Missouri Couple Retires and Closes Jewelry Store May 08, 2023 (0 comments)


Des Peres, MO--David and Marigold Colvin, the owners of M&D Hubbell Jewelry & Repair, closed their store on April 29 for retirement, according to a local newspaper.

The longtime Kirkwood area residents worked in the jewelry business for over 45 years, says a report in the Webster-Kirkwood Times. Their store, located at 12022 Manchester Road, was originally part of Hubbell Jewelry — a business that started after World War II — that they acquired in 1994.

After nearly 30 years in business, they leave behind strong relationships with their customers.

“I’m really going to miss them. They’re very honest people,” customer Priscilla Tomasovic told the newspaper. 

David, 64, and Marigold, 63, reportedly said they are ready to enjoy retirement, keeping busy with traveling, recovering old cars and geology. They both said they’re really going to miss the customers.

“When people come in to buy a piece of jewelry, there’s always a story there, like a special anniversary or birthday,” Marigold Colvin reportedly said. “We’ve known our customers and we’ve known their kids. They came in year in and year out.”
