Some of us here at Jersey Shore Style are quite the jewelry aficionados. And like many jewelry lovers, we thought that buying the perfect gold ring or necklace was out of reach, until Belmar Jewelers came into our lives.
This one-of-a-kind place sells eye-catching estate and pre-owned pieces, and also provides repairs and appraisals. Best part: the selection, which includes unique finds from the 1800s to today, is well-priced. For starters, we bought a gold apple charm and necklace for a class-gift for a teacher for just under $100. We also bought beautiful 14k gold hoop earrings for a little girl for under $50, and we couldn’t be happier! Anywhere else it would have been a cheaper quality for much more. And we picked up a wonderful gold sun charm necklace for ourselves – at under $40, we just couldn’t say no.
Jewelry isn’t all that Belmar Jewelers carries: the shop also has ancient Roman coins, recovered pirate treasure, and other antique collectibles. That’s why Belmar Jewelers is the perfect place to shop for gifts, whether it’s for a recent college graduate or a child’s birthday. The staff—led by owner Joseph Carl, who has worked in the industry for over 30 years—-is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Just check out the store’s fact-filled Facebook page to get a sampling of their expertise.
Belmar Jewelers is a must-see the next time you find yourself in the area. The store’s great prices, fantastic finds, and sweet staff make for a truly pleasant shopping experience. And if you’re around on a Sunday, stop by with your valuables to take part in a roadshow-style (think Antiques Roadshow) appraisal. You never know how much that old watch might actually be worth!
