In 1977, Jim opened Cardinal Jewelers with the desire to be a small town jeweler. Over the years, Pleasanton has grown up, but Jim and his assistant Cheri Funk have kept the small town friendliness and service. Cardinal Jewelers is not an ordinary jewelry store. They specialize in the unique and unusual gemstones that you can't find at your typical jewelry store. Come in and see for yourself at our new location. This store is a great resource for unique gifts for all. It specializes in quality products at affordable prices. You can find a wide variety of candles and personal hand creams and lotions.
