CARATS Pat Lee, Owner 333 Lincoln Center, Stockton (209) 955-0715 www.caratsjewelry.com
San Francisco native Patricia Lee has always loved jewelry and its expressiveness. Moving to Stockton in 1992, she tired of the long commute to her Silicon Valley Human Resources job and opened Carats in 1994. In addition to carrying brands like Crislu, Majorica, Lori Bonn, and Ice Watch, Carats is the only authorized dealer of the popular PANDORA brand in Stockton. One of Pat’s greatest joys is seeing her customers’ unique personalities appear when they choose their jewelry, particularly through meaningful pieces such as those found within PANDORA and similar collections. Working as a team with husband Curtis Chong, Pat runs several shopping websites, and the duo opened a PANDORA store at the Westfield San Francisco Centre in 2010.
