In 1979, Patti and Terry Johnson, of Moscow, ID, opened Charms and Things in the Palouse Mall. Patti then renamed it to Patti's Jewelry in the early 80's and opened up Johnson's Jewelry in 1986, located right across the hall. In 1987 Patti decided to consolidate the two stores into one, Johnson's Jewelry. Patti decided she had a passion for jewelry and went on to learn more and become a certified bench jeweler. Patti and Terry retired in 2000 and sold the company to their son, Tony.
Tony and Kim Johnson are the current owners of Johnson's Jewelry. Tony has spent the last 29 years working full time in his "office" doing repairs, stone and head setting, and sizing to name a few. He learned years back that working on jewelry was his passion, and said Patti taught him everything she knew. In 1988, he went to jewelers school and continues to take pride in his workmanship. While Tony does the hands-on aspect, Kim does a lot of the custom designing, purchasing, and management of the store. She joined ownership of the store in 2006.
