Marshall’s Jewelers opened a second jewelry showroom last fall, its first in the Blackstone Valley, locating it at 1223 Providence Road in Whitinsville, next to Jube’s Restaurant. Owner and Master Jeweler Richard Goldberg says customers are thrilled with having a jewelry store closer to where they shop, conveniently located, with plenty of parking. Marshall’s Jewelers has been serving the local community for three generations, originally in Milford, then moving to Bellingham, and now in Whitinsville. “I want to thank the community for welcoming us here to our newest space.”
Richard says, “I love what I do every day and am passionate about fine jewelry and watches. As Master of Romance, it’s my job to make sure everything we create - whether it’s related to a wedding, anniversary or other special life event - it has to be perfect. People come here for the quality of service and the availability of a full range of products. Whether they come for a graduation bracelet or watch for a high school senior or the perfectly priced, highest quality custom piece for a wedding ring, the customer is treated with respect and care.”
Building trust and rapport with clients is paramount to Richard and his dedicated staff. Most of them have been with Marshall’s for years, many of them more than 20. Richard says he himself started sweeping the floor when he was seven and his grandfather taught him how to engrave when he was ten.
After obtaining a degree in Finance and Investments from Babson College, he went on to get a degree as Graduate Gemologist and degrees in Colored Stone Grading and Pearl Grading. “I understand that the relationship with your jeweler is a special relationship, one that combines trust, knowledge, and sensitivity to the sentiment of the occasion being celebrated,” says Richard.
The staff at Marshall’s understands sentimentality, especially when it comes to your favorite pieces. If they become worn or broken, need a new battery, Marshall’s in-house repair shop will be happy to repair and restore them. Using both traditional and modern techniques, each piece will be carefully handled and repaired, using the best method for each piece.
If watches are your thing, be sure to check out the large selection available at this brand-new location.
Richard says when he isn’t actually designing his own jewelry pieces he enjoys looking for special pieces, good values, and unique styles.
Marshall’s also buys gold, estimates estate pieces for buying and selling, and will take some older pieces on consignment.
Marshall’s move to Whitinsville puts it more centrally located within their client base, drawing from all over the Blackstone Valley and especially Northbridge, Sutton, Douglas, Uxbridge and Mendon. The Bellingham store serves those towns a little further south.
The company’s mission is to be a trusted, personal, local jewelry store serving the needs of its customers, guaranteeing the work, knowing you, and doing the whatever it takes to have you come back again and again for all your jewelry needs.
Marshall’s Jewelers is at 1223 Providence Rd., Whitinsville, 508 234-4300, and at 191 Mechanic St. in Bellingham; on the web at www.marshallsjewelers.com.
