Regency Jewelers celebrated its grand reopening at 1540 Altamont Avenue, Schenectady with a ribbon cutting hosted by The Chamber of Schenectady County on May 8, 2013. The ribbon cutting was sponsored by McNamee, Lochner, Titus & Williams, PC.
More than 20 years ago CEO Joseph Delefano and President Richard Poltorak worked together at the Golub Corporation and began their part-time job of learning the jewelry business. Gradually they acquired a love and have passion for selling jewelry, establishing Regency Jewelers in 1995.
“We wanted to update the store to make it a design center and implement a premium jewelry store,” said Poltorak. “Our new layout allows the customer to go from designing the piece on the computer to seeing the actual piece in hand.” The investment of $250,000 has made the design center at Regency the focal point for the business.
Regency is independently owned and operated and maintains a mission is of providing quality jewelry, excellent customer service and competitive pricing. The store carries jewelry ranging from traditional to contemporary and from fashion to urban lines.
The majority of the store inventory is designed and manufactured on-site. It also carries several designer jewelry lines, so a wide variety of styles are available for customers. The professional jewelry repair department is also located on-site and ensures the highest level of safety and quality.
Regency’s customer design center and manufacturing department makes use of the highest technological equipment available today. As always, Regency Jewelers continues to provide you with great ideas that shine.
In addition, Regency Jewelry now offers 3D printing, a fairly new technology which is the wave of the future in many industries. It utilizes a process of layering to build in different levels to give the exact three-dimensional models that appear on the screen.
Joseph and Richard both were raised in Schenectady County and wanted to locate their business in their home. They also knew that Altamont Avenue was a progressive business location with the highest car count in the County.
