WEST AKRON — Kimberly Jewelry Store, located at 1683 W. Exchange St., near West Market Street, offers a variety of fine jewelry. 

The store, first opened in 1940, was purchased by Al and Frances Grajzl, of Chardon, in 1974, and shortly after, the family moved to Akron. Since then, three sons, including Ralph, Al and David, moved into the family business. Al Grajzl operates another retail store, while Ralph Grajzl took over as president and David Grajzl as treasurer of Kimberly Jewelry Store in 2004.

“We are a full in-store shop known for fine jewelry, quality work and fair prices,” said David Grajzl. “We cherry pick lines and look for unique, well-made pieces.”

Grajzl explained the store carries high-end items including wedding ring sets, watches, necklaces and bracelets. The store has brands such as Spark Creations, A. Jaffe and Rado.

Kimberly Jewelry Store also does custom design work. Grajzl explained custom design items can include new creations or reworked pieces made with input from customers.

“If a customer comes in with an idea or pictures, we can combine elements to create a wax figure or a computer generated design and then create the item,” he added. “We can use new purchases or reset old stones. No job is too small or too large; we can handle it all.

“Here at Kimberly Jewelry, you are dealing with jewelers who have extensive experience,” added Grajzl.

In addition to fine and custom jewelry, Kimberly also focuses on providing good service.

“We are all about customer service here, and we make sure our customers are happy with their jewelry before they leave the store,” said Grajzl.

In addition to fine and custom jewelry, Kimberly Jewelry also sells fashion jewelry in crystal and sterling silver and the popular Pandora bracelets, as well as baby gifts and other items, such as pens.

Staff also does jewelry and watch repair and can do appraisals by appointment.

Kimberly Jewelry Store was voted the No. 1 jewelry store for its products, service and friendly staff by several media outlets in recent years, according to Grajzl.

Kimberly Jewelry Store hours are Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The store is closed Sundays. A new Web site for the store is under construction. For more information, call 330-867-3990.
