About Higashi

Higashi Jewelry & Eyewear is anything but your typical jewelry store! You will enjoy shopping in our casual and friendly store, and you will be so surprised by our incredible selection of fine and fashion jewelry, watches, and very fun accessories.

I never imagined I would own a jewelry store...but after moving to Central PA from Tokyo, where I had lived with my family for five years, it seemed like the perfect way to use my expertise in pearls and my love for jewelry and design. So, over 11 years later, Higashi has expanded to three times it's original size and I am still having fun! (By the way, Higashi means East in Japanese!)

I designed Higashi as an alternative to the big chain stores. I purposely selected the shops above the West Shore Farmer's Market for our unique store. We are anything but stuffy and intimidating...there is no dress code at the farmer's market, and everyone feels comfortable there.

I have the most fabulous staff you could ever imagine. They are knowledgeable, helpful, and truly enjoy helping you find just what you are looking for. Whether it is a diamond pendant, an engagement ring, or a fun fashion piece, we truly have something for every taste and budget.

Searching for the latest in jewelry and pearls gives me a great excuse to visit Japan, Hong Kong, Brazil, and Israel, as well as many jewelry shows around the US. I love looking for the next trend, or new designer...which is one reason I created Higashi Eyewear.

Eyewear is the ultimate fashion accessory. I wear glasses and I had found it difficult to find great eyewear that I looked good in and was fashionable. I am so proud of what we have created...the best selection of sunglasses, prescription frames, and superior lenses in Central PA!

I invite you to visit Higashi. We would love to help you find that perfect piece of jewelry, or assist you in selecting your next pair of fabulous eyewear.

I know you will love what you find!
