James Avery Jewelry is a very familiar name in Texas and the entire United States. They are a family-owned company offering finely crafted jewelry in .925 sterling silver, 14K (58.5% Gold), and 18K (75% Gold) for both Men and Women. James Avery Jewelry has five manufacturing plants, ALL in Texas Hill Country. Hondo, Fredericksburg, Kerrville and Comfort Texas.
The James Avery Jewelry Company had very humble beginnings. James Avery started his jewelry business in the summer of 1954 in a 2 car garage with about $250. He started out by building a small workbench, then bought a few jewelers tools and scrap silver and copper. He had a burning desire to design and manufacture jewelry that had meaning for both him and prospective customers. It is reported that his number one goal was to create jewelry that had lasting value.
A few years down the road in 1957 he mailed out his first catalog that was exclusively Christian Jewelry. It had 16 pages total and featured 39 handmade pieces of jewelry. This same year James Avery also hired his very first employee, by the name of Fred Garcia. Mr. Avery is quoted as saying "I had been doing everything myself - designing, sawing, polishing, finishing and selling. I thought 'what am I going to do? I can't saw that fast!"
In 1965 The garage based company was eventually incorporated to James Avery Craftsman, Inc. Then two years later with the help of a modest loan, the James Avery company headquarters was constructed on 20 acres in the heart of the Texas Hill Country in no other than Kerrville, Texas. Ironically the location was not too far from that original 2 car garage where it all began.
In an impressive run, 53 years after the founding of the company, Mr. James Avery officially stepped down as CEO. This was in May of 2007 and in fitting fashion passed the company to his son Chris. Sadly James Avery passed away on Monday, April 30, 2018, at the age of 96.
