The History of Satterlee Jewelry Repair & Design Center

Originally known as “Satterlee Bros.,” Satterlee Jewelry Repair & Design Center was founded in 1941 by Floyd & Lloyd Satterlee in downtown Redmond. Originally the business focused on clock and watch repairs, but quickly grew to include minor jewelry repairs. This led the pair to expand and include retail sales of jewelry.

In the 1950s, Floyd Satterlee moved to Prineville with his family, where he opened a second location of the family-run business. Eventually, Floyd’s son, Doyle, opened a third location in Madras in 1961. Then in January of 1989, Floyd’s grandson, Sean, took over operations of the last remaining branch in Madras.

Along with his wife Keri, they grew the business, expanded the repair shop to encompass two jewelers, changed the name to Satterlee Jewelers, and began another era of the same simple principles of friendship and good quality service that Floyd and Lloyd had established years before. Sean even went on to garner two coveted regional Jewelry Design Awards for his jewelry designs in 1995 and 1997.

In December 2003, the business came full circle and returned to Redmond after a more than 30-year absence. Ironically, the new location of Satterlee Jewelry Repair & Design Center is just several blocks north of the previous business location. In keeping in touch with their roots, the new store incorporated a taste of the Old West with a themed decor reminiscent of the gold mining days. Contemporary jewelry styles and modern techniques blend nicely here with pick axes, gold pans, mining hammers, powder kegs, and more. The Satterlees enthusiastically invite you to come for a visit, but remind you that there is “no spittin’, swearin’, or gun-slingin’ allowed!”
