Looking in the windows of Bob Schoenborn’s Jewelry in Kiel, it doesn’t appear much has changed over the years — but when you walk in the door, you will not only see new faces, but new merchandise as well. You will be greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable staff of jewelers as you enter a store filled with rich tradition.
Like his father and mother, Oscar and Edna, and his grandfather Matt, Bob has been working in the jewelry business all his life, joining the jewelry store in 1974. Schoenborn’s Jewelry has been an anchor store on Fremont Street in Kiel since 1945 and has provided generations of families with jewelry, clocks, watches, and gifts, and that tradition continues today with Bob Schoenborn’s Jewelry.
As a master jeweler, clock and watch repairman, Bob has been restoring customer’s rings, clocks and watches, and other jewelry items for the past 38 years. All work is done right in the store, which is something not all jewelry stores can offer. Customers can feel comfortable that their jewelry will be done correctly and never leaves the store.
Do you have a drawer full of jewelry that you don’t wear any more? We can help you by buying your old, unwanted gold and diamond jewelry, and you will be paid the fair market price for that day. Or you can trade it in towards the purchase of a new piece of jewelry. Appraisals are also available on all jewelry items whether they have been purchased with us or not and all appraisals are done in store.
