REEDS is Wilmington's Jeweler

Trusted Since 1946

Our founder Bill Zimmer and his wife Roberta bought a small jewelry store in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina and changed its name to REEDS Jewelers. After finding success, the Zimmer’s expanded to other cities in the Carolinas. By 1979, they controlled two dozen retail outlets while still running their original Wilmington store. As they built their business, they built their family, and all four children grew up working at REEDS. From the very first moment we opened our doors, the only thing that truly mattered was our guests. As our business has grown, we continue to uphold our founders' vision of a place where, once inside our doors, no one would ever be a stranger again.

Wilmington's Premier Jeweler

Today, REEDS' flagship store is located at Mayfaire Town Center, Wilmington's premier shopping destination.  This 5,000 square foot location showcases the finest jewelry and watch brands in the area. 

REEDS is committed to providing world-class service.  All of our associates receive extensive training from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).  In addition, they receive countless hours on training from our luxury brands.

Giving Back

Our founders, Bill and Roberta Zimmer, believed in giving back to their beloved community. Their commitment to philanthropy continues with the second and third generations of the Zimmer family. Charitable contributions and volunteerism are a cherished tradition and core component of REEDS Jewelers company culture.

REEDS supports the Zimmer Cancer Center at New Hanover Regional Medical Center, the Betty H. Cameron Women's and Children's Hospital, Thailian Hall Center for Performing Arts, Historic Wilmington Foundation, Wilmington Children's Museum, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and various other school and religious charities
