In July 1998, Mary Kay and Gary leased a free standing building in a higher traffic area in Jefferson City on Missouri Boulevard. In November of 2002 Mary Kay and Gary's business was rapidly growing, so they moved once again to their present location in the Capital Crossing Shopping Center on Missouri Boulevard.

Gary Kempker Sr.
In 1994 Mary Kay's business began to grow and she needed someone to handle the financial side of things while she was on the bench, so Gary decided to join her instead of hiring someone. Since Gary joined the business he has really enjoyed designing pieces for customers as well as jewelry competitions. Gary has won many different awards for his designs. His favorite part of it all is working with people to design that one of a kind piece that they have dreamed of and watching their faces light up when he makes their dreams become a reality! Along with designing jewelry, Gary is honored to have the privilege to join only a select few jewelers that have the opportunity to travel to Antwerp, the diamond capital of the world, to hand select the perfect diamond for our customers needs and wants. They have also had the opportunity to travel to Idar-Oberstein, Germany to buy colored gems. Gary has also earned his certification threw Jewelers of America as a Certified Office Manager.
