iekman’s Jewelry is a family owned and operated retail and repair shop located in Alexandria since 1980. Kyle Diekman began the store alongside his Dad but two short months after opening Gordon Diekman had a stroke and at the age of 19, Kyle was left to run the entire business himself. Kyle never gave up the dream and has been in business ever since. In 2019, Brandi, his 2nd eldest granddaughter, decided to start full time as the store manager. Kyle & Brandi are happy to be located in Alexandria -- a place with great support for locally run businesses.
