About Touchstone Jewelers

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

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”.

When original owners Mark Welsh and Sharon McAlmond retired in 2016, longtime friend, employee, and Gemologist Dennis Schoeneberg realized the need for the Touchstone legacy of offering exceptional customer service and quality jewelry at the best possible price to continue in the TriCities.

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