Over 96 Years of Hot Springs History

For ninety six years, Lauray's has built a reputation on exquisite designs, quality, extraordinary service and one of the largest diamond selections in Arkansas. That legacy continues with new ownership in Toddy and Amanda Pitard. In November of 2018, Murphy-Pitard Jewelers of El Dorado purchased Lauray's to bring 170 combined years of expertise to Hot Springs.

Mark and Patti Fleischner passed the torch to Toddy and Amanda Pitard to combine buying power and offer an expanded jewelry selection. You will still be greeted when you walk in with a warm smile and happy greeting. With Lauray’s, stunning is standard and relationships are extraordinary. We invite you in the store to meet Toddy and Amanda and experience the same exceptional service you have come to expect at Lauray’s.

The Lauray’s staff are experts in their field, warm, friendly, and will put you at ease as they illustrate the diamond process and help you to be confident that you are making the best selection. As your friend in the jewelry business, they offer you the wand to create the most memorable and beautiful moments of your life. Get to know our style by visiting us in downtown Hot Springs and following us on Social Media.

Experience the legacy for yourself and see what has made Lauray’s the Diamond Center such a large part of the Downtown Hot Springs community for 96 years. Whether you're beginning your life with the love of your life, are ready to design your own piece of jewelry or finally getting ready to repair the item you once treasured, glide into our historic downtown location, cool-off, relax and soak up some southern comfort with our affordable selection of exquisite jewelry.
