Pugh's Designer Jewelers


Unique. Affordable. Quality. 


Pugh’s Designer Jewelers has been Family owned & operated since 1975

Kevin Pugh started his goldsmith and design career at the age of 15, working at his father's jewelry store in Zanesville, Ohio. With Kevin's attention to intricate detail, the store was able to offer full service repair, custom design and manufacturing on site. 

Forty two years later, Kevin continues to custom design and offer in-store repair at his studio, Pugh’s Designer Jewelers in Newark, Ohio. He is responsible for over 3,000 “I Do’s” and the creation of countless family heirlooms, while providing the community with the best possible buying experience.
