A Family Affair
Our story begins in 1957 with a man named Laurence Smith who served as truck driver and battalion watchmaker with General George Patton in Europe. After the war he built his business in downtown Beaverton. In 1974 Mr. Smith hired a veteran fresh from service in the Navy named Bill Bevill. Bill was trained as a master watchmaker and gemologist. The two became partners and Smith & Bevill was born.
Our business has grown over the last 56 years and so has the family. From those early ‘boot strap’ days the store has grown to it’s current 7000 square foot showroom and state of the art manufacturing facility.
Bill and Kathleen are joined in the store by their daughters Angela and Gina. Even the family dog Dolce works as official greeter. Whether it’s online or in our beautiful showroom, know that you will be treated like family.
Because of our passion for excellence we have a full staff of craftsmen- gem setters, master metal smiths and master watchmakers as well as 2 fully certified gemologist appraisers, AGS accredited Lab, AGS member and annual certification. No other jewelry store can match our level of service.
