Ken & Daughter Jewelers, Inc.
We are a family run jewelry store that has a very hands on approach to our customer service. The store is run by Edie & Greg Salmon, who are second and third generation Jewelers.
The store was originally founded by Ken Roush, who started Ken's Jewelers in 1955 in Cutt Bank, Montana. He moved to Newberg in 1979 and started Ken's Jewelers in 1980.
Edie Salmon, Owner & Daughter of Founder Ken Roush
Edie has lived in Newberg since 1977 and is married to Steve Salmon. Edie joined her Dad at the store in 1990. She often jokes that she was not hired but instead simply instructed to report to work since her Dad was short-handed at the time. However, once she arrived, she found she never wanted to leave as the love of jewelry making had been passed on to her.
