As the only state in the nation where diamonds occur naturally, Arkansas has long been known for our gemstones. But when The Miss Arkansas Pageant needs diamonds, they turn to the jeweler that knows diamonds better than anyone in the state: Jones & Son.
At Jones & Son, we're proud that for the past 7 years, our commitment to the community has included serving as The Official Jeweler of the Miss Arkansas Pageant. Over the years, we've donated nearly a quarter-million dollars worth of jewelry and in-kind donations to this worthy organization that has done so much to educate young women in Arkansas and inspire them to be their best. That includes creating the one-of-a-kind coronation ring that has been presented to every reigning Miss Arkansas since we began our partnership in 2014.
The Miss Arkansas Pageant is one of several organizations that Jones & Son is proud to support every year. We are also honored to serve as The Official Jeweler of the Arkansas Children's Hospital Auxiliary. Since partnering with the ACH Auxiliary, we've donated up to $100,000 worth of items per year to help their all-volunteer organization raise funds to assist children and their families right here in Arkansas during the toughest fight of their lives.
Other organizations Jones & Son has been proud to support in Central Arkansas and around the state through the years:
-- Miracle Ball at The 20th Century Club Lodge
-- The Wolfe Street Foundation
-- Catholic High School
-- Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Little Rock
"Our philosophy is that when we get involved with a good cause, we really want to make a difference with a substantial donation that can actually be of considerable help to the organization," said Jones & Son owner Jacob Jones. "If you give everybody $500, what can they really do with that?"
We're proud of our giving at Jones & Son. We're not looking for applause or recognition. We're just looking to do our part to help keep Arkansas the vibrant, honest, caring place we're blessed to call home. And if Miss Arkansas trusts Jones & Son to help her shine her brightest, what can we do to help you shine?
