Kent Jewelry was founded in 1984 by Kent and Lindsay Bagnall. A Missouri S&T Alum (then University of Missouri-Rolla), Kent worked as a professional civil engineer for several years before deciding to go to work for himself. He and his family created what would be known as one of the finest and most-widely known jewelry stores in south-central Missouri. In 2018, the Bagnall's sold the store to a young local couple, Sarah and Zach Woolsey. Kent can still be seen around the store and sees clients upon appointment.
Kent Jewelry is the premier jewelry store of the Ozarks, having won the area's best jewelry store award for the past 13 consecutive years. Kent Jewelry provides a full scope of services that range from jewelry repair in our in-house repair shop to custom CAD-CAM design and casting. The Woolsey's plan to operate the store with the same values of trust, service, and community that Kent spent his 34-year run in the industry creating.
