Serving Spartanburg Since 1915
Our grandfather, Rufus, began his career in jewelry as a formally trained optician and horologist, fitting eye glasses and repairing watches for a local jeweler in Horry County, SC.
In 1915, a young Rufus D. Lewis moved from the Lowcountry of South Carolina to Clinton to begin what would become a 100 plus year family legacy of fine jewelry in the Upstate. In 1917, he dissolved his partnership with J.B. Frontis in Clinton and moved to Spartanburg. Not much is known of his first location beyond it’s location at 122 East Main St.
His second location in Spartanburg was at 146 East Main St. in a little store only 8 feet wide but furnished with the antique showcases that still grace our showroom today. His legacy of quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service continues today through his two grandsons.
We look forward to your visit!
