Three Things About Abbott Taylor Jewelers

1. Abbott Taylor Jewelers is a family-owned business and in the thirty-five years I have known Abby, every family member, with the exception of their 10 year old grandson, has worked there at one time or another. Family matters to them above all else.
2.
You will find no dirty gold at Abbott Taylor jewelers. Abby has been purchasing recycled “green” gold since the 1980s and my only regret is that I am not wearing more of it!
3.
They walk the walk of giving back. I can’t remember the last time I went to a charitable event that had a silent auction and didn’t see a donation from Abby. Both Abby and Martha serve on Boards, attend local charity events, and support all things green and beautiful.
