A.J. Martin has been collecting jewelry since the age of six. She opened her first shop in downtown Nashville in 1986 and relocated to the current location on West End in the fall of 1990. Nearly forty years in the business, she loves fine antique and vintage jewelry, her garden, and her koi pond.
Dustin Tittle joined A.J. Martin in the winter of 2010 initially as seasonal staff. A Vanderbilt graduate, he manages the shop, created and maintains the website and Etsy store, and coparents a cat, Margret, with his husband. He obtained his Applied Jewelry Professional (AJP) credential from the Gemological Institute of America in March 2023 and is pursuing his Graduate Gemologist (G.G.) diploma.
