About Us

The Northwest's Premier Designer Jeweler

Shopping for jewelry or a wedding set should be a pleasure. At Ken Walker Jewelers, you’ll find fourth-generation jewelers, a wide selection of choices and a warm Gig Harbor welcome.

We’re locally owned and committed to our community. Our staff is known for their high level of service. Customers often come here for a wedding set and leave as our friends, returning for anniversary, graduation and “just fun” gifts for years to come.

We stand behind our jewelry, the majority of which is made in the USA. We’re members of the Independent Jewelers Organization, which gives us access to the best diamonds, designs and prices. You can be assured of high quality at Ken Walker Jewelers.

You’ll find us in the landmark gazebo building off Pt. Fosdick Road, with plenty of free parking. When you come, enjoy a fresh baked cookie and say “hi” to our shop dog Mackz!
