In 1932 Frank's two sons, Clarence and Sidney came to work for him. This was the beginning of a long family history in the jewelry business. Over the years Pollak and Son's had many locations on and around  the Bowery, (at that time the heart of the jewelry trade in New York City. By 1953 Frank Pollak and Son's opened a second store at 8 west 47 Street on the corner of 5th. Avenue. This was becoming the "new" diamond center for the jewelry trade in Manhattan.  In 1962 Tom Murray joined the firm as an expert in antiques and all phases of the jewelry business, Tom retired from the firm in 2007. In 1968 Frank Pollak, the grandson of the founder was brought to work at the family business. In 1974, Beth Watstein joined Frank Pollak and Sons as a renowned  jewelry expert. Her knowledge and expertise has helped to further the level of excellence that Frank Pollak and Sons clients have become accustomed to. From 1968 to 1995 Pollak and Son's developed a loyal following of clients and perfected their approach of  customer service and attention to detail. 1995 saw the move to their present location at 608 fifth Avenue, where the tradition of customer satisfaction prevails as strong as ever.
