IMPULSE to make calculated move to Newton
IMPULSE by Adamas Fine Jewelry is moving to 22 Lincoln Street in Newton Highlands to merge with its original counterpart, Adamas Fine Jewelry at their newly renovated two-story space. So that means it’s time to shop for bargains as the Linden Square store sells off its inventory at 40 – 60% off everything. IMPULSE owner Veronica Sagherian said, “We have truly enjoyed being a part of the Wellesley business community, and hope that our loyal clientele will find us easily less than five miles down the road. This is a great move for IMPULSE as it will allow us to offer the same beautiful jewelry brands with the added benefit of bespoke jewelry creations, custom design, and special services that Adamas Fine Jewelry has been offering its clientele for over 22 years.”
