About us


Your preferred jeweler since 1968

It all began at a kitchen table in 1968…

Our story, like many family-owned businesses, began with one man, Jack Baxter, and an interest in entrepreneurship. Since that time, Dempsey & Baxter has been recognized among the most reputable coin and jewelry families in the industry.

As a third-generation family-owned business, we know that reputation is built on solid client experiences and authenticity to our mission – to offer a unique selection of merchandise that fulfills our client’s desires. While our location has changed and the business has evolved over time, our principles remain the same – honest dealings, distinct offerings, and competitive pricing.

Conveniently located at 6032 Peach Street, Erie, PA, Dempsey & Baxter is a full-service jewelry store, offering off-street parking, complimentary personal shopping, and gift wrapping. The store showcases the highest quality engagement rings, diamonds, and wedding bands, as well as fine and fashion jewelry, and a curated collection of estate jewelry and watches.

On-site master jeweler’s complete museum quality restorations and repairs, and our two GIA Graduate Gemologists offer gemological services in our on-site gem lab. If you are in the market for custom jewelry, our jewelers and designers will work with you to create the design you are looking for through custom fabrication or computer-aided design.
