In 1899, Marcus Joy Christensen, known as “M.J.” was born to parents of Danish descent. By 1927 he was hired as a railroad watch inspector for the Union Pacific Railway in Las Vegas. His love for the jewelry business began long before the first MJ Christensen store opening on April 18, 1939 in the corner of a drugstore on First and Fremont. Family owned and operated with unquestioned ethics and integrity, MJ Christensen Diamonds made a name for themselves in the Las Vegas Valley that stands firm today.
