About Kokkeler's Jewelry

The Kokkeler's Story

In 1955, during their first year of marriage, Bev and Clem Kokkeler bought a watch repair bench so Clem could repair watches in their tiny attic apartment. One year later they purchased Kleckner's Jewelry in downtown Bismarck and their journey as jeweler's began.

The Kokkeler's put their life into the little shop; living in the back room with their daughter Bonnie for the first six years in order to make the store work. Now after over 60 years in business and still located in the same great spot, Kokkeler's Jewelry continues to provide stunning jewelry and renowned customer service.

Thank you to all our customers - past and present. For all the weddings our jewelry has attended, the anniversaries and proposals our jewelry helped make memorable, and all the little boxes opened on those special those special days.
