Chambersburg – Ludwigs Jewelers is proud to be having their 145th anniversary.  Started in 1877 by George Ludwig it has been passed down through the family.  The fourth generation of owners are Emily Dentler, Ann Wagner, and Jane Mentzer.  It is continuing with the fifth generation of Marissa Kyle Shover.  Ludwigs has been a fixture on Main Street through the many changes in Chambersburg. They value highly giving back to the community that has supported them all these years.

To help celebrate this occasion Ludwigs is featuring the iconic Tree of Life jewelry designed by Lois and Don Funk of Route 5.  The tree is a symbol for life itself. Its symbolism is based on a poem “As branches on a tree reach for the sky, a band aid on a wounded heart. You’re my kin and we are bonded.  A birth to death connection.”  Ludwigs is very honored that the Funks have chosen their family to continue this beautiful jewelry tradition.

The tree of life jewelry comes in a variety of sizes and shapes from oval to square and rectangular. There are pendants, earrings, bracelets, and rings. Most are in sterling silver with a small amount in yellow gold. You won’t want to miss adding to your collection or starting a new one. Remember they make a great gift for family.

The anniversary celebration will be held August 11, 12, and 13. There will be drawings, gifts with purchase and special discounts.
