Adlers Jewelers has Expanded to a Larger Space in Downtown Westfield with a New Designer Bridal Boutique

Adlers Jewelers has Expanded to a Larger Space in Downtown Westfield with a New Designer Bridal Boutique

After 27 years at the same location in Downtown Westfield, Adlers Jewelers has moved next door to 217 North Ave., expanding to double its square footage. With business growing, owners Andrew and Jeffrey Arkin thought the time was right to make the move. A grand re-opening celebration was held on June 3, 2017.

“Our bridal business has grown in the last 5 years and we needed more space for a private diamond showing area,“ said owner Jeffrey Arkin. “We designed a special diamond table to show the diamonds with special light. We also created a private room and comfortable sitting area for customers.”

Adlers always carried the top bridal designers including Tacori, Hearts On Fire, Verragio, A. Jaffe, Simon G. and eight other smaller boutique designers. Now they have a great new space in which to present them to future brides and grooms. Included in the new space are showcases for men’s wedding bands, which Adlers never had space for in the past.

New Boutique Workshop in Westfield Brings Out Anyone’s Inner Artist

New Boutique Workshop in Westfield Brings Out Anyone’s Inner Artist

Westfield, NJ residents now have a new way to express their passion for DIY design and styling with the opening of AR Workshop at 226 North Avenue West.   An extension of the popular NC-based design company Anders Ruff, AR Workshop is a  hands-on boutique studio and store where visitors can create their own handmade,  mixed-media pieces – everything from framed and plank wood signs, to canvas wall  hangings, to chalkboard art, pillows, décor and more. And it all takes place in guided workshop sessions that allow customers’ creative juices to flow, while still ensuring consistent, high-end results.

Taking the trend of creative, interactive parties (think of the popular “wine and painting” studios) to a fun new level, AR Workshop Westfield lets visitors work from customizable patterns and templates that can fit virtually any taste or style. As a result, no two pieces  – or projects – are the same. But the approach enables anyone to produce beautiful,  “Pinterest-worthy” artworks they can be proud of. The environment itself is also designed to inspire and delight – with a warm, welcoming  atmosphere that feels almost more like a lounge than an arts and crafts studio.

Accommodating everyone from individuals and couples, to larger groups and parties and even corporate events, AR Workshop Westfield is a place where inspiration and instruction meet – with a fun, fresh DIY flair. To learn more, visit  www.ARWorkshop.com/westfield
