Family Jewelry Business Finds Value in Customer Service

Published in IndependentNEPA Magazine

Stanley and Rose Wateski established Rainbow Jewelers in the 1970s, selling jewelry at open-air venues such as area fairs and festivals. At that time, its specialty was turquoise jewelry, a popular fashion of the day for everyone from kids to grandparents. The Wateskis purchased their merchandise directly from manufacturers and Native American reservations. As the popularity of their inventory grew into the mid 80s, the couple– who is from the area– inevitably opened a shop in Swoyersville.

Rainbow Jewelers moved into its current location in 1998, setting up shop on one of the busiest corners on Wyoming Avenue.

As luck would have it, the decision to move there was a smart business move. The family is quick to agree that it is a “great location.”

It's Not Easy Being Green

When your finger turns green from your ring, go to Rainbow Jewelers in Kingston PAIt happens to the best of us- you get a brand new ring, wear it for a few hours, and when you take it off you notice the skin on your finger has turned an unattractive shade of green.

Why do certain rings leave behind a green stain on the skin? You may have heard that this is the result of wearing cheap jewelry. Although this may be true in some cases, there are several factors that need to be weighed into the equation before you go jumping to any conclusions. 


A Rainbow of Gold at Rainbow Jewelers in Kingston PAA Rainbow of Gold

Standard silver and gold jewelry will always be treasured, but jewelry-wearers are expanding their interest to include colored metals, especially when it comes to gold. Because gold is such a soft metal, it is mixed with other metals for added strength. The metals (often silver and copper) are added in small amounts, so the yellow color is not affected. Gold “colors” are achieved by mixing enough metals with the yellow gold until a different hue is reached.

Jewelry Tree vs. Jewelry Box

Learn to store your jewelry the right way from the experts at Rainbow Jewelers in Kingston, PA.Where do you keep your jewelry? While jewelry boxes may be the most traditional answer, many people have shifted to a more modern look by hanging jewelry on the elegant branches of a jewelry tree.

Using a jewelry tree keeps your favorite pieces easily accessible and organized, not to mention beautifully displayed. While this method of jewelry storing is aesthetically pleasing and certainly more convenient, be careful that you aren’t damaging your most precious and valued pieces. Leaving all your precious metals out exposes them to temperature changes and light rays that may cause tarnishing.
The downside to keeping everything in a jewelry box is that often times necklaces and bracelets tangle, earrings separate, and beloved pieces are lost and forgotten.
