Strickler’s celebrates 40th anniversary

Craig and Tammy Strickler, owners of Strickler Jewelers, located at 3210 S. LaFountain St. in Kokomo, are celebrating both their 40th year in the jewelry business and their 40th wedding anniversary this year.

It all began when Craig and Tammy found summer employment at a South Bend jewelry store during summer break from Ball State University in 1973. She worked in the office and Craig was on the sales floor.

“We got married on Dec. 15 of that year. The last 40 years have just zoomed by,” said Craig. Now they are celebrating their ruby anniversary.

With Tammy’s roots in Kokomo, the couple decided to open their first store on Dixon Road in 1985.

“Kokomo has been very good to us. We like to support the community and schools. They have given us so much,” they said.

The market has made alternative metals, like titanium and tungsten, especially popular for men.

Tammy and Craig take pride in carrying exclusive designs and Tammy works personally with designers to create custom wedding ring sets, including using blue, black, yellow, green, and the new spicy brown diamonds. It is important to create something unique for their customers and friends.
