After many years of providing a bit of sparkle in the lives of Wellington residents, Designer’s Touch Jewelry has opened a new location with an eye on the future.
A true Florida native, Adam Yorke is the third generation in the jewelry business at Designer’s Touch. With roots going back to the Broward area in the 1980s, the firm started by his grandparents has had a convenient Wellington location since 2006. Now, it’s even more convenient with a new location at 2891 S. State Road 7, Suite 120, near Trader Joe’s in Wellington.
“My grandparents and parents have run the store, and now I am a part of it,” Yorke explained. “We’ve been a true family business for more than 35 years. Our business was established and built on trust and long-term relationships. Although we may have grown and developed into a bigger store in a nicer shopping center, we will always have that feeling of family and true personal care and attention to any jewelry want or need.”
Yorke is excited about the store’s recent move a few blocks down SR 7.
“Our new, more central, stand-alone location is near Trader Joe’s and Starbucks,” he said. “It’s a nicer place, a more modern venue, with updated tiles and nice lighting. While near the old location, it seems like a happier plaza environment that is more convenient for our existing customers and those who will become customers in the future.”
That clientele will find a great jeweler that does much more than just sell high-quality pieces. Designer’s Touch Jewelry uses artistry and technical know-how to design and create beautiful items.
With impeccable workmanship and a wide range of services, including jewelry cleaning and polishing, white gold dipping, heirloom repair and updating, they even carry the top brands for men’s and women’s watches, such as Michele, Movado, Citizen and more.
The store works with jewelry of all types and materials, including platinum, gold, white gold, silver and stainless steel, and with precious stones, such diamonds, gemstones and pearls.
“As for custom work, we can make anything, and it’s done by hand,” Yorke said. “Our customers can see the wax and mold of their piece before it’s created, and they are really made to be part of the process. We can use a customer’s gold and stones to turn old, rarely worn pieces into new and modern masterpieces.”
In addition to the custom work that Designer’s Touch is known for, the store has a reputation as the go-to experts for simple to intricate repairs.
“Our repairs are done in house. We have two expert jewelers on premise,” Yorke explained. “We make sure that the work is concise and quick, and that each customer is satisfied with the piece before walking away. One of the big benefits of this is having one of the jewelers be able to work hand-and-hand with a customer if needed, such as an intricate ring sizing or something along those lines.”
One thing Yorke is especially proud of is that his family’s work has been on hand in the marriage of so many Wellington couples.
“We truly have a variety of just about everything, but if I had to specify something we specialize in, it would probably be bridal jewelry,” Yorke said. “We truly have such a wide variety of diamonds and settings that you won’t really see anywhere else locally.”
When not working, Yorke helps teach a drumline at Palm Beach Central High School, and his mother is an avid painter who enjoys riding horses, so the Wellington community is a great home for them and their business.
“Since being here, it’s like we’ve grown a new family because Wellington is such a tightly knit community,” Yorke said. “Everyone seems to look after each other, and growing our business here, we’ve been able to see so much of that first hand and are happy to be able to serve the Wellington family and will continue to do so for years to come.”
