Dallas, TX - Bailey Banks & Biddle, the iconic fine jewelry store founded in 1832, is pleased to announce the opening of their 7th retail store location on the second level of the Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton, California, the East Bay area’s premier shopping center. This will mark the second opening of four new stores set to open across the country before the end of the year.
With premiere retail locations in major metropolitan cities and a robust ecommerce website, Bailey Banks & Biddle has developed an innovative new model as the first jewelry retailer to bridge the gap between online and in-store shopping. The new location features exclusive open diamond engagement ring cases in Bailey’s Design Studio which encourage customers to help themselves to try on rings in a relaxed, comfortable shopping environment. The Design Studio is the centerpiece of the retail stores and online website, allowing shoppers to customize engagement rings to their exact specifications and browse over 22,000 unique diamonds and hundreds of settings. The store will also showcase brand name fine jewelry such as A. Jaffe, Mikimoto, Ritani, Norman Silverman, Roberto Coin, Penny Preville, Lorenzo, Chad Allison and Memoire. Consistent with its heritage, all merchandise is created with high quality diamonds, gemstones, and precious metals, focusing on expert craftsmanship.
The General Manager of the new Stoneridge location, Doug Cline, is pleased to bring the new Bailey Banks & Biddle to the Pleasanton area. “We’re very excited to bring Bailey’s fine quality jewelry and engagement rings to the Pleasanton community. It’s great to be the newest store in Stoneridge Mall, the premier retail location of the East Bay area. Our sales professionals are eager to help couples design their unique custom engagement ring, as well as those looking for the perfect, fine jewelry gifts for the upcoming holiday season.”
