A "New" Hopkinton Jewelers

On May 6th, Hopkinton resident Karen Stephenson celebrated the grand opening of Hopkinton Jewelers. The store, which Stephenson co-owns with her husband Michael, was previously owned by Renee Marino. The Stephensons felt that it was important to preserve some important aspects of the business that Marino established and therefore kept the name Hopkinton Jewelers.
