DJ’s Jewelry was originally founded by David Rexroat and Jon Huffine. That is where the ‘D’ and ‘J’ come from in DJ’s Jewelry.
In the early '90’s DJ's moved to a slightly larger building (also in the same shopping center) at 1,500 square feet. DJ's brought in two more Jewelry Specialists (one of whom was Michelle Huffine--Jon’s wife) and a larger variety of very Fine Quality Jewelry. These changes allowed Jon the capability to take in even more Jewelry repairs and increase his Custom Jewelry Fabrication projects. At this point in DJ’s Jewelry’s growth, it was time for David to retire from the store and Jon became the sole Owner of DJ’s Jewelry. With all the growth and changes, DJ's once again needed larger accommodations!
In 1995 DJ's moved into our current building. We occupied approximately 1,800 square feet this time, which was about half of our building. We wanted to be able to offer our customers as much of a variety of beautiful Jewelry as we could, so we added even more jewelry and jewelry display cases. It was at this store that DJ’s Jewelry was invited to become members of IJO (the Independant Jewelers Organization). Accepting this invitation allowed DJ's to make new connections that allowed us to offer lower prices on the higher-quality jewelry we like to sell and granted us invitations to the Elite Diamond and Gem Houses (to which most jewelry stores do not have access). We now travel to Antwerp, Belgium to find the best prices on the biggest and most spectacular Diamonds available. As well as attend bi-annual training that allows us to find out about the latest and greatest tools and techniques that have been developed and discovered in the Jewelry Industry. This is where we learned about, and decided to bring in, our very own Jewelry Laser which allows us to work right next to the most delicate of gemstones and designs without worry of overheating or melting them. Having the laser has opened all sorts of new possibilities in repairs and custom design projects that would not have been possible with a torch. We want to provide our customers with the best possible service and craftsmanship we can and IJO has definitely been a good addition to our store allowing us to expand what we can offer you.
In 2006, thanks to all our wonderful customers' support and loyalty, we were ready to grow again. We expanded to fill our entire building, which we gave a face-lift to better reflect our DJ's Jewelry Brand. Our square footage has now increased to 3,000 square feet and we now have seventeen jewelry display cases. Which allows us to better showcase our Spectacular Diamonds and Jewelry Collections, as well as the room to better accomodate more Custom Jewelry designing. We strive to do our very best to bring Gorgeous Unique Jewelry to our Customers' fingertips.
On July 27th of 2020 we Celebrated our 33rd Year in Business. We are very Thankful to all of you, our Wonderful and Loyal Customers that have kept us here, growing, and continuing along this wonderful journey with us. Since our Anniversary we have been continuing our Education and Training with IJO and GIA (the Gemological Institute of America) to make sure we are offering you the very best quality, service and experience we can.
We are looking forward to Many more Wonderful Years together and seeing what will come next in this journey with you!
