We Believe
Our History

Serving Shreveport-Bossier for over 27 years!

My dad, Lee, began his career in jewelry at the young age of 17.  He's been perfecting his skill ever since.  In 1996, Dad took a step of faith, and Balentine & Co Jewelers opened in downtown Shreveport.  He started with only one showcase!  We've grown a lot since then, but it's all been because of his sensible business practices and his belief in fair, honest business, as well as our amazing, loyal customers! 

We can't thank you enough for allowing us to be YOUR FAMILY JEWELERS for over 27 years, and we look forward to many more!

Your Family Jewelers

Lee took my mother’s wedding band set and made three cross necklaces for me. Each of my mother’s granddaughters received a necklace and they all loved them. All the employees went above and beyond for me.
