Voted as a 2019 Mom-Approved Award Winner in the
“Best Jewelry Store” category
Winner: Underwoods Fine Jewelers
Location: 611 W. Dickson Street, Fayetteville, Ark.
Operating since: Underwoods was founded in 1957 by Bill Underwood. The company has a 60-year history as remarkable as the diamonds and gemstones it’s famous for.
About 10 years after it opened, the small shop got a new home when the famous Underwood building — designed by renowned architect Fay Jones — was completed in 1966.
During the 70s, Underwood’s made a name for itself not only locally but nationally, too. Bill Underwood was selected by the Smithsonian Institute as one of only 33 jewelers in America to create a special jewelry piece for the Smithsonian Collection. And in 1979, he was asked to do a certified appraisal for a ring belonging to none other than Elvis Presley! Most recently, Underwoods has been one of a select few jewelers to represent the jewelry industry at Hollywood’s Emmy’s and Oscar’s Red Carpet Events.
What you might not know about Underwoods: One of the things we love most about Underwood’s is how, despite earning national acclaim, the Underwood family has never forgotten its roots and how important it is to invest in community. Since the year 2000, Underwood’s has given more than a half a MILLION dollars to non-profits in Northwest Arkansas.
