She[owner Debbie Pekala] carries a wide array of fine jewelry, antique and vintage pieces, and handmade sterling pieces with precious and semi-precious stones. When customers walk in they will find a case to their right filled with jewelry they can buy if, in Pekala's words, "their pocket books are a little light." If they take a step further, however, they will find a collection of diamond necklaces and bracelets ranging from 14 to 18 karats as well as platinum.

Romantic Jewelers also carries rare hand-crafted rose-cut diamonds, which Pekala says very few other stores carry. Another display case is arranged solely with precious and semi-precious stones including amethyst, pink and yellow sapphires, rubies, and emeralds.

"They’re pretty things you don’t see everywhere," Pekala said.

Her collection continues with large lemon topaz stones, which greatly resemble diamonds, an estate collection of pre-owned jewelry, perfume, and "eggs" Pekala says make great gifts and are a more appealing alternative to traditional gift boxes in which to store jewelry.

Romantic Jewelers also offers full watch and jewelry repair. The store also offers custom-designed engagement rings and wedding bands, and this particular section seems to be one of Pekala’s favorite parts about the store.

Romantic Jewelers will be having their ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday night during the First Friday festivities.

Good luck to Debbie and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.
