Hustedt Jewelers Crest

Hustedt Jewelers History


In 1980, Larry Hustedt decided he wanted to raise his family in the area where he grew up.

He and his wife, Ursula came home and started Hustedt Manufacturing, opening on their son, Kevin’s first birthday.

Hustedt Mfg. began as a wholesale company that offered custom design and manufacturing as well as professional jewelry repair for several retail stores across the country.

Word quickly spread of Larry's talent and quality of craftsmanship and in 3 years time, he was working with over 40 retail stores doing their custom design and repairs.

In 1983, Larry and Ursula decided they wanted to work with the customer from the start of the creative process and purchased Hoover Jewelers in Gibson City, IL. The store features a jewelers bench in the front window.

Kevin grew up working with his dad and started on that bench at 10 years old. He has worked on single pieces of jewelry valued at over $250,000.00 and created many beautiful pieces from a customer's imagination.

Business grew rapidly. In 2013, Kevin bought the business from his parents and in December of 2016, opened a second location in downtown Pontiac, IL.

Over the years, Hustedt Jewelers and the family’s work, has became one of Central Illinois’s premiere destination for custom design, engagement rings, loose diamonds, and repairs.
