidates. Making this hiring decision was daunting and he made me feel confident and at ease. Phillip is professional, thorough and accommodating. I highly recommend him for all jewelry consulting needs!
Phillip is incredibly customer-oriented – down to the last detail. Not only is he professional and very knowledgeable about his product, but he is very personable and understands his customers’ needs/wants to a detail that is unsurpassed. I would not hesitate (and don’t hesitate) in sending my friends, family, and colleagues to see Phillip. He is a pleasure to work with and is highly talented in his field.

I was inspired by Phillip’s Client Advisory Board idea when I heard him speak a few years ago. I took his idea and tailored it to fit my business. My CAB took the form of a Book Club, which keeps my best clients engaged, interested, and always learning about new jewelry topics. This has led directly to thousands of dollars in sales. Having intimate social contact with a group of clients is enormously helpful in gauging interest in jewelry and trends. Phillip’s consulting has helped me immensely, in areas from new location scouting to in-store event planning and execution.
He has experience and ideas are always spot on!
I would recommend him to any professional jeweler who needs a new perspective on their business.
