Our History

Fine Jewelers for over a hundred years

Our great-grandfather started his business in 1910 in downtown Boston after serving as head watchmaker at a large jewelry store. Through the next 100+ years his son, grandson and now his great-grandsons and great-granddaughter proudly keep his tradition of honesty, quality work, respect and real values for customers who in many cases turn out to become friends.

During the years we have made some very interesting pieces but probably none more notable than the 1912 Boston Red Sox World Series Watch Fob, comparable to today’s World Series ring.

After many years, Joyce & Gendreau Jewelers moved to Quincy, MA and remains the family-owned and operated business our customers know and trust. In 1992, the Gendreau family bought a local jewelry business, Joyce Jewelers. Although the owner at the time was reluctant to sell the business, the Gendreau family could be relied upon for providing customers with great value and quality jewelry.

After many years, Joyce & Gendreau Jewelers remains as the family-owned and operated business our customers know and trust. Any of our pieces can be personally customized to your shape and style.
