Paul Medawar Fine Jewelry - Family Owned and Operated since 1920

About Us

Our History

“We truly care about our customers and they care about us. We also care about the community around us and continue to serve it.”

In 1920 Medawar senior opened up a watch and clock sales and repair center in Lebanon.  His knowledge, good business sense, and passion for his work led him to great success.  As his business continued to grow, he and his five sons expanded the operation to include jewelry repair and sales.

Paul Medawar, one of the five sons, began learning about watches, clocks and jewelry at a very early age.  By the age of seventeen Paul was working as a watch and clock repair technician at his father's shop.  At the age of eighteen, Paul expanded his knowledge by going to Switzerland and becoming certified in fine watch repair.

In 1969, Paul came to the U.S. and opened a small shop called Medawar Watch Repair. Five years later, the first Medawar Jewelry retail store was established in Los Angeles, CA. Today, the Medawar family of fine jewelers has over ten stores in Michigan and one in California.

Paul Medawar Fine Jewelry is located in Grand Rapids, MI.  We pride ourselves on knowledge, quality and customer service.  Today, Paul continues to train his children, Daniel and David, just as his father trained him.  We are a third-generation family-owned and -operated business, and we continue to 
passionately serve our customers.
Chakib Medawar (1920) - Paul's father and the founder of the Medawar business.
