For over 50 years, Bryant & Sons has been a destination for the Santa Barbara community. From celebrities that live locally to newlywed couples purchasing their first pieces of jewelry, area customers return often to experience its exceptional offerings: impeccable service, expert staff, a pleasant shopping environment, and a range of jewelry and fine timepieces from distinguished designers.
Founded by Bob Bryant in 1965, Bryant & Sons is still at its original location of 812 State Street. Michael Bryant, one of the “sons,” has been in charge of the day-to-day operations of the family business since 1981. Twelve other jewelry professionals, each with twenty to fifty years of professional experience, and three graduate gemologists who trained at the Gemological Institute of America, are also on staff. In 2001, a second store was opened to service the Montecito community.
Bryant & Sons has won nearly every local consumer poll taken over the past fifteen years, and has been acclaimed as the area’s finest jewelry store. Bob Bryant is a widely known business advocate and tireless supporter of youth programs for the area’s under-privileged children, as well as countless other charities. His personal efforts and those of Bryant & Sons have greatly contributed to making Santa Barbara a unique and wonderful place.
