Business Spotlight: J. Rankin Jewellers

Small businesses and the people who own and work in them are the heart of our Edmonds community. To keep our downtown thriving, it’s more critical than ever that we think local first.

In this new series, we will be highlighting independently-owned businesses, and learn more about the folks that make them run!

Meet Meg and John Rankin from J. Rankin Jewellers


What is your favorite part of your business?
Our customers, and celebrating their important lifetime milestones, becoming “part of the family”.

When did you start your business?

Why did you choose Edmonds for your business?
We live here!

What makes you stand out to your competitors/similar businesses?
Not your ordinary jewelry, it’s from all over the world. Also, our attention to detail and excellent customer service.

Why should people do business with you?
We have over 100 years of experience in the business between the 4 of us! And of course John, with his super outgoing (sometimes crazy) personality.

What are you currently doing differently during this time?
