A NOTE FROM STANLEY’S

“We specialize in helping our customers find the perfect gift,
appraise the jewelry they already own,
repair their watches and other jewelry, and
create custom pieces that cannot be found in other stores.”

Let me acquaint you with Stanley Jewelers Gemologists.

My father Charles grew up in Beebe, and in the 7th grade left school to help support his widowed mother and younger brother. It was great luck that the drug store needed a soda jerk and even better that the watch repairman took a likening to him. He began to learn clock repair, then watch repair. Eventually he moved to North Little Rock and worked for several jewelers until he got his own spot in the big drug store at 7th and main. 

In 1936, he and my mother, Sally, borrowed $400 and opened up Stanley Jewelers at 210 Main Street. Business thrived during the war years!  My dad was too old to sign up so he worked hard in the business. In the fifties, business was slow and I had shown no promise as a college student, so in 1950 I came to work and immediately fell in love with diamonds. I enrolled in the Gemological Institute of American (GIA) diamond and color gemstone courses. In 1968, I became the first American Gem Society Member in central Arkansas and the first Certified Gemologist. We now have three AGS Certified Gemologists in the store and four of us are AGS Certified Gemologist Appraisers.

In 1960, we opened our Park Hill location where we are now. We have been growing ever since. We were always a full service fine jewelry store but diamonds were still our main focus. In the mid 90’s we started helping customers recycle diamond and fine jewelry with our consignment and estate departments, which has led to tremendous growth in the area of estate jewelry and today we are buying estates from banks, executors and individuals.

Today, we have a fantastic in-store goldsmith and several custom jewelers. Two of my children, Laura and Stephen, are here in the store full time as part of our fantastic team of seven jewelry lovers. We hope you will come see us on the eve of our 80th year and experience Stanley’s!

Loyd Stanley, GG, CGA

Esperanza

The Esperanza Diamond is the largest colorless and internally flawless diamond ever found in the state of Arkansas. The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, AR is a place for anyone to pay a nominal entry fee and keep what they find! 

The diamond spent ten days instore at Stanley’s in September, being cut into a unique triolette. Mike Botha, Master Diamond Cutter, cut the diamond. Learn more about Botha and the Esperanza’s cut at www.embeediatech.ca

Estate & Consignment Jewelry

Stanley’s has a large, amazing estate and consignment department. Over 20 years ago, Loyd Stanley realized that our clients had a need for an honest and reliable way to liquidate jewelry and coins. Since then, the world has changed a lot, and more people just prefer to turn jewelry assets into cash.image-04

We specialize in larger diamonds and fine Swiss watches.  We have items in our collection from the mid 1800s, all the way up to contemporary items rarely worn.

All diamond shapes and qualities will sell! Keep in mind that some shapes are more popular than others.  Please bring in your items for evaluation.

Watches must be evaluated for condition. Original watch boxes and original papers are extremely helpful!

We are happy to evaluate your items on an individual basis. We accept diamonds, fine jewelry, natural gemstones, and some designer sterling items, like David Yurman.

Every piece must be priced individually. Our inventory changes daily. Scroll below to see a small sample of the unique – and well priced – jewelry in Stanley’s estate cases!
