Upcoming Events at Topper Jewelers

Mayling Shu Appreciation Day

Saturday, April 28th 10:00AM to 5:30PM

Mayling Shu, our store manager at Topper Jewelers since the late 1980s, will be retiring in May. To recognize her time and many contributions over the last three decades, we are holding an event to give all the friends she has made at Topper over the years a chance to celebrate with her. We still hope to have Mayling at special events, but this will be a great time to visit Mayling and wish her luck in her next chapter.
