In addition, our on-site shop is qualified to handle all your fine jewelry repair needs. In fact, we are known to fix other jewelers mistakes. Knowing that you have purchased quality fine jewelry at a great value adds to the joy of purchasing, wearing and giving jewelry. Every piece of jewelry we bring to you meets our high standards of quality, value and craftsmanship. We make it simple and always stand behind our jewelry.
In 1939, Al Jester, along with his wife Helen, took his skill as a diamond setter and his knowledge of the jewelry business and opened his own shop. In the beginning, the A.R. Jester Company did jewelry repairs, custom jewelry design and sold to small independently owned jewelry stores.
Randy Jester, their son, joined the business over forty-two years ago at their downtown Cincinnati location. He learned about the jewelry industry and good business practices from his parents and became a GIA certified diamond expert. Their business continued to grow as did the family tree. In 1994, a third generation of Jesters joined the business. Carrie Jester-Mullins started working for her parents and grandparents and was shortly joined by her younger brother, Alan.
In 2008, Randy and his wife, Pauli, who have taken over the business from the late Al and Helen, decided to move from the once-booming downtown Cincinnati. They relocated to the area where they were raised and where they chose to raise their family - the West Side of town. This new location offers easy interstate access, free parking and a little more room for their long-time employees, Mark Jaeger, and Mike Jones. Combined, Jester employees have nearly 200 years of hard work, experience and dedication with Jester Jewelers.
In addition to convenience, the Harrison Road location offers the ability to open our doors to those who want to take advantage of our low wholesale jewelry prices, repair services and custom jewelry design and manufacturing.
