Arnoldshistory1Anniversary StaffAs Pasadena's oldest family-owned jewelry store, we are so pleased to be serving another generation of customers in the Pasadena area.

Our founder C.O. Arnold opened his first store in Ottumwa, Iowa near the Des Moines River in 1890, selling jewelry and musical instruments from a two-story building pictured below. [1]

He moved his family and business to Pasadena, California around 1910, setting up shop in a storefront near the present-day Mi Piace Italian restaurant in the Old Town district, pictured below circa 1918 - note the Model T cars parked in front! [2]

Arnoldshistory2OldstoreAs the center of business activity in Pasadena moved eastward, the store was relocated in 1935 to a new location on East Colorado, near our famous City Hall. Arnold's Fine Jewelry is still an important part of downtown Pasadena. Today, we are located in the Colonnade at 350 South Lake Avenue, across the street from Macy's.

We invite you to be a part of our second century - experience Arnold's today.
