Pugh’s Designer Jewelers started in 1996, under the name of Myers & Pugh Designer Jewelers. Michael Myers and Kevin Pugh combined their years of jewelry experience to create a fabulous home town jewelry store and design studio. This partnership continued until Mike’s retirement in December of 2013 when Kevin became the sole owner.

In 1998 Myers & Pugh Designer Jewelers was accepted as a member of the American Gemological Society earning both the Registered Jeweler and Certified Gemologist Appraiser titles. We are recognized as an Accredited Gem Laboratory and continue to maintain the high standards of the American Gem Society.

We are located at 44 S. Second Street in downtown Newark near The Works. *Click here for directions.* The location makes it easy for local and regional customers to visit our showroom. We are one block south of the Courthouse Square in downtown Newark with plenty of nearby parking.


Our mission is to provide our customers with an extraordinary jewelry experience. If you dream it; together, we can design and build it. We offer service after the sale on everything purchased in our store.

We strive to achieve the highest standard of integrity in our business dealings, along with excellent customer service. We have searched all over the world to assemble our collection of unique and one of a kind colored gemstones. Our diamond selection emphasizes ideal cutting and affordable quality. We promise to accurately grade gemstones and to be truthful in our appraisals. We do our very best to insure our diamonds and gemstones are non-conflict stones.

In our Custom Design Studio, we have combined many years of experience, with state-of-the art technology, to offer you the ability to take your ideas, and have them transformed into beautiful jewelry pieces. These pieces then become a reflection of your individual taste and style for your enjoyment.
