Merchant Spotlight: A.D.L. Jewelers

If you are looking for a one-stop shop to buy or sell jewelry, antique art and collectibles, gold and silver coins or fix your beloved quality watch, A.D.L. Jewelers is the place for you. Nestled on 39-38 Queens Boulevard - just a five minute walk from Lowery Plaza (40th Street Station) - owner Artur Dabakarov also provides engraving and soldering service for jewelry.

 

The business grew out of Artur's determination and passion to become a jeweler. "When I was twenty-five years old, I enjoyed learning about jewelers like Cartier and Rolex, and I told myself I will one day become one," Artur reflects. Since then, he has gained twenty years of experience in the industry, starting from his home country of Russia and eventually immigrating to the United States in 2006. In New York, he quickly became employed by Ambramovs Jewelry in Manhattan's Diamond District, where he worked for five years.

 

Artur opened A.D.L. Jewelers, when a friend - who lived in Sunnyside - alerted him of a storefront for rent in the neighborhood; attracted by the area's small town character, accessibility, and friendliness, he took the chance. With the support of loyal customers and their word-of-mouth, the shop is celebrating its fourth year in business. "He [Artur] is honest, as a person and business owner, which is reflected in the prices for his products and services," long-time supporter Sophia Hwang says. "He really relies on word-of-mouth and locals to stay in business." Browsing through the carefully selected jewelry on display at the shop and seeing the friendly customer service, we can definitely see why A.D.L. Jewelers is standing strong.

 

A.D.L. Jewelers offers 35% off a purchase of $100 or more when you show your Shop Sunnyside rewards card! The store hours is: Monday-Thursday, 11 AM - 6 PM; Friday, 10 AM - 4 PM; Saturday, by appointment; Sunday, closed.
