Joe and Denise Jacobs will open One Stop Jewelry Shop at 7 E. Oak Ridge Drive on June 1.

“I’ve been doing jewelry for 25 years,” Joe Jacobs said Monday.

He’s worked at other stores and been in business for himself. Most recently, he said, he and Denise operated out of their home in Spring Mills, W.Va.

“We had a studio in our basement,” he said.

He said they had been looking for a location for a while and decided on the spot on Oak Ridge Drive just east of South Potomac Street. It’s a high-traffic area, he said.

As for the timing, Jacobs said birthdays, engagements, weddings, anniversaries and other memorable events take place, regardless of the COVID-19 pandemic.
