Jayson Jewelers is a woman-owned business in downtown Cape Girardeau. Kendra Harris’ and Regan Laiben’smother’s started the business in 1984.

“She had a love for gemstones and diamonds and felt like it might be fun to have a fine jewelry store. We’re now on our second generation and 38 years!” says Regan Laiben.

“We feel like we’re a really full service jewelry store,” says Kendra, a graduate gemologist. “We have a selection that is second to none. We spend a lot of time researching product and making sure that we have a lot of different merchandise for our customers to look at. We feel like it’s a good experience when you walk in the door. We like to make it fun. At least our customers tell us that’s what we do.”

“Well, first of all, we have an in-house jeweler, Lloyd, with 50 years of experience,” says Regan. “He’s also a metalsmith by trade. So he can work on just about anything that you have. We don’t just work on our jewelry. We work on our clients’ jewelry too. Any family heirlooms they may have. He’s fantastic at refurbishing those pieces.”

“Another thing I think that sets up apart in the industry and locally is that we do a lot of traveling overseas,” says Kendra. “We buy our diamonds direct. We go to Antwerp, Belgium once a year. A lot of our clients like us to special shop for them while we’re there, which is really fun. It makes it an exciting trip for us beyond just the experience of buying at the diamond capitol of the world. So we do that and we also buy gemstones direct as well. So, we create things on our own. We’re making special pieces for not only clients but for the cases in hopes that someone comes in and thinks it’s fantastic and wants to buy it right out of the case. So we spend a lot of time doing that.”

“We have affordable jewelry,” says Regan. “We have brands like Pandora, Mariana, Evocateur. Everything starts at about $25 and goes up from there.”

“We have beautiful jewelry,” Kendra says. “It’s hand selected. We want to make sure that the gift that you give and/or that you buy for yourself you’re going to love forever.”

Jayson Jewelers does financing and layaway. They also have care plans to protect your jewelry. They giftwrap too!
