Our History

Portsmouth NH Market Square Jewelers

Market Square Jewelers first opened its doors in 1984 on Inn Street in Newburyport Massachusetts.  Now with four brick and mortar stores in Newburyport, MA, Portsmouth, NH, Portland, ME and Dover, NH we serve small local communities with fine antiques and rare gemstones, quality jewelry repair and a place to sell and trade gold, silver and diamonds.  

A two generation company, Peter and Elizabeth, work together daily to source, design, restore and recreate fine jewelry for our customers.  We are committed to the quality and longevity of our inventory, traveling to provide you with the widest array of rare gemstones, serving you with affordable jewelry repair, and being a positive part of the small communities that we live and work in.  

We are especially thankful of our national and global customers who have allowed our passion for jewelry to reach far beyond these four communities.  We have world map outside of our office space with small pins for all of the places we have shipped.  It is fun for us to see and hear from you, our customers from all over the world!  Thank you!
