Open Mon-Sat 11-6, Sun 12-5 at 502 E 3rd Street.
Tulsa's custom wedding ring and jewelry store now has a location at The Boxyard in downtown's East End Village. Founded in 2003 just a few blocks down the street where Hodges Bend is today, Spexton Boxyard is the 3rd store in town for owners Greg & Nate.
"After such great support from the community of our new sister store, Landella, we knew that we wanted to reserve the last available retail space at The Boxyard for a new Spexton concept. Greg and I built the store completely by ourselves over the summer, and now I'm making all the jewelry to fill up the cases with. I love working on bigger projects with Greg and we've done several stores together at this point, but I especially like Spexton Boxyard--it is my favorite space we've ever occupied," explains Nate.
"I wanted to create a space where I could work and sell, and so half of the store is display, and the other half my workshop with my laser, polishing wheel, workbench, mill, computer, engraver, etc. It is a fun place for customers to see the creative process right at work."
While Spexton Fine Jewelry on Cherry Street offers diamonds, engagement rings, repair, and appraisal services, Spexton Boxyard will focus on classic Spexton wedding band and jewelry designs made by Nate and Greg. "We built the store to have lots of space to showcase jewelry. Even though it is only 320 square feet, our drawers allow us to have 70 feet of display--more than any of our previous stores. As I design each new necklace, bracelet, or ring, I'll fill up all the drawers. Each time you come in there will be new treasures to discover," says Nate. "This small size of this space allows me to be very efficient--I can create a new design, photograph it, add it to the website, and then display it in the store for purchase. I love working this way," he adds.
