Lee Ann Hartley, founder of Lee Ann's Fine Jewelry, started in the jewelry business in 1979 where she started working for nearly four years with Law's Jewelry, LTD in Burlington, Iowa then employed by Sheppard's Jewelers in 1983, and continued there until opening her own store. Lee Ann and Rachel opened Lee Ann's Fine Jewelry in September 1995.
Lee Ann went to work for a jeweler in Iowa where she was living at that time. In 1983 she moved to Russellville, Arkansas and found employment at Sheppard's Jewelers where she was employed for twelve years before opening her own jewelry store. In 2016, Lee Ann's added their second location located at 655 Dave Ward Drive, Suite 102 in Conway.
Having two goldsmiths on staff, Lee Ann's is able to design and custom make jewelry for people using their own gold that sometimes has sentimental value to them. Additionally, we are able to remount our customers' loose stones on the premises. Rachel is a lifetime member of the Junior Auxiliary of Russellville. Lee Ann's has been a member of Russellville Chamber of Commerce since 1995. Lee Ann's is very active in donating to many of the local charities. We have two Graduate Gemologists on staff and provide insurance appraisals. We specialize in being friendly and helpful to everyone.
When not at the store, Rachel and her husband Rick enjoy traveling and motorcycle riding in their spare time.
