Here is a little history, unknown to most people, about Ware Jewelers.
Ware Jewelers was opened by Lamar Ware in Auburn, Alabama, in 1946. Professor Lamar Ware, Lamar M. Ware, and Elizabeth Ware were the original owners. Four generations later, Ronnie Ware, Brock Ware, Dac Ware, and Tina Ware are excited to be celebrating Ware Jewelers’ 75th Anniversary! Back in 1946, Ware Jewelers was not just a jewelry store; they sold everything, from alarm clocks to pocket watches to diamond rings.
Bridal registries are thought to have begun after WWI in the 1920s when most new couples could not afford to purchase an entire fine china set; Ware Jewelers was one of the first official bridal registries in Auburn. The Ware’s opened their doors just a little over a year after WWII ended, and back then, items were still pretty scarce in many areas of Alabama, especially in towns the size of Auburn. According to the United States Census Bureau, 36,455 people living in Lee County, of which 8,297 people lived in Auburn and 12,828 people who lived in Opelika.
