Company History

Scott, the principle owner of Douglas Designs, started collecting gems at a young age. At 18 he worked for Kay Jewelers, eventually starting his own company at age 20. By 22 he had his own retail jewelry store, Douglas Diamonds Corporation. Over the next 10 years, Douglas Diamonds grew rapidly and became known as a high quality jewelry manufacturer and refiner. Scott built an enormous repair business, and started branching out into wholesale, picking up several jewelry store clients. In 2012 he created Jackaroo Mining Group, a family owned mining company that currently has 9 gold and silver mines spread across Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Idaho. Scott’s largest mine, the Constitution Mine in Idaho, has 5 levels, over 14,000 linear feet of tunnel, and is over 1800ft deep at it’s deepest point. In July of 2014, Scott took a break from retail and closed Douglas Diamonds, while opening his new jewelry manufacturing company Douglas Designs. After 3 years of working exclusively in wholesale, while still catering to an increasing demand from his previous clientele, Douglas Designs opened a retail location at the Coventry Mall in Pottstown, PA. The store is unique in that it gives customers the ability to see the entire design process from start to finish. Customers can watch their piece be cast from the front window, or watch the jewelers setting and polishing!
