De’S Jewelers, “Where the Hudson Valley Gets Engaged”
Celebrating 70 Years of Excellence
Our Family History
De’S Jewelers is a family owned and operated business established in May of 1946 by Louis E. Santopadre and Joseph W. Doyle.
Lou “Tootie” and Joe worked together in the jewelry industry prior to WWII and upon returning from the service they decided to use their extensive experience and personal philosophy to establish De’S Jewelers.
They created a dynamic business whose foundation is based on exceptional personal service, and the finest quality jewelry at very competitive prices.
In 1970, Paul S. Mancarella joined the organization and Joe Doyle passed on his partnership to Paul in 1979. Paul’s brother Jack joined the business in 1978. Jack is an accomplished GIA (Gemological Institute of America ) trained jeweler working on premises to meet our customers needs.
In 1992 Lou’s partnership was officially passed on to his family; Linda Santopadre-Corliss, Kathy Santopadre-Fouhy, and Dennis Fouhy, who joined the organization in 1979.
Both families are committed to continuing that philosophy of the founders.
Exceptional jewelry and value with a rewarding customer experience where an owner is always present.
