Bernard Jewelers has been serving Tewksbury since 1989
Right out of high school, at 18 years old, Bernard started apprenticing for a jeweler in the Jewelers Building. He loved the work and decided to pursue it further.
Bernard got to know Tewksbury through a friend and recalls, "Although there were other jewelers in town, no one offered on site repairs and custom work like we do. I liked it here and decided to have a family and create our business." We recently moved to our third location in town, which is allowing us to further expand our inventory and has given us more room to perform intricate jewelry repairs and create spectacular custom designs for our customers.
A Family Based Business
Bernard and Suzan
"Customer service and quality are the bread and butter of any great business. We offer a great experience when you come into our store. Anyone can compete with price, we want to make sure that you're more than happy with what you came in for whether it's buying, selling, or repairing jewelry. Using our state-of-the-art technology laser welder, we can repair anything, even eyeglasses. We repair on-site and create custom pieces. In our store, you can find something for everyone - from costume jewelry to diamonds and gold. We have a new program that allows us to virtually create any piece of jewelry as you watch. It presents you with a life-like picture so you know exactly what you'll be getting before you purchase each piece. We also offer insurance appraisals with an excellent independent gemologist who has been working in the industry for many years."
Bernard takes as much pride in his quality workmanship as Suzan takes in assisting customers to find just the right piece of jewelry to fit their needs and their pocketbook. This intricate weaving of teamwork and expertise has lead to great success in their business.
Alex and Gabi
Bernard and Suzan's daughters both graduated from Tewksbury High, and are taking over the family business. They are both certified diamond graders from the Gemological Institute of America, and look forward to continuing their education at G.I.A.
Alex's expertise is jewelry design. With a software that we have in store, she can make a dream piece of jewelry come to life. From classic with a modern twist, to something right out of a fairy tale, she has a true talent when it comes to designing something that will be worn for generations. Fun fact: She runs a fashion blog!
Gabi is the person behind the computers (yes, this is her talking in third person!). She makes sure the website and all social media platforms are up to date, and enjoyable for everyone who comes across them. She also chooses most of the jewelry in our showcases meticulously, so when are looking for something special, she will help you find the perfect piece. Fun fact: She trains jiu jitsu!
Thank you for supporting a local family-owned and operated business, open since 1989!
