Panowicz Jewelers Community Story

#GRGCommunityWe were lucky enough to be able to sit down with Leslie Panowicz, the owner of Panowicz Jewelers in downtown Olympia for a Community Story. Leslie was a great host and very informative and exciting to interview. We loved getting the scoop on Panowicz Jewelers‚Äô long history in the area, their quality and their commitment to the Olympia community.

Rich History

Panowicz Jewelers just celebrated their 70th year in Olympia just last year, and initially opened their doors in 1948, right after World War II. Leslie’s great grandfather was the original founder and Panowicz was initially a watch shop, just a couple hundred square feet. Panowicz has been family owned all of these years and Leslie is the third generation to own and operate the family business.

Commitment to Quality

Panowicz Jewelers has always had a commitment to quality and in order to complete that quality, there are some special steps that have to be taken. First, Panowicz keeps two professional goldsmiths on staff at all times. Second, they offer complimentary jewelry inspections and cleanings at your convenience. Finally, Panowicz carries world renowned brands such as Hearts on Fire, Roberto Coin Simon G and Fredrique Constant.

A Part of the Community

Because Panowicz Jewelers has been part of the Olympia community for such a long time, they give back in many charitable ways. Panowicz supports local arts and artists in many ways. They also donate and do fund raisers for multiple different non-profits that help children and children's education.

“Working and now running the family store is the best thing in the world, really”

Whether you’re down at the farmer’s market with your family, or just driving past, feel free to stop into Panowicz Jewelers and take a look around.
