Jewelry Design Center was having some growing pains and wanted to expand our reach. As we readied to grow our presence in the Inland Northwest, we knew immediately where we had to go - Missoula, Montana. The Toone family has deep rooted connections to the area - growing up in Butte, Corvallis, Libby and Missoula. The dream to return home never subsided. We are so excited to bring our unparalled customer service, community pride, and impeccable quality standards back to where it all began.
Brian Toone was a member of the 1991-92 undefeated state champion football team at Butte High School and went on to play for the University of Montana from 1992-96. He was a member of the 1995 National Championship team, and in 1996 he proposed to Beth Murray (his high school sweetheart) on the 50 yard line of Washington-Grizzly Stadium.
Denver, who is also entrenched in the family legacy, grew up in Corvallis, Butte, and Libby. He graduated from Big Sky High School in Missoula and earned his professional ski instructor accreditation and taught skiing at Snowbowl while earning his business degree in finance through the University of Montana.
After many years of being asked when we would be opening a location in Montana, we are finally able to say, "Soon, VERY soon!"
Please stay tuned for updates, photos and the latest happenings with our new store as we work towards opening in 2023!
