King Jewelers’ owner and founder Derek King still remembers tinkering with the jewelry bench his father kept in the basement while he was growing up. King always enjoyed jewelry and considered it part of his life, and in 1999 he decided to make jewelry a career.
After extensive formalized schooling and several years working in the jewelry industry, King knew it was time to pursue his dream of starting a locally owned store that offered high quality, affordable jewelry along with top-notch customer service. King Jewelers was born at its current location at Capital Ave and Beckley Road in 2003.
In its ten years in business, King Jewelers is proud to have been part of thousands of engagements, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, and special “just because” moments. The Battle Creek community has embraced King’s excellent custom designs and great selection, and the store now has eight employees and many loyal customers. The family dynamic at King Jewelers remains strong as two family members work in the business and all look forward to the second generation joining the business in the future.
