Pagoda Fine Jewelry
As the name would suggest, Pagoda Fine Jewelry is set in a pagoda-style building that was built in the 1920s and is worth a visit simply because of how charming the store is. In 1992, it was transformed from an oil and grease station to a fine jewelry store, specializing in custom classic jewelry and one-of-a-kind stones. Award-winning designer, Catherine Laing, has been the store’s designer since its inception. (She recently moved her studio to a private sector, but you can still find many of her pieces at the Pagoda). Gemologist Paula Luba joined Catherine in 1998 and is the current owner. You can expect unique premier Wisconsin jewelry, suitable for a variety of tastes and budgets.
