Video from the 1940’s/1950’s of the Schubach Jewelers store in Boise, Idaho, along with footage of grandpa William, my father Stan Sr, my brother and sister Stan Jr and Nanette, their mother Connie and Connie’s mother Nancy. Thanks Stan for digitizing the video!
Wow! Thank you so much for working with my sneaky husband on surprising me with the new diamond. I am still blown away! It’s absolutely beautiful! As I gaze down at my finger, I now have two generations of Schubachs sparkling on my finger. My original rings came from your dad. But, that was thirty years ago. J
My reset diamond is absolutely gorgeous- the new platinum setting is fantastic! And since my husband bought the original ring from Joe’s dad years ago, the family connection is a lovely sentimental bonus. GREAT service and GREAT price. Thanks!!
As many of you know, our home base is in Scottsdale, Arizona. Our jewelry store has a long, multi-generational history here. This year, we celebrate 100 years in business!
As an online business as well, we don’t really get to share much about our location, so we figured we’d give you a quick virtual tour.
If you want to stop by, please give us a call and we’ll be glad to show you our place.

First a little history, found on this great website, Insider Scottsdale:
Scottsdale is located centrally in the state of Arizona. Smack dab in the middle of the Sonoran Desert, with mountains ringing the city and giant saguaro cactus guarding those mountains.
Scottsdale was first incorporated in 1951 and as such is a relatively new city! And boy has it come a long way baby. Scottsdale really came into its own when the U.S. Conference of Mayors named Scottsdale as one of the nation’s “Most Livable Cities” in 1993. We have also been named “Number One Resort Community in America” and “A Fabulous Place to Retire”. We’ve been called “The Most Western Town” and in 2002, The Robb Report sited Scottsdale as “America’s Best Place to Live for golf”. And we have a number of chefs listed on the “Ten Best New Chefs in America” listed by Food and Wine.
We know it’s a great place to live, Scottsdale sparkles, everything is clean, manicured and landscaped…and you’ll see no billboards, which totally sets it apart from any other city you might visit! Our building height is regulated, so that no matter where you are, you have at least a peak of a mountain. The Spanish and Western Architecture is very appealing and of course Frank Lloyd Wright has left his mark on our fair city.
And now, some views of our fine city of Scottsdale:
