Where Did it All Start?
From Naples, Italy in 1898, the Corbo Family has been selling and servicing fine jewelry for their many friends and customers. At the turn of the century Alfonso Corbo took his wife and eight children from their home in Naples to America, settling in Newark NJ. A watchmaker by trade, Alfonso went door-to-door selling his wares and skills to start the tradition of Corbo Jewelers in America.
Six of Alfonso's eight children continued the tradition. Sons Mike, Dick, and Nick chose different parts of Bergen, Passaic, and Essex counties- going door-to-door and selling their wares and making friends along the way. In 1918 the daughters; Julia, Mae, and Pep opened the first store on Warren ST. in Newark, later moving to Bloomfield in 1945.
In 1950, Michael's son Alan joined Corbo Jewelers, and they opened their second store in Clifton. During the 60's and 70's, Alan's brothers, Tony and Mike Jr., came aboard and Corbo Jewelers continued to grow. Stores were opened in Paramus, Toms River, and Rockaway.
Since the 1970's, members of the fourth generation of the Corbo family joined the tradition. Alan's children, Stephen, Alan Jr., Michael, and Cathy came aboard. The great grandchildren of the founder have worked hard to continue the tradition of offering unmatched quality, value, and customer service to all their many friends and customers. Corbo Jewelers has continued to grow, opening stores in Rutherford, Gillette, Yonkers NY, Chester, and Old Bridge NJ.
For every Holiday and all those special occasions, the Corbo family is always well prepared, stocking all the latest fashions in gold, diamonds, and colored stones. We also have a large selection of brand name watches and gift ware.
Receiving a gift from Corbo Jewelers is a tradition for many generations of families throughout New Jersey and further.
Now, through you, the tradition continues...
