New jewelry store offers estate gems
CHARLES TOWN – After years of working in jewelry sales, Donna Hardy knows most customers want to pick up pieces on the spot.
And because time-tested estate jewelry fills many of the showcases at Jefferson Estate Jewelers, the just-opened store in Somerset Plaza near Gold’s Gym in Charles Town, customers can find something they like on the spot and then leave with it in hand, Hardy said.
“We have classic pieces and then for people who prefer modern jewelry, we have our Pandora selections,” she said. “This way, no one has to have something special-ordered. People typically don’t like to wait for it.”
Hardy said the store also caters to shoppers in every budget range. “Whether a customer has a lot to spend or is a teenager working a part-time job or a retired person on a fixed income, we want to have jewelry in their price range.”
On Saturday, more than 400 turned out for the store’s grand opening, Hardy said. The festivities included hourly drawings as well as a ribbon-cutting ceremony with officials from the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce.
“We had lots of great feedback from customers,” she said. “We couldn’t ask for more.”
