NEW BRITAIN - For 74 years, Polumboâ€™s Jewelers has offered customers quality jewelry and the type of personalized service at its 438 East St. store that has kept people coming back time and time again.
â€śWeâ€™ve been here since 1945,â€ť said Fred DiBattista, who took over the family business nine years ago after working there since 1964. â€śWeâ€™re the same people, in the same place. People trust us, thatâ€™s why they keep coming back. Our customers feel comfortable coming to our store.â€ť
The store has been named â€śBest of New Britainâ€ť eight years in a row, including this year.
Polumboâ€™s Jewelers is the last full-service jewelry store in the city, DiBattista said. The establishment still does watch and jewelry repair and engraving on the premises, in addition to selling a complete line of gold and silver jewelry, Seiko, Pulsar and Belair watches.
You can feel confident knowing that when you entrust the professionals at Polumboâ€™s Jewelers with all your jewelry repairs, youâ€™ll always receive expertly done repairs at affordable prices and completed in a timely manner, DiBattista said. â€śWe have been servicing your jewelry needs for 74 years. Your satisfaction is what drives us to be the very best jewelry store in the New Britain community,â€ť he added.
Polumboâ€™s also buys gold, sterling silver, platinum, coins, flatware and holloware. Customers can get jewelry for any special occasion, including weddings, anniversaries, Valentineâ€™s Day, retirements or any other occasion. Youâ€™ll appreciate the wide selection of premium jewelry and we have affordable prices with top notch service, DiBattista said.
â€śWe now have five new designer lines,â€ť DiBattista said. â€śGalatea sterling floral design jewelry, Nicole Barr fine enameled sterling jewelry, Frederic Duclos, a great sterling designer line. We are the exclusive dealer in Connecticut of the Sarayo Healing jewelry line, and we have a new design-your-own-wedding-ring system.â€ť
At one time there were 12 jewelry stores in town, DiBattista said. â€śBecause of our personalized service and excellent prices, we are still here to serve you,â€ť he said.
DiBattista has been in the family business for more than 55 years and is not ready to retire as of yet. His daughter, Dayna, now runs the business with him.
â€śDayna, Alivia and I are looking forward to 2019 and our seventy-fourth year,â€ť he said.
