Our customers mean everything to us. Without you, we wouldn’t still be serving Stockton after all of these decades!
We are family owned and operated and aren’t just here to “make a sale.” We are here to make sure you absolutely love what you are selecting. We want you to be excited about your jewelry just as much as we are! We are passionate about what we do and the customers that become part of the KSJ family.
We get invested in our customers and their love stories! It is the best part of what we do!
We love helping someone who wants to get engaged! The anticipation, excitement and love shows and it is a special moment not only for our customers, but for us as well. We know that a life changing question will be asked soon and the jewelry is a part of that story. Sometimes, it is a person’s first time in our store. Some may be nervous and quiet while others may be excited and talkative. Each experience is unique but we love helping our customers find the perfect engagement ring for their future fiancee!
At Kevin Schimke Jewelers, we know you want a jeweler you can trust. Kevin is a Graduate Gemologist from world renowned Gemological Institute of America, GIA. His daughter Erika is following in his footsteps.
The Schimke Family jewelry store legacy began in El Cerrito, California in 1951. Larry Schimke (Kevin’s dad) was a watchmaker and served the bay area until his passing in 1977. Kevin worked alongside his father learning the ins and out of the business and became just as passionate about jewelry as a teenager. Kevin got married to his wife Bella and went on to attend the Gemological Institute of America earning the title of Graduate Gemologist. After graduating in 1979, he came to Stockton and opened Kevin Schimke Jewelers on the Miracle Mile. Decades later, his daughter Erika is following in his footsteps with the same background and education!
When you walk into our store you can expect to see the same faces of the Schimke family every time we are open! So you will get to know us just as we get to know you! Our family would love to help you with your jewelry needs. We hope to see you soon!

If anyone is looking for an amazing jewelry store I hands down recommend Kevin Schimke on the Miracle Mile! From the day Mark went to him with his idea on an engagement ring to getting it resized within 2 days and cleanings! They are family owned and quite possibly the nicest people you will ever meet! Since getting engaged they have fixed a couple of precious jewelry items and they were fixed quickly and treated with such care as if it was their own. We can't wait to get our wedding rings with K.S! Plus we got the coolest opportunity to be on a billboard in Stockton for our engagement! Support your local businesses. Especially this lovely family they care about creating the best pieces for your most precious moments!Brie Baumgarten Customer
Most honest jeweler in town!! I took my ring to my regular jeweler for cleaning and she said I knocked the placement off and needed new prongs, it was going to cost me $500! I posted asking my FB friends for a reliable jeweler to take a second look and Erika (a high school friend) responded to go see her dad - I did and come to find out my ring was just fine!! Just needed a little tightening! It's hard to find hard working HONEST business owners! I adore this family and their work ethic! I will never go to another jeweler ever! Even though I don't purchase a ton of jewelry, when I do it will be here!! Thank you Schimke Jewelers for being honest and trustworthy! I know I can refer friends and family and they will be taken great care of!Ashley Brais Customer
Kevin and his family are amazing and do amazing work! I brought in my 1930's marquise cut platinum engagement ring in need of a band to match it. Kevin made me a band that blends so seamless it looks like it's been with the ring since the 1930's. The craftsmanship on the band is flawless, the baguettes line up perfectly to the baguettes on the engagement ring, and the marquise point fits in the band like a glove. I get so many compliments on my ring and its matching wedding band. Thank you guys!Michelle T Customer
Had a custom engagement ring and eventually wedding bands designed by Kevin Schimke. They are absolutely beautiful! Wouldn't trust anyone else in Stockton. Excellent service and family experience. Thank you Kevin Schimke and family!!Lindsay H. Customer
I have been with Kevin Schimke as my jeweler for around 40 years. I now live in Oregon and I fly down twice a year and I make sure I make a visit to his store. He has always been extremely professional and very knowledgeable of what I need. He has custom made many pieces of excellent jewelry for me. I would not trust another single jeweler. And his daughter is right up there with him. He truly is remarkable.Maggie Bierly Customer
A really nice selection of jewelry with many one of a kind gemstones rarely seen in most large jewelry stores. The perfect place for finding that unique gift. They also do appraisals which are required in order to insure most pieces of jewelry from loss or damage. This small family business is one of the last of it's kind and one of the better jewelers in Stockton.Chris Pezzoni Customer
