Smith Jewelers has been a Redlands' business fixture for 85 years and after a decades long career in our family business, Robert and I are announcing our retirement. While ultimately exciting, it is also bittersweet.
Smith Jewelers has a rich legacy in Redlands and we are proud of the part we have played in that legacy. Our family has been at the helm of Smith Jewelers since 1959, and while everyone retires sometime, it has been a soul-searching decision for us. We are proud to have reached our 85th year in business, something truly rare in today's world, and see it as the perfect way to end our jewelry career. It has been a privilege to carry on the traditions of professionalism, integrity and quality that Howard Smith established in 1931. Not only is Smith Jewelers what we "do," it is also much of who we are. We will miss our customers. But since our sons have chosen different career paths, we are eager to have the flexibility to devote more time to our family and travel adventures.
Without you, our valued customers and friends, Smith Jewelers would not be Redlands' oldest premier jewelry store. Your confidence and patronage have allowed us to do something we love that, in many instances, will allow our legacy to live on via future generations. Thank you for letting us take part in many of the most memorable moments in your lives by celebrating them with something special from Smith's.
Thank you for making Smith Jewelers the choice for jewelry for 85 years!
- Cindy and Robert Calderon
