The History of Crown


Crown Jewelers has been a vital part of Historic Downtown Staunton since its opening in 1960. Carl Durham opened the business after working for other jewelers in Staunton. He is still remembered fondly by his former customers.  Joe and Evy Harman bought the store from him in the early 1980’s. They renovated and updated the interior and continued to focus on customer service and commitment to excellence. The former owners are still active in downtown Staunton.



Dana Flanders bought Crown Jewelers on April Fool’s Day 1997, and she has enjoyed every day as she sells the very finest jewelry and gifts to the people of Staunton, Virginia and beyond.  Becky Corns joined Dana as a partner at Crown Jewelers on January 1, 2015.  Becky has worked at Crown since 2005 and is looking forward to helping provide the finest jewelry-buying experience in the Shenandoah Valley.
