Our Story

our story

In 1987, Don and Lynn Blakeman opened Blakeman’s Fine Jewelry. Don and Lynn spent many years in the diamond industry before they decided to settle down and open their jewelry store with $5,000 in savings.The goal was to build a family business and to be able to spend a lot of time with their family


Blakeman’s Fine Jewelry offers the best value in our market. We accomplish this not by cutting corners, but by going the extra mile – literally. We have decades-long business relationships with the best diamond cutters, designers, and manufacturers worldwide.

Our customers are knowledgeable and well-traveled and have come to expect only the best value from Blakeman’s Fine Jewelry. We will always work to delight all of our customers with exceptional value.


Blakeman’s Fine Jewelry has always done and always will do the right thing. This is more important to us than any other aspect of our business.

Don Blakeman, our founder, recently earned a master’s degree in leadership and ethics from John Brown University, so you can see how high a priority this is for us.

You’ll notice, when you enter our store, our jeweler’s workroom and that the entire space is open and comfortable. This transparency is an essential characteristic of our business. You can browse through the elegant jewelry at your leisure, and the Blakeman family is on the premises to answer your questions.
