Red Lodge Jewelers opened with a dazzlingly flourish last Friday with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Chamber of Commerce with Mayor Bill Larson carrying out the ceremonial cutting. 

The store has a spectacular array of engagement rings, necklaces, earrings, pendants and chains. It is truly a mouthwatering scene. 

David Cruz, proprietor of Red Lodge Jewelers, will carry a wide range of quality product ranging from sterling silver and 14-18 karat gold classical pieces by Robert Manse along with museum quality hand made items in the traditional Navajo style by Lyle Secatero. The store will also provide in-house customize and repair work for clients.

“We are a Stuller dealership. Stuller is one of the largest suppliers of jewelry in the World. Really good quality,” said Cruz.  

Cruz plans to have several special items during the holidays such as a custom made graduated sterling silver Cuban link and other jewelry containing a Montana State (purple) Yogo sapphire.

“Only 1 percent of Yogo sapphires are purple,” said Cruz. 

The stones are cut by Don of Billings, who mines stones all over the world and in Montana.

“The whole Western flavor has been infused in the US and we want to be able to provide that kind of jewelry at a high level of quality that people can trust for years to come,” said Cruz.

Red Lodge Jewelers is based at 13 S. Broadway Ave., Red Lodge. Its opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Sundays 12 noon to 6 p.m.  The store phone number is (406) 445-3211. You can email at and visit at
