DePriest Robbins was started in 1998 by Stephanie Robbins. She had worked in a storefront for 15 years as a graduate gemologist, buyer, and manager. She decided to start a personalized jewelry boutique to introduce a new way to purchase jewelry.
“It was a God thing, I believe that because I really jumped off a cliff when I opened up my store. Because it’s really not a store, it’s a totally different concept. You get the same thing as you would get in a storefront jewelry store but you don’t pay for the overhead and you get my personal attention.”
Stephanie works with a variety of designers that she began working with 30+ years ago. These designers are still flourishing in the jewelry market and many have been creating works of art for generations. The people behind these lines make trunk shows fun because they come and meet Stephanie’s clients and develop relationships with them over the years.
Jewelry at DePriest Robbins is not behind a glass case but out in the store where you can try it on and enjoy it. Stephanie wants you to choose the perfect piece for your collection and feels that trying it on without feeling pressured is an integral part of that.
Stephanie also spends a good amount of time working with master craftsmen to design custom pieces for clients. She loves working with clients to design a piece that has special meaning for them. These types of pieces can be for special occasions like engagements or anniversaries, to create a piece more in the client’s style from heirloom stones, or to design a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry that can be passed down for generations to come.
“This business is all about relationships. I never take helping my client for granted. I feel very honored to be a part of their life.”
