Acori Diamonds & Design are well known as the jewelry retailer to go to in Friendswood, Texas.
Owner Billy Stagner has always worked well with his hands. From his first job manicuring lawns, to his carpentry apprenticeship, his natural ability to work well with his hands was apparent from a very young age. Billy began to work as a jeweler and learned how to repair and design jewelry with his childhood friend who was also a jeweler. Billy's natural talent started his career as a Master Jeweler as he continued his education with the Gemological Institute of America. He was awarded a Certificate in Diamonds in May of 1991, as well as a Certificate in Colored Gems in July of 1992 and he continues to perfect his skills by learning new techniques and always staying up to date on the latest jewelry trends.
Determined, Billy's passion for jewelry led him to open his own store when he was only seventeen. He established his store in 1975 near the Wedgewood subdivision entrance on the corner of 2351 and Blackhawk. In 1979, Billy had the opportunity to expand by relocating to the heart of Friendswood when he moved his business to the Stonesthrow Shopping Center.
Billy could not carry out his dream alone and in 1983, Billy met Connie. She began to work for the store in 1984 and it did not take long for them to realize that they were made for each other. They were married in March of 1985. Their passion for jewelry has helped them to become a long-lasting business. However, their love of helping people celebrate those special moments in life, from graduations to engagements, has allowed them to become a special part of the Friendswood community.
We are so proud to welcome Billy and Connie into the Preferred Network of exceptional Jewelers. They look forward to welcoming you into their store.
