Main Street Jeweler Opens in Federal Hill

| December 23, 2021 | 0 Comments

Longtime jeweler Tarek Ahmed has opened Main Street Jeweler at 1129 Light St. in Federal Hill. The storefront has been vacant in recent years.

Ahmed owned 5th Avenue Jewelers in Downtown for 23 years before closing prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. He has also owned two other jewelry stores in the Baltimore area.

Ahmed said he was looking to open a new store in a safe location near Downtown. He closed the Downtown location due to issues with crime and theft. He is excited to now be in Federal Hill and be a part of the South Baltimore community.

Main Street Jeweler sells diamond jewelry, gold jewelry, silver jewelry, pearl jewelry, engagement rings, earrings, and necklaces. Brands at Main Street Jeweler include Tiffany and Pandora.

Jewelry repair is a big part of Ahmed’s business and he is able to fix high-end watches such as Rolex and Brighton. Main Street Jeweler also buys gold, silver, coins, diamonds, and watches from customers.

The store is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 6pm.
