About Us – Touchstone Jewelers

About Touchstone Jewelers

Over time the word “touchstone” has come to be used as a term to denote a standard, a measure of excellence.

Locally owned and operated for over 30 years, Touchstone Jewelers was founded in 1987 with the intent of becoming the jewelry store by which all other jewelers are measured, hence the name “Touchstone.”

At Touchstone Jewelers, you will find friendly associates who have, in most cases, been in the fine jewelry business for over half of their lives. We rely on our knowledge and experience and our passion for diamonds and gemstones rather than high-pressure sales tactics. We are proud of our jewelry and want you to be proud to present or wear it!

It was our mission in 1987, and it is still our mission today, to bring the Tri-Cities the very best in quality, price, and service.

Stop in and see us in Marineland Plaza!
