Project Description

The newest retail showplace for one of Iowa's oldest jewelers is in West Glen Town Center in West Des Moines. The 19,749 square foot store opens into a well-appointed retail showroom, featuring custom showcases and millwork, special display lighting, and a grand entrance runway of Italian tile and etched granite. The building also houses space for offices, watch repair, and jewelry fabrication, polishing, and repair. A private balcony and secure outdoor patio for viewing jewels in natural light complete the building. The striking exterior features cranberry Norman brick and vein-cut Anamosa limestone.
