Pretty soon it will be inescapable, everywhere you look you’ll see the color red and everything you hear will be laced with talk about love. Valentine’s Day is coming! There will be countless offers for flowers, candies, and teddy bears but it’s quite possible that none of those things, on their own, will come close to the gift you’re looking to give. If the person you’re getting the Valentine’s gift for is so special, why not get a gift to match? (more…)

The decision on what type of engagement ring to get usually doesn’t come easily. Guys, you’re not alone when it comes to stressing out over this. You want it to reflect the love you share. Her excitement can be like throwing gasoline onto the fire of anticipation; you really want to get this right! You two have already traveled so far together and this is a celebration of the miles behind and the wonderful road ahead. (more…)
Just around the bend: opening day for public swimming pools. As you’re digging out your swimsuits and pool noodles, or jaunting off to Target to get the kids a new pair of flip-flops, there’s one swim-season to-do item you might not even have on your list. It could be one of the most important ones of all. (more…)
Do you remove your rings when cleaning? How about when swimming? We were reminded this earlier in February that many people aren’t aware of the damage bleach and chlorine can cause to gold. Both cause a chemical reaction that disintegrates the alloys in the jewelry over time. (Nearly all gold jewelry is alloyed, because pure gold is too soft on its own.)
Almost everyone thinks of Christmas or New Years as the best dates to have that diamond engagement ring ready and propose to the person of your dreams; the season is filled with happiness and fond memories that it only seems fitting to add another fantastic memory to that time of the year. But often forgotten is the Thanksgiving proposal. (more…)
For 80 years, Goodman’s Jewelers has been serving our friends and neighbors in Madison. When Irwin and Bob Goodman opened in 1933, they set out to offer the best jewelry at affordable prices from people you could trust. The store has remained a fixture on State Street, in its original location since Irwin visited Madison for a track event and noticed the store was for sale.
In 1998, I bought the store from the Goodman’s. I started working here in 1983 as part of the sales team and have never had a desire to leave. I wanted to continue the Goodman’s tradition of creating timeless jewelry that would last forever and create memories that could never be taken away. Just like the Goodman’s Brothers, I have a sense of civic pride for Madison and could never imagine a downtown State Street without the Goodman’s name being seen in the 200 block.
We are celebrating 80 years of serving Madison. And we want you to be part of this special celebration! Many of you have created memories with jewelry from Goodman’s or maybe your parents or grandparents did. We want to hear from you and share that story with everyone. Plus, we are giving away a fantastic Past, Present and Future Diamond Ring valued at $2,100.00 to the person whose story touches us all!
And join us Oct. 4th and 5th for the 80th Anniversary Celebration! We will be giving 8% of sales back to 3 local charities. Customers making purchases during the event will have the opportunity to pick the Goodman Community Center, Gio’s Garden, or Coaches vs Cancer WI!
