About Us


Historical photo of the Neckers familyU.S. Brumer came to Iowa from Germany in the late 1800's. He settled in DeWitt and opened Brumer's Jewelry at 807 6th Avenue in DeWitt in 1893, making it one of the first stores of its kind in the area.

Brumer operated the store successfully and reputably for 59 years before selling it to Don Necker in 1952. This was the beginning of Necker's Jewelers. Don Necker changed the name of the store to Necker's Jewelers and in the past 54 years the store has been remodeled three times to accommodate growth and jewelry innovation.

Don Necker started in the jewelry business in 1949, a mere three years before founding the business that would become his legacy. He worked at jewelry stores in Maquoketa and Dubuque after attending Bradley University Watch Making and Jewelry School.

His son Dave, who was brought up in the jewelry business, joined him in 1982 after attending the Gemological Institute of America, Inc. in California. Don's son D.J. Necker, a University of Iowa graduate, joined the business in 1989 completing the family tradition of jewelry, quality and customer service. Sadly, that same year, Don Necker passed away after more than 35 years with his successful business.

Keeping in step with the family vision of providing quality, brilliant jewelry to the entire Quad City Area, the Necker's one store company grew threefold. Necker's expanded in the early 1990's to three store locations: The DeWitt store, and two local mall additions in Bettendorf, IA and Moline, IL.

Since that time, Necker's has grown even more. In order to focus on freestanding locations, Necker's has closed all mall locations. Our new store designs incorporate a large showcase area complete with lounging areas and large toy rooms. We offer private consultations and diamond rooms for viewing diamonds. There is no customer we want to overlook. Our large showcase areas make it easy and convenient to view our growing display of beautiful jewelry. We've added the lounges and complimentary beverages to make your visit an enjoyable, unforgettable experience; and our large toy rooms to stress that even the busiest parents deserve beautiful jewelry and a chance to enjoy it in a family founded, family friendly environment.
