About Us



I have always had a passion for jewelry, and a fascination for diamonds and gemstones since I was a little girl.  My family marked every special occasion and milestone with a piece of jewelry.  I still have them all.

I began my experience in the jewelry industry in 1993 with Collier’s Finer Jewelry.  I spent 16 wonderful years with them, until they decided to move their business to Colorado.   The natural thing to do was to start my own business, so I opened Lara’s Jewelry and Design in February 2009.  This industry is fun and challenging, as there are always new things to learn.  It is also very rewarding, and I have the opportunity to make people happy by helping them choose the perfect gift, or re-design an heirloom.  I have built some wonderful relationships with my clients over the years, continue to take excellent care of them.

Jennifer, Judy, Rob, and I have created a relaxing, laid back atmosphere in which to shop and visit pressure free.   With 60 years of combined experience in the jewelry industry, we can assist you with anything you wish.

We feature diamonds, gemstones, watches, gold, platinum and silver jewelry as well as an ever growing estate collection.  There is truly something for everyone, whether you have $20 to spend, or $20,000.  Adorning the walls are beautiful works of art for sale by Hot Springs artists D. Arthur and Lisa Wilson.
