History

At Withrow Jewelers we are a family-oriented, neighborhood jewelry store owned and operated by Robert (myself) and Jill Withrow. We have been serving the Marietta since 1978.

Growing up, my father taught me to be hands-on and detail oriented. This has given me a sense of quality in the things with which I work. Before I became a master jeweler, I completed an apprenticeship in yacht building from which I developed a passion for sculpting. I then became fascinated with designing jewelry and mounting stones to create unique pieces that allow people to share cherished memories for generations.

In the beginning, I gained my experience doing work for many different jewelers in the Atlanta area and studying under many of the country’s most accomplished bench jewelers and designers.

In 1985, I graduated from The Holland School for Jewelers and soon after, opened my first store with my father in my home town of Marietta. We operated in the Kroger shopping center at Parkaire Landing for 21 years. In September of 2007, we moved our store to our current location in the Publix Shopping Center about one mile north on Johnson Ferry Road, staying in the same area that we have come to know and love.

Jill Withrow, my wife, is a graduate of Gem City College in Quincy, Illinois where many of Americas finest bench jewelers have achieved degrees in various aspects of the jewelry industry. She has been actively involved in jewelry sales and management since 1989.

Pat Withrow, my father, is a 1986 Graduate of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). For over ten years, Pat was a well known supplier for retail jewelers in the Southeastern region of the United States, providing top quality colored stones, diamonds, and pearls. Dad has since partially retired but remains on board as our Senior Gemologist and business consultant. He loves to hang out in the store, occasionally talking to those who walk through our door about the things he enjoys in life the most: traveling, gems and jewelry, fine wines and cigars.

We also have two extremely helpful and friendly sales associates, Laura and Kira. My youngest daughter, Paige, also pops in occasionally to help out! They are all very experienced in the jewelry industry and are here to help you with any of your jewelry needs.

Here at Withrow Jewelers, we strongly believe that you will walk in as a customer and you leave as family. So please come in and let us help you custom design a piece for your loved one.

Warmest Regards,

Robert Withrow
