Don and Thelma Foltz moved to Reynoldsburg in 1950. They opened the jewelry store in October 1953, and for the next 37 years, it was the only jewelry store in town. We bought all of our class rings, cufflinks, anniversary presents, charms, Mother’s Day presents, watches, wedding rings, and much more from Don and Thelma.
Thelma’s daughter, Dianne, worked in the store for 20 years. She is also a registered jeweler, certified gemologist, and has a certificate in Jewelry Design. Jerry is a US Army Veteran who served in Vietnam. He retired as Chief of the Reynoldsburg Truro Fire Department in December of 2011.
