Our Story 

Kingsley North was incorporated by, John Paupore Sr., in 1977 in Norway, Michigan. We sold lapidary equipment and jewelry tools to customers around the country. In 1984 we started selling custom made jewelry in Norway, Michigan under the name: Kingsley North Custom Jewelers. We branched off in 1998 and moved to our current location at 106 West B street in Iron Mountain, Michigan. To this day, at our Norway, Michigan location, we still sell lapidary equipment and jewelry tools all over the world. 

From the beginning, we have designed, cast, and finished the jewelry we make on-site. All repairs are performed in store by one of our two full time jewelers. This allows us to be responsive to our customers needs in an efficient manner. We are passionate about creating sturdy jewelry you will love. We strive to treat all of our customers like royalty.  Come by and meet us, we would love to show you our selection of handcrafted jewelry.
