We are a family owned business since 1945, ran by the Irish family. We offer custom jewelry, repair, appraisal and sales. We also work on timepieces, including watches and clocks, as well as offer a wide range of coins and unique collectibles.
Established in 1945.
We were founded on old Route 66 at the intersection of 7th and Main, in a tiny one person room at 710 main. In the 1960's we expanded 1000% to include both 712 and 710 buildings. During the height of the downtown vitalization in the 1970's we were one of the top stores in Joplin, offering full service support for jewelry repair and sales. We were the only store with a team of horologists working on watches, hence our name Tick-O-Time.
As our company grew, we found great success with offering fine jewelry and repair. Unfortunately, the rise of shopping centers and Wal-Mart impacted the downtown movement, yet we remained at the same location until 2001.
In 2001, we opened a new location in the Northpark mall and another one on the busy Rangeline Road. In 2009 we decided to move to a smaller location after the economy suffered a loss.
In 2011, our store in Main street was severely impacted by the F4 tornado that devastated Joplin. In 2012 we re-opened at our current location.
