Wellesley Historical Society honors Anderson’s Jewelers family
The Anderson family, which has owned Anderson’s Jewelers in Wellesley since 1947, was the toast of Wellesley Historical Society’s Swing into Spring fundraiser this past week at Wellesley Country Club.
The family’s store, which sits at the intersection of Grove and Washington Streets, once the home of Seiler’s Restaurant, was opened by John Walter Anderson and has since been the home away from home for many members of the family. Vickie Anderson Mancini wrote in the event program that the family has adapted over time to various fashion trends from circle pins and charm bracelets to bold gold jewelry and chains inspired by the A-Team’s Mr. T back in the 1980s.
