"Northborough – Fernando and Andrea Fierimonte, owners of Anthony Andrew Jewelers in the Northborough Shopping Plaza, have brought their expertise and personalized service to their hometown of Northborough.

In September 2009, the couple expanded their business to include the Northborough store in addition to the store they have had in Newton Highlands since August 2000.

“We’ve lived in Northborough for six years and were thrilled to have the opportunity to open a store in our neighborhood,” Andrea said. “We are the only jeweler in Northborough and we have a convenient location with plenty of parking. Opening the Northborough store was perfect for us and our three sons, Anthony, 16, Andrew, 10, and Alec, 7. We love to support our community and be involved – we love everything about Northborough and we take pride in our town.”

Anthony Andrew Jewelers specializes in custom jewelry and repairs. Along with our own creations, we also offer popular designers like Breuning, Kimmeron, Wright and Lato and Cape Cod. Recently the Trollbead line was added. It’s well-known for its unique sterling-silver beads and large variety of murano glass which is all handmade. The Trollbead bracelet is a universal bracelet, as any other beads will fit it. We will purchase your unwanted gold, and we also have pearls, colored-stone pieces and estate jewelry.

Fernando is a graduate of the Gemological Institute of America and provides customers with expert appraisals on diamonds, estate and all other jewelry. He is a former manager of Goldstein Swank & Gordon. Fernando has 38 years of experience in the jewelry business.

“When I was 14, I began working after school at MC Jewel Company in Newtonville,” he said. “I helped out around the store, learned about jewelry and I found the different stones to be interesting. We had a watchmaker there and I learned everything about watches. Eventually, I began to work with customers and continued to work there through high school and went on to gemology school.”

Andrea has a business background and has been involved in the jewelry business for 15 years. The couple’s combination of knowledge, experience and attention to personalized service has served them well as their business has grown.

“Fernando is well-known in the industry for his vast knowledge and we have built a great reputation through our customers’ satisfaction and referrals,” Andrea said. “We’re not your average store. We are unique because of our product, as well as our service. We off er many one-of-a-kind custom pieces of jewelry and we do a lot of re-styling work, where we do something diff erent with a customer’s diamond or precious gem. We have wonderful customers and we do whatever we can to meet their needs.

The couple noted that their personalized service is what sets them apart, and is the cornerstone of their success.

“Many stores are closing, while we’re expanding,” Andrea said. “There are jewelers everywhere but we’re diff erent; we go above and beyond for our customers.”
