James and Kris Garland opened Garland’s Goldworx in 1985. James was fascinated with jewelry at an early age…by ten he was breaking his moms jewelry and trying to fix it. His father was a huge rock hound, and instilled a love of rocks and gemstones on their many trips back to Wyoming.
James received his training from a master goldsmith in Portland, Oregon. Attended Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad California where he received his diamond grading certificate and platinum fundamentals certificate while continuing his education through GIA.
Our shop started as a small repair shop and grew into a custom design full service store. We make memories out of gold, platinum, diamonds and gemstones.
