Boudreaux's Jewelers
  • Boudreaux’s Jewelers was founded by Gilmore Boudreaux Sr., a local craftsman and jeweler. Its small studio operated out of the Pere Marquette building, providing service and repairs for stores throughout the Gulf South region.

  • Boudreaux’s began its religious jewelry manufacturing and plating and earned the distinction of being authorized by the Chancery, Archdiocese of New Orleans to create their exclusive designs.

  • With its success in both religious and wholesale jewelry, Boudreaux’s opened a retail storefront in the 100 block of Baronne Street. Don, Louis and Gilmore Boudreaux Jr. all joined in the family business.

  • Boudreaux’s now owned the entire building, operating retail on the 1st floor, repairs on floors 2 & 3, while Gilmore Sr. and his wife Jeanette lived on floors 4 &5.

  • Brian Boudreaux joins the family business after studying gemology at the Gemological Institute of America.

  • The business moved from its Downtown location to its current location in Old Metairie.

  • Both Christy (in 1989) and Tommy (1994) Boudreaux join the family business after studying at the Gemological Institute of America.

  • After determining the Northshore was in need of a high-end jeweler, Boudreaux’s expanded to Mandeville. Its building was purchased from Hibernia Bank and was converted to a showroom and studio.

  • Donny Boudreaux becomes the next to enter the family business, after operating a successful landscape architect company in the New Orleans area.

  • Hurricane Katrina caused the business to expand to Baton Rouge, becoming the third storefront in Louisiana. Donny relocated to manage the store’s operations.
