Moretti’s Fine Jewelry to close in San Antonio after 44 years – mySA

For more than four decades, Moretti’s Fine Jewelry has helped the San Antonio community celebrate its most meaningful moments. Now, after 44 years in business, Mike Moretti, the owner of Moretti’s Fine Jewelry, has announced his retirement and that the store will be closing its doors for good.

The jewelry store has been a staple in the San Antonio community since 1978. Moretti was 27 years old with big hopes, dreams, and grit to begin his legacy with just a small loan. From there, the shop quickly grew into what is today. 

A walk down memory lane shows that Moretti’s Fine Jewelry outgrew its original store at Cambridge Place in Alamo Heights in the 1980s and moved to North Star Mall. It was there that the store owner and his mother began working together to become one of the most recognized and respected fine jewelry stores in the country.

It wasn’t long until Moretti’s wife, Jill, joined the family business in 1994. In 2001, Moretti built his store in its present location off 281 North and San Pedro Avenue.
 
In an email to MySA, the Moretti family says they have loved every aspect of the jewelry business and serving the many customers. Moretti extended his sincerest gratitude in a statement to the community.

“It’s been a wonderful 44 years, and we did a tremendous amount of business during that time,” he says. “But what we’ll remember most are the many important relationships we cultivated over the years. Many of our clients have become some of our dearest friends and we certainly look forward to keeping those friendships alive as we move into the next chapter of our lives. Thank you all for making Moretti’s story a great one!”

To commemorate the store’s shining legacy, the Moretti’s will be hosting a special store closing sales event starting Thursday, November 10. During the event, customers will be able to browse an expansive selection of diamond jewelry, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and more while receiving up to 70% off across the entire inventory.

The family has not said what comes next, but are looking forward to the next chapter in their lives.
