Jewelry Creations first opened its doors in downtown Dover, NH, in 1981. Since then, the store has experienced tremendous growth and has undergone two expansions; quadrupling the physical size of the store. Owners Doug and Kelly Glennon attribute this growth to honesty, integrity and community commitment. "We believe in treating everyone with respect and honesty. We believe everyone has the right to the best possible quality their money can buy. This philosophy has led to thousands of very satisfied customers who not only continue to shop at Jewelry Creations, but also recommend us to their family and friends.”
In order to find wonderful, high quality jewelry at the best possible price, Doug and Kelly travel to several jewelry shows each year and even travel to Belgium (the diamond capital of the world) to hand select loose diamonds for their customers. The Glennon’s explain, "by attending up to five jewelry trade shows each year, we are able to keep abreast of the most current fashions. We seek out the extraordinary and unusual as well as traditional elegant jewelry. We carry many different designer lines and always look at the new designers each year. Interesting designs, lively stones, quality fabrication, and reasonable pricing all play a part in our decision to purchase jewelry."
Jewelry Creations offers customers many services, including free cleaning and jewelry inspection, free layaway, customer wish list, monthly drawing for a fine piece of jewelry, and a frequent buyer card, which gives the customer a 5% credit on their jewelry purchases toward future purchases. Most importantly, Jewelry Creations offers in-house custom design and jewelry repair. Goldsmiths on the premises can repair your favorite piece of jewelry, restore an older piece of jewelry, or create a new, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry just for you.
Purchasing, giving, and wearing jewelry is a very personal experience. We all enjoy different pieces of jewelry for a variety of reasons. Maybe you remember your first gift of jewelry, perhaps from your parents, which made you feel quite grown up. Perhaps your memory is the bittersweet joy of restoring your late grandmother's ring, so you can wear it and think of her. Whether your memories are filled with the excitement of opening a gift of jewelry from a loved one or of selecting a much-deserved gift for yourself, jewelry evokes many emotions.
We take our role in helping you make the best choices for you and your loved ones very seriously. After all, we are privileged you have selected us to be part of these special times in your life.
Whatever occasion prompted you to visit us today, we thank you for browsing our site. We can’t wait to meet you!
