Athens’ Oldest Locally Owned Jeweler
Spencer’s Jewelers is a family run jeweler founded in 1944.

We constantly strive to stay in the forefront of styles and listen to our customers’ needs and requests. We have always been committed to quality, exceptional value and unmatched personal customer service. As your hometown jeweler we want to exceed our customers’ expectations every time you shop with us for that special occasion.
