Harris Jewelry's mission is to provide military personnel and their families quality jewelry and watches with convenient and reasonable payment terms, while offering exceptional customer service. Experience the Harris Difference! Harris Jewelry was founded in 1955 by Jerome L. Harris, a Marine and World War II Veteran. It was his belief that U.S. Military Service Personnel were entitled to purchase quality jewelry on credit terms specifically created for their needs. He was committed to the ideal that special understanding would always be needed for the unforeseen challenges that can arise in the military lifestyle – relocating families, transfers underway, family emergencies back home, etc.
