The Govberg Legacy

The Govberg Jewelers legacy began in 1916 on South Street in Philadelphia, opened by Albert and Sam Govberg. Young watchmaker, and diamond expert, Albert Govberg continued on by opening a family-run specialty store along Philadelphia’s historic Jewelers Row in 1922. Nearly 100 years later, Govberg Jewelers is celebrated as a true Philadelphia icon, bringing exquisite timepieces, beautiful jewels and exceptional service to the people of a city rich in history and tradition. Under the dynamic leadership of Albert’s grandson Danny Govberg, who proudly works alongside his sons, Brian and Marc, this seasoned jeweler has garnered a reputation far beyond the Philadelphia City limits.

Govberg Jewelers underwent a tremendous transformation over the past four generations, and today the jeweler operates three exquisite locations – two in the heart of Philadelphia’s Center City, and the third in the neighboring town of Ardmore, adjacent to the Apple Store in the Suburban Square Shopping Center. The Govberg Jewelers sales associates across all locations are extensively trained in the realm of horology, and look forward to assisting you during your upcoming visit to one of our showrooms.

Govberg Jewelers’ collection of esteemed timepiece brands represents one of the largest selections of Swiss timepieces on the entire East Coast. The list of brands encompasses a full spectrum, representing all price points, and an incomparable assortment of styles and complications. A preview from this distinctive selection of brands can be viewed here.

While long recognized as a premier watch provider, Govberg Jewelers has greatly expanded its jewelry offerings in recent months. Styles by Mikimoto, Roberto Coin, and Charriol are currently available, as well as a stunning assortment of classic diamond designs from Govberg’s Signature Collection. Govberg Jewelers also boasts an enhanced bridal department, which we will continue to develop throughout the coming months.

Danny Govberg remarks, “We are truly grateful for the generations of Philadelphians who have marked milestones with a purchase from Govberg Jewelers. As we celebrate 90 years of company history this year, our foremost goal is to meet your needs in a streamlined and efficient manner. We greatly look forward to welcoming you into our home.”
