About Montgomery's Jewelry
Montgomery’s Jewelry was founded in 1946 by Woodrow Wilson “Blackie” Montgomery, and his wife Mary Livingston Montgomery. Mr. Montgomery started his career as a watch repairman. He then progressed into carrying china and gifts, and eventually learned to do some jewelry repair work. The Montgomery’s had four sons.
Their youngest son, Woodrow “Woody” Montgomery went to jewelry school and gemology school to become a jeweler. He attended jewelry school in Paris, Texas at The Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology and attended gemology school in Los Angeles, California at GIA (Gemological Association of America). While Woody was away at school Michelle Sharp was hired.
Michelle learned everything she could from Mrs. Montgomery, and Mrs. Montgomery eventually made Michelle the manager and buyer for the store. When Woody returned from school, he and his wife, Robin Nettles Montgomery, bought the store from his parents, while his parents continued to work with him and his wife at the store. Robin learned how to keep the books and the day to day accounting from Mrs. Montgomery.
Eventually, Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery passed away leaving the business fully in the hands of their son, Woody (jeweler/gemologist), his wife, Robin (book keeper), and Michelle (manager/buyer). Since they passed, the business has continued to thrive and grow.
Woody, Robin, and Michelle all have roughly 40 years experience in the jewelry industry each. It is something they are all educated and passionate about.
