White’s Jewelry Closing After 46 Years with a Going Out of Business Sale October 10, 2022 (1 comment)


Rogers, AR--Known as the place “where Northwest Arkansas Gets Engaged,” White’s Jewelry in historic downtown Rogers is closing its doors. After 46 years, owner Rick White is retiring to spend more time with his family. To thank customers for their support, the jeweler has begun a “Going Out of Business Sale” with up to 70% off until everything is sold.

White’s Jewelry is a full-service jewelry store that has provides the community with custom design work; jewelry, watch and clock repairs; appraisals and insurance services; and buying gold and estate jewelry from the public.

White’s offerings include a private label couture collection of diamond essential jewelry, including engagement rings, hoop earrings, necklaces and bracelets. It also represents popular engagement ring brands like La Vie, Barkev’s, S. Kashi, and Romance; and fine fashion from Frederic Duclos, Elle, and Allison Kaufman.

Alongside new and estate jewelry and pre-owned Rolex watches in the showcase, visitors also can find original artwork, military uniforms, antique pocket watches, silver coins, even a vintage streetlamp from the Mundelein University campus. Like a curio shop, White’s has been a destination for people who enjoy discovering unique and special offerings.

White, who has been in the jewelry business since 1968, says his biggest passion is buying things from the public, hearing family stories and handling items of historic significance. Early in his career, he passed on the chance to purchase a copy of the Declaration of Independence that turned out to be one of 13 original copies in existence and ultimately sold for $1 million. A journalist’s autograph book he sold included famous people from the 1800s, such as Joseph Pultizer, Henry Ford, and American sculptor Vinnie Ream.

White opened his first jewelry store in 1976 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. During that time, he also served as a consultant to what was then the second oldest jewelry store in America, Lemon and Son’s in Louisville, Kentucky (founded 1828). During the course of his career, he operated 13 jewelry stores at one time.

White says he is retiring to pursue interests with his three children and 10 grandchildren, as well continuing to work on his farm. “It has been a joy to serve all of our customers.” He says.

White’s Jewelry Going Out of Business Sale will continue until everything is sold, at 115 W. Walnut St. For more information about the sale visit White’s Facebook page at or its website
