New logo, website convey “how we have evolved into a 21st century store.”

Greenwich St. Jewelers, formerly Greenwich Jewelers, has announced a rebranding of its name to celebrate its 40th anniversary in New York’s Financial District. Due to its origins on Greenwich Street, the store now includes "St." within its name and logo.

"Our parents, Carl and Milly Gandia, opened the store in 1976 and only changed the store’s location after the September 11th attacks, when structural damage to their building led to a move onto nearby Trinity Place," says Jennifer Gandia, who is now the co-owner of the store, along with her sister, Christina Gandia Gambale. "The new name honors our roots as a downtown New York City retail brand. But the rebranding also conveys how we have evolved into a 21st century store."

In addition to the name change, the sisters worked with New York City branding agency, Established, to create a new Greenwich St. Jewelers logo with a chiseled, artisanal look. Along with the new logo, Greenwich St. Jewelers has adopted a custom dark-blue brand color and also redesigned its website. The new colors and logo will appear in-store, online, and on the business’s new boxes and bags.

"We’ve learned what web surfing consumers want, and what drives them crazy, and we’ve committed to offering them a simple and straightforward shopping experience online, which reflects current best practices," says Christina Gandia Gambale.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
