When Buying Jewelry
It is better to buy from a reputable dealer whom you
know, and pay him a fair profit than to buy from a ped
ler or by mail goods at attractive prices, and which may
prove to be worthless. Our line of jewelry contains no
trashy or cheap pieces. We guarantee every article we
sell and our reputation for fair and honest dealing back
it up. A piece of good jewelry is a token of esteem
which is seldom underestimated. A gold watch or ring
is a gift that will serve as a constant reminder for years.
