As a young girl, Kathy Kelly Bigham dreamed of owning a jewelry store. In 1995, that dream became a reality with a 2,800 square foot store in Naples. Ten years later, the dream grew into the beautiful 8,000 foot, diamond-shaped building designed by Kathy and Gary Bigham that stands today, the Bigham Galleria.
As Bigham Jewelers grew, Kathy invited family members to join her in Naples. With husband Gary, brother, Dan Kelly and sister-in-law, Bonnie Bigham, Kathy makes sure that family members are always present to ensure the best possible customer care.
Award-winning designers like Elizabeth Locke, David Yurman, Penny Preville, Picchiotti, Bilgore, Bayco, Charles Krypell, Gurhan, Goshwara, Gumuchian and Chimento are just some of the prominent jewelry brands you will find at Bigham Jewelers. Many designers visit Bigham Jewelers for personal appearances, bringing extensive collections and spending personal time with customers.
Additionally, Bigham Jewelers offers an exceptional selection of the latest models by Rolex and Carl F. Bucherer. Customers seek out Dan Kelly, the Watch Division’s Manager, for his watch expertise and “personable, low-key ways”.
Kathy Bigham has always believed that being IN a community brings the obligation to be OF the community. Motivated by her deep love for family, she focused her charitable giving efforts on causes that serve women and children and, generally, improve people’s lives. The Boys & Girls Club, Christ Child Society, Fun Time Early Childhood Academy, Naples Alliance for Children, The Naples Players, and Baker Park, are just a few of roughly forty organizations that receive Bigham support in one way or another. Support can take the form of direct, hands-on service; sharing of Bigham Jewelers’ Conference Room for non-profit Meetings; gifts of merchandise and gift certificates for events; and donated Bigham expertise in marketing, public relations, board development and event planning/management.
With Bigham Jewelers’ 20th Anniversary close at hand, Kathy Bigham and the entire Bigham Jewelers’ family value their place in the Naples community. They recommit every day to earn anew the residents’ business and confidence.
