75 Years
“Every woman wants a Bailey’s box.” … Like most bejeweled stories, Bailey’s Fine Jewelry’s began as a love story—the love of two people for jewelry and each other—and like its now-famed black-and-white boxes, the jewels of that love have stood the test of time. Craftsman and watchmaker Clyde Sr. and “Mama” Ann Bailey opened the first Bailey’s in Rocky Mount in 1948. Seventy-four years and five locations later (including the largest jewelry store in NC at Village District—and a recent addition in LA!), Bailey’s is now in its third generation of family ownership, with Clyde Jr. and his wife (and high school sweetheart) Jane, alongside their son Trey and wife Marci, continuing the legacy of making Bailey’s North Carolina’s premier destination jewelry store. The luster no doubt comes from the family feel and their connection to the communities they serve. And Bailey’s shine isn’t dulling anytime soon. In addition to their love for what they do and big hearts (naturally), Bailey’s employees are the most accredited professionals in the jewelry industry—made up of graduate gemologists, master bench jewelers and watchmakers, Gemological Institute of America accredited employees, and more. They say diamonds are forever…
