Older than Bozeman, jewelry store celebrates 135 years

BOZEMAN -

The saying, ‘Diamonds are forever,’ is often deemed a cliché, but for one Bozeman jewelry store, it rings true.

That’s why Bozeman staple Miller’s Jewelry has reason to celebrate tonight - They’ve been in business for 135 years.

“We just feel like there are very few people that have had the opportunity to celebrate an anniversary of 135 years in business, and we want to thank the community for supporting us for that time, and we just wanted to put on a little celebration just to say thank you,” said store Manager Cec Johnson.

During the Montana Gold Rush, Founder Henry Pease created the jewelry store in Virginia City, and later moved it to Bozeman in 1882, just one year before Bozeman became an incorporated town in 1883. And the business has been in Bozeman ever since.

Despite moving to a few different locations around Bozeman’s Main St., Miller’s Jewelry settled into its current location in the 1940s, and Johnson’s family took it over in the mid-1980s.

Johnson said he is excited for what the future holds for Miller’s Jewelry.

“Now my wife and I are the next generation to take it on, and we look forward to moving it forward for many more years to come,” he said.

The store will be hosting a celebration tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. in their downtown showroom in partnership with the Downtown Art Walk, and visitors will be able to enjoy champagne and cupcakes while they shop.

    Republican U.S. Senate candidate Troy Downing says he didn’t falsely portray himself as a resident when buying in-state hunting licenses for the past half-dozen years – and can’t believe the issue has become a full-scale criminal case in a Bozeman court.
