Dolgin's History

For four generations, the Dolginow family has run jewelry stores in Kansas City. See a timeline and photos of our different stores and offices.

Our (Current) Dolgins Store

Richard Dolginow established the office where we currently operate. He loved fine jewelry and just wanted to talk about it, so a private small office with a full jewelry shop focusing on unique custom pieces at reasonable prices was the perfect environment.

Meet Joseph

Joseph is the 4th generation of Dolginow's to run Dolgins Fine Jewelry in Kansas City. He inherited the current office from his dad Richard in April 2020. Joseph grew up helping clients at Diamond Expressions.
