Our Story

Gayles Jewelers began in 1951 with its founders, Andy and Hazel Overton. With their love for each other, hard work, and faith in God, the store began. Three generations later, the dream continues. In 2000 when the reigns were passed from the Overton's daughter Carolyn McGehee, to her daughters, Cristi Tanner and Bridget Russell, they realized it was time to put away pen and paper and begin the second fifty years taking full advantage of the computer age. But not forgetting the way that Andy and Hazel began the business, we continue to provide our clients with exquisite beauty, unsurpassed quality, stunning choices, and unparalleled professionalism from our spacious and accessible store in Bogalusa, Louisiana. The success of our family business has been a direct result of our commitment to excellence and client satisfaction. If you are already a member of our extended family, Hello! If you are new to us, we genuinely and warmly invite you to get to know us and our special way of doing business.
