Such is the story behind Royal Jewelers. Dating back to 1948, their mission to put customers above all else remains at the fore today. This focus on the customer experience in combination with highly desirable designer jewelry make Royal deserving of its endless awards. For decades the dealer has been praised by Boston, Lustre, and Northshore magazines for having the finest jewelry, gems, and timepieces in New England. What has become known as the ���Royal Experience��� includes the making of special memories that start with their distinguished team.

With precious pieces at the heart of their endeavors to please, Royal���s professionals take their time and handle all stages of choosing with utmost care. A highly educated sales department, boutique-style shopping, and the ���world���s prettiest jewelry��� make Royal Jewelers a perfect cut above the rest.

She follows contemporary trends with the use of textures and textiles; lace, crystal pendants, and organza are used to enhance d��cor artistry.

That is what led to the opening (and ultimate success) of Eat Cake! With heart and award-winning artistic talent, Larson and her longtime staff find inspiration in their work. From her Newburyport ovens come exclusively designed confectionary creations meant to put smiles on faces. Using specialty ingredients, Eat Cake! crafts imaginative themes and masterful combinations, textures, and patterns. Accolades abound from those who have included Eat Cake!���s artwork as part of their hallmark occasions. A devoted following continues to spread the word (like so much frosting!), making Larson���s bakery one of the busiest around. With over 20 different combinations of cakes, fillings, and frostings (including seasonal favorites), Eat Cake! is a house of celebratory possibilities. For more information, call (978) 465-6057 or go to ���The trends that we follow tend to be those that we create. We are certainly not a factory when it comes to weddings or any other type of celebration. Our feel is that of a boutique.��� -Hilary Larson, Owner Nina Gaffny knows pastry. After 20 years in the business, nothing escapes her attention when it comes to making the ultimate sweet delights. It���s this long-time commitment to quality that has kept Fisichelli���s Pastry Shop, Inc. thriving for over 97 years. The third generation-owned bakery offers customers something special: a business with heart. Using the 100-year-old handmade oven her family has had since opening in 1925, pastry makers craft their signature strawberry shortcake and rum cakes, which keep customers returning time and again. But Gaffny recognizes wedding cakes are sacred affairs and call for delicacy. Most brides, she has learned, prefer plain and simple tastes. So, Fisichelli���s turns traditional flavors into highly personalized, memorably stylized, delightfully moist cakes that make brides, grooms, and (perhaps most importantly), brides��� mothers, smile big with each bite. Note: The original Lawrence shop has been recently joined by a sister shop in Andover.
