The History of Kimball’s Jewelers

Since 1933, Kimball’s Jewelers has been Knoxville’s premier jeweler, but our heritage goes back even further. It began in the 1870s with our parent company, Hope Brothers Jewelers. In 1933, the business re-opened as Kimball’s Jewelers in downtown Knoxville on Gay Street.

It was at our Gay Street location in downtown that we developed our reputation for exceptional quality and customer service. In 2004, we relocated from downtown Knoxville to our current location at 6464 Kingston Pike on Knoxville’s iconic “Bearden Hill.”

Kimball’s welcomes everyone like family. We strive to develop genuine relationships with our customers and truly care about their needs—from selecting that first piece of jewelry, to creating the perfect engagement ring, to maintaining family heirlooms.

We feel honored and blessed to have served the Knoxville community longer than any other jewelry store in the area. Thank you for your continued patronage.
