In 1924, a young Willam Crow moved from the Colorado farming community of Haxtun to open a jewelry store in Denver. He specialized in fine jewelry and watch repair, and within a few short years, he had four full-time watchmakers who serviced pocket watches for the railroads. Along with carrying fine jewelry and diamonds, the store also sold everything from suitcases to mixers. Over the years, William Crow Jewelers grew into a very well-respected jewelry store. William Crow eventually turned his store over to Lawrence Kaiser, who had worked at the store since 1947. Later, Mr. Kaiser sold the store to his son, Jon Kaiser, operates the jewelry store today.
William Crow has over 89 years of continuous operation and carries a large selection of loose diamonds, gemstones, gold jewelry, pearls, watches, as well as a multitude of engagement rings and other fine jewelry. William Crow also specializes in custom ring and jewelry design. Waxes are hand carved or created by computer cad-cams and one of a kind designs are turned out almost daily.
William Crow is one of the few remaining jewelry stores to offer in-house jewelry and watch repair. There are G.I.A. Graduate Gemologists on site as well as a Certified Master Watchmaker. They work on all jewelry and fine watches. This includes everything from repairing a simple gold chain to restoring your grandmother’s heirloom treasures. Our watchmaker can also repair and overhaul Rolex watches, Patek Philippes, and most better quality watches.
William Crow boasts an extensive estate jewelry department. Vintage jewelry and pre-owned fine watches can be purchased at up to 70% off their original retail prices. Consignment pieces are assessed by our qualified salespeople. The percentage of William Crow’s fees is dependent upon the value of the consigned piece.
Located on the third floor of the University Building, in downtown Denver, William Crow Jewelry has been a Denver constant for four generations.
