Scott and Maxine King of King Jewelers Announce Their Retirement

David and Jonathan King will continue the family business and legacy at King Jewelers’ store in Nashville, Tennessee.




(PRESS RELEASE)AVENTURA, FL — After several decades as jewelry and watch industry leaders, Scott and Maxine King of King Jewelers have announced their retirement.

The King family has a long and prominent history in the industry. In 1912, Scott’s Great-Great Grandfather, Louis King, launched the family’s five-generation jewelry business as the first jewelry store in South Florida.

Through the years, King Jewelers has serviced many celebrities, musicians, and athletes including Frank Sinatra, Elton John, Dwade Wayne, and more.

“It’s been our pleasure to serve not only generations of South Floridians, but also family generations from all over the country who have remained our loyal clients and friends throughout the years. I’m especially proud of my two boys who will continue the King legacy as Maxine and I retire,” says Scott King.

King Jewelers’ CEO Scott King has devoted his entire life to upholding the King legacy. As the President of King Jewelers, Maxine King has played a crucial role in the development and success of the company.

“While it’s very difficult to say goodbye to our friends and clients in South Florida, we retire with so much gratitude. For more than fifty years, we’ve given our hearts to style our clients from around the world in some of the most spectacular jewelry and diamond creations,” says Maxine King.


David and Jonathan King will continue the family business and legacy at King Jewelers’ store in Nashville, Tennessee. With the closing of the Aventura store, the Nashville location has become the new flagship store of King Jewelers.

Although the closure of the Aventura store marks the end of an era, King Jewelers will continue to provide concierge and online services to the South Florida region while upkeeping the tradition of “A Family of Fine Jewelers Since 1912.”

The fifth generation of Kings is thriving, and the family is committed to continuing the 111-year legacy. The Nashville store continues to expand, starting with the opening of an IWC Schaffhausen boutique this fall in addition to other several new projects on the horizon in Tennessee.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
