Bowers Jewelers Since 1946

La Jolla Landmark
Business Since 1946
Bowers Jewelers

Then Ron and Marg Bowers opened Bowers Jewelry on La Jolla’s Wall Street in 1946, they could never have known that their business would later become one of the longest standing retail landmarks in the community. But 65 years and a few blocks later in the heart of Girard Avenue, Bowers Jewelry, under the ownership of Larry and Sheila Combe is a thriving La Jolla business.

Bowers’ history is one of family tradition and loyalty. Larry’s mother Adele once worked as a designer for the store. Larry later joined her as an employee until he purchased the business in 1981. Since then, he and wife Sheila of 37 years, have been the go-to for La Jollans when it comes to fine jewelry, unique trinkets, jewelry repairs and exceptional, personalized service.

With an unparalleled selection, fine quality and real personality, the family feel at Bowers in contagious. Patrons are encouraged to pull up a chair while they marvel at the many unique necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings and time pieces on the showroom floor.

    My husband bought my engagement ring at Bowers, and even though we now live in the Bay Area when my rings needs repairing or replacement (It has a black pearl which when worn every day doesn't last forever) I send it back to Bowers. I trust them to do a great job and to treat with care, not based on its monetary value but it's sentimental value.
