Its hard to believe that onlyfive short years ago, our beloved leader, Marion Halfacre, passed away so suddenly.The community support for Traditional Jewelers and the Halfacre family during these years hasbeen tremendous, and we thank you so very much.

    Traditional Jewelers has continued to offer personable, professional service and represent thetop jewelry and watch brands in the world. It is our pledge to all of you to continue thatexperience for years to come.

    Over the past year, we have been in discussions with another family-owned business fromDenver, Colorado, Hyde Park Jewelers, and as these discussions were concluded on July 31,2012, Traditional Jewelers is now under the ownership of Michael and Shereen Pollak. ThePollaks have stores in Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and now at Fashion Island in Newport

    Beach.

    Traditional Jewelers will continue to uphold our highstandards of customer service and of the collectionswe represent. We believe the joining of strengths ofthese two well-established, community-focusedcompanies will only serve to make your experienceat Traditional Jewelers even better.
