About the Kagy’s


In 1980, Richard Kagy was serving as an Indiana State Trooper when a fellow trooper approached him about working security for his dad’s jewelry store is Sarasota, FL. Before they knew it Richard and Janie were packing up their two boys, Steven and Mark, and heading south. Both of the Kagy’s were trained by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and got a lot of ground floor experience. In just a few short years, Richard went from security to gemologist to owning his own jewelry store.

For over 35 years, Richard and Janie have served the Sarasota area’s jewelry and watch needs. Once they got here, they put down roots and raised their sons. Half of their customers are friends in town that they made while being active in church, Boy Scouts, 4-H, and Crime Stoppers.

In 2010, Steve and his wife Sam moved back to his hometown with 4 kids so that they could be close to family and so that Steve could learn the family business. And in 2014, Steve’s cousin, Traci moved down with her husband and joined the family business.
