Our History at Drenon Jewelry in Missouri

Rolex and Drenon Jewelry History

Our story begins in 1945 with Mike Drenon, who with a dream and a shoebox of $500, started Drenon Jewelry as a repair shop for watches.
With his knowledge of watchmaking and jewelry, his little shop in Fairmount grew to be one of the most respected jewelers in the Kansas City area, and created a wonderful foundation for our family-owned and operated business.

Drenon Jewelry history

Missouri’s Destination for Jewelry

Mike Drenon and wife Pansy started the first Drenon Jewelry showroom together in 1945, and through hard work and perseverance they started the traditions that our family still hold dear today. Their daughter Karen and Frankie took over as owners in 1978 with their teenagers Steve and Rhonda working in the store. Working in the store since he was 9, Steve took over as the 3rd generation owner in 2009. Currently we have four members of the family working at the store, with a couple of them being within the 4th generation to step into the business. Although we may have moved a few times over the years, our dedication has always remained with providing the best service and selection to our customers. We earned the title as an Official Rolex Retailer in 2004, and have maintained our standing as one of the best stores for incredible timepieces.
