Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry began as a labor of love for its founder, Robert Mucklow. He took great care to design a unique experience for every client. Creating a vibrant history steeped in innovative, captivating jewelry design and service to the community, Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry is an escape from the mundane where every touchpoint reaffirms and strengthens the other. The captivating décor and showcase of skilled artisans creates a visual experience that is enhanced by jewelry offerings from select designers. Genuine customer service and attention to detail by our expert, talented team guides clients every step of the way. These details and our dedicated team have built the Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry legacy for over 25 years. Upon his retirement, Robert Mucklow trusted David Murray to steward this legacy. For David, owning Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry is a dream come true.
Our Owner David Murray
David Murray has lived in Fayette County for 17 years with his wonderful wife, 6 children, and 11 grandchildren. David entered the watchmaking business in 1987. Following 20 years in the wholesale watch business, David opened King’s Watch and Jewelry Repair in 2011, which continues today to serve clients with excellence. He has built, serviced, and repaired watches and jewelry for 30 years. People come to David for his expertise, but they always return because of his extraordinary service and integrity. David values treating family heirlooms with the utmost care and treating clients with honesty and honor. For over 14 years, David Murray also served as the watchmaker for Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry. During that time he and Robert Mucklow enjoyed a working relationship with mutual respect for one another’s excellent craftsmanship, work ethic, and values for treating all team members and clients like family.
Meant To Be
Over the years, David found fulfillment in the creative artistry of working with clients to create one-of-a-kind custom jewelry. In addition to his passion for watches, David’s passion for jewelry and jewelry making grew into a dream to own a fine jewelry store. He tucked that dream away until a friend asked, “What do you want to do? Where do you see yourself?” David responded, “I would love to own a jewelry store.” She pressed him further, “So specifically what is your dream?” David responded, “I would love to own a store like Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry!” Just uttering the words reignited an old dream. David started looking into purchasing a location to open his dream jewelry store, but the right doors were not opening.
Two months after the conversation that reignited his dream, Robert Mucklow approached David about purchasing Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry. The very same Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry he told his friend he would want a store just like. Robert knew he could trust David to carry on the Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry legacy and to care for its family of team members and clients. At the beginning of March 2021, Robert Mucklow passed the baton of ownership of Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry to David Murray.
David shares, “My dream came alive again and God dropped the opportunity to pursue it right in my lap! And now, here I am, furthering a dream hidden in my heart because a friend challenged me to go after it, and right when I thought there was no way possible, God answered.” Murray’s ownership of Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry is clearly meant to be.
Everything you’ve grown to love and appreciate about Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry continues on, including our steadfast team. We will continue to enhance our connections in the community, our belief in family traditions, authenticity, relationships, excellent service, and craftsmanship. David passionately stewards and builds upon the Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry legacy of authentic, genuine service and providing jewelry that celebrates life’s most special moments, without harming our blue planet.
