Delia Alvarado found her passion for jewelry in 1993 when she began selling fine jewelry door to door. In 1994, Delia moved her jewelry sales to a local flea market in Yadkinville, NC. Finally, in 1996, Delia was able to open Alvarado Jewelry in a stand-alone building in Winston-Salem. A year later, she moved a few blocks down the road to where the store stills stands today.
As jewelry sales and Delia’s passion to help others continued to grow, it became obvious that there were many other services she could provide to make her customers’ lives easier. In 2000, Alvarado Jewelry began providing remittances, gold pawn and buy, and gold repair services. By 2005, the Bill Payment and Check Cashing Centers were up and running.
While Alvarado Jewelry offers many services currently, Delia’s finds the most joy in helping a customer find just the right piece of jewelry for themselves or for a gift, but the ultimate is helping a young couple find the perfect engagement ring!
The values of Alvarado Jewelry grew from the traditions of the Mexican culture and the business’ humble beginnings. The devotion to community is evident in the employees and customers who have become family over the past 25 years.
The wide variety of services offered speaks to the Mexican heritage of helping others to attain financial stability and emotional well being.
