The Joslin’s Jewelry story began in 1977 when Gary Joslin’s brother Donnie opened the original Joslin’s in the Raytown Plaza Shopping Center. Joslin’s began as a “custom jeweler” – one that became known for creating extremely fine works of custom jewelry at a price most everyone could afford.
In 1982, Gary joined his brother Donnie in the jewelry business. Soon after, the Joslin’s Overland Park store was opened. Donnie’s exceptional talent for creating custom jewelry was complemented by Gary’s passion for seeing the smile on each satisfied customer’s face. As Gary puts it, “It was three chains, two rings, a watch, a song and a prayer.”
