About Dempsey's Jewelers

Get to know us.

Dempsey’s Jewelers is here for you whether you are purchasing in our store, or on this website. We want you to know the Dempsey’s difference.

Dempsey’s Jewelers has served upper East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia for over thirty years. This business started in 1976 as a Repair & Fabrication Center for area Jewelry Stores. Wanting to serve the public, Dempsey and his wife opened the retail store in April of 1993. Working as the only Master Goldsmith, Master Stone Setter and Caster of fine jewelry, Dempsey began his journey. The store quickly grew from just two employees to a staff of fourteen. When entering Dempsey’s you will find unmatched service coupled with a friendly staff, goldsmithing and designing are the elements that truly gleam from this family owned business.

"I love that I can help in such major events in people’s lives. Hearing their stories, their events, and what lead them to the store; then taking all of that in and helping them create a piece of jewelry which captures all of those moments, is what drives me."

– Chris Jordan
