Looking in the windows of Bob Schoenborn’s Jewelry in Kiel, it doesn’t appear much has changed over the years — but when you walk in the door, you will not only see new faces, but new merchandise as well. You will be greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable staff of jewelers as you enter a store filled with rich tradition.
Like his father and mother, Oscar and Edna, and his grandfather Matt, Bob has been working in the jewelry business all his life, joining the jewelry store in 1974. Schoenborn’s Jewelry has been an anchor store on Fremont Street in Kiel since 1945 and has provided generations of families with jewelry, clocks, watches, and gifts, and that tradition continues today with Bob Schoenborn’s Jewelry.
As a master jeweler, clock and watch repairman, Bob has been restoring customer’s rings, clocks and watches, and other jewelry items for the past 38 years. All work is done right in the store, which is something not all jewelry stores can offer. Customers can feel comfortable that their jewelry will be done correctly and never leaves the store.
At Bob Schoenborn’s Jewelry, we’ve expanded our selections of affordable sterling silver jewelry to include the Lorenzo line of sterling and gemstone pieces and added Marcasite pendants, Hot Diamonds, and Ed Levin.
We have over 300 styles of rings to choose from — engagement, wedding, anniversary, and gemstone rings. We also carry a large selection of loose diamonds to compliment your ring choices. We will take the time to educate our customers so you can feel confident in your purchase.
Bob Schoenborn’s Jewelry also has
a large selection of men’s and women’s quality watch styles from Citizen’s, Bulova, Accutron, Caravelle, and Timex. A full line of Howard Miller grandfather, mantel, and wall clocks, Black Forest Cuckoo clocks crafted of fine German quality, as well as Seiko Music ‘N Motion clocks.
Bob Schoenborn’s Jewelry doesn’t just carry jewelry and diamonds. We carry a wide selection of free-form glassware, including pieces from the Chuck Pritchard Collection, Chribska and Jana Valkova crystal, and jewelry from local artist Parrot Eyes Studio. Many other one of a kind gift items include — gold dipped roses, music boxes, Precious Moments, and baby and religious gifts for any occasion. Add-a-pearl necklaces are also great for any occasion, start with one or more and you will have a gift that continues for years to come.
According to Bob, “Our customers are the most important part of our business. You are not dependent on us, we are dependent on you. You are not an outsider in our business, you are a part of it. And you are doing us a favor by allowing us to be of service to you. To all of our customers from the past, present, and future, we say “Thank You” for allowing us to help you create new memories.”
The staff at Bob Schoenborn’s Jewelry is comprised of Bob, his wife Sue, Bob’s sister Janet, Missy Brandt, and Abbey
