E.K.A. Jewelers Celebrates Over 2 Decades in Business

Local shop owner Bob Addonizio is celebrating the 21st anniversary of E.K.A. Jewelers in Milford this year. Opening its doors originally in downtown Milford, on N. Walnut Street, E.K.A. Jewelers has moved twice always keeping its home in Milford. In 2004 Bob moved the business to Airpark Plaza on N. Dupont Highway where it currently stands.

At the young age of 18, Mr. Addonizio worked as a bench jeweler, specializing in creating and repairing jewelry for larger companies. In the 1980’s his career in the United States Air Force brought him to Dover, Delaware where he started repairing jewelry for companies such as Boscov’s and Sears. After working for bigger companies for ten years, Bob decided to make the move into retail and open his first private business in 1990 on the main street of downtown Milford.

“I saw what the big chains were doing and I decided I needed to make a change,” commented Bob. “I saw the quality of a lot of jewelers decline, especially the big chains.”

The shop contains an extensive collection of jewelry that is designed or chosen by Bob himself. Several yearly trips to Belgium have produced a wide range of unique diamond jewelry. E.K.A. Jewelers offers a complete in-house operation where Bob and his staff can make exact modifications to the specific needs of his customers. They offer appraisals, jewelry repair, custom design, pearl restringing, watch repair, eye glass repair and engraving.

“Jewelry will always be a hands-on business,” stated Mr. Addonizio. “You need to be able to focus on each item to ensure its quality.

Mr. Addonizio looks forward to the future of the business and what the next several  years will bring. With three of his children working for the company, E.K.A. Jewelers has evolved from a private venture to a family legacy.  For more information on E.K.A. Jewelers visit www.ekajewelers.com or visit the store at 935 North Dupont Highway in Milford.
