About Medawar Jewelers
The Medawar family of jewelers began in 1920 when Chakib Medawar opened a small watch and clock shop. Chakib then taught his children, who would later expand the business to include jewelry repair and sales. Now the third generation is taking over the business and expanding by leaps and bounds. “My father would sit with me like his father sat with him and taught me about watches and our business. But the lessons were more than just technical; I learned the importance of treating customers well and becoming someone they could trust with their precious heirlooms.
” -Ronny Medawar
What started with a one-room business in 1920 has expanded into a multi store legacy in Michigan and California. Our stores have become a standard for customer service and quality jewelry at affordable prices. Medawar Jewelers is a Direct Diamond Importer and gets their diamonds straight from the cutter, which allows them greater control over the quality and pricing of diamonds. Medawar Jewelers also offers diamond and gemstone jewelry, an in-house jeweler for custom design and repair work and specializes in watch and clock repair. House calls, a rarity in today’s world, are available for grandfather clock service.
