Established in 1983, James Martin Jewelers has been serving the tri-state area for more than thirty years. It began as a partnership in a small 800 square foot store in Asbury Square. In 1990, Jim Hefel became the sole owner and expanded the store to 2100 square feet. In 2009, he moved the store from Asbury Square to John F. Kennedy Road where it remains today.
Jim Hefel was a self-taught businessman. He began working with a construction company right out of high school in 1967. But, like many of us, his life took an unexpected turn. When he was injured on the job, he was forced to look at other career options. In 1971, he graduated from the Joseph Bulova School of Watchmaking in New York.
Jim Hefel was part of a partnership that established James Martin Jewelers in 1983. From the beginning, the store sold custom jewelry. They also specialized in both jewelry and watch repair. When Jim Hefel became the sole owner of the store in 1990, he expanded it from the humble 800 square foot space to a much larger 2100 square foot space filled with an impressive selection of unique jewelry. Jim continued operating the store until 2012 and remained the sole owner until he passed away in 2013. He believed in running a business with integrity and treating his employees like family. Today the store remains a family run business with the same morals.
James Martin Jewelers continues to impress with unique designs and styles. As the logo says, “Exquisite Designs, Exceptional Values.” That is exactly what we provide. We offer several options for several different occasions. For the boyfriend ready to propose, we have a wide selection of distinctive engagement rings. For the couple ready to tie the knot, we have several wedding bands and for those already married and celebrating a milestone in their marriage, we have anniversary rings. We also carry an exclusive selection of earrings, pendants and bracelets.
To ensure that you are receiving a quality product and we are maintaining the highest value and integrity, we obtain our diamonds from reputable sources in accordance to the Kimberly Process. We want you to know that your diamonds were obtained, cleaned and shaped by only qualified, dependable sources.
To sum it up, James Martin Jewelers has been providing custom jewelry and specialized watch and jewelry repair services in the Dubuque, Iowa area and beyond for more than 30 years. We humbly began as a partnership in an 800 square foot space and have expanded to nearly triple that size. We remain a family owned business.
