Joslin’s Jewelry in Kansas City has become

known as the family owned and operated

jewelry store you can trust.

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.”

It wasn’t long before word spread about the two brothers and their commitment to customer satisfaction and superior quality – all at reasonable prices. The Joslin’s “little” jewelry store continued to grow and become not-so-little as the Joslin brothers’ reputation spread. They became known as the go-to jewelers for repairs, resizing and resetting precious stones in new more modern settings. Other jewelry retailers began to send customers to Joslin’s – referring customers who needed custom work and repairs to the two brothers. Over time, Joslin’s began to become known as the most trusted jewelry store in town.

Fast forward to today.

Joslin’s Jewelry has become a bit of an icon at 95th and Antioch – having now been part of that neighborhood for more than 40 years! The original store at the intersection was replaced by a newer and larger Joslin’s Jewelry store. These days when you arrive at Joslin’s you may be greeted with a big smile by Gary Joslin – or by his daughter Elicia, or another friendly staff member – all who are just as dedicated as Gary to making your visit to Joslin’s a truly wonderful experience.

Joslin’s now has four full-time jewelers on staff to design, repair and customize your jewelry. Store manager Dave Carpenter has been with Joslin’s Jewelry since 1994 and is certified in diamonds by the Gemologist Institute of America. This great team is in place, so you can be certain that when you visit Joslin’s for a repair or other custom work your jewelry is in great hands!

Whether you’re buying, browsing, in need of an appraisal or a repair, Joslin’s looks forward to seeing you at our new store at 9529 Antioch. It’s approximately 100 yards west of the old store.
