Meet The Family
Overstreet’s Jewelry is a family-owned business that began when Ralph and Belle Overstreet came to Arkansas in November 1948 to attend the wedding of her younger sister. Ralph found a watch repair shop on the Bentonville square that was for sale and bought it on the spot. They then moved “back home” and stayed to build their business. They have both passed on, but their vision lives on.
Ralph and Belle's oldest son, Don, is the current president of Overstreet's Jewelry. He is a Certified Gemologist with the American Gem Society and is also certified by the Jewelers of America in Sales and Management. Don has been with Overstreet’s since August 1977, after spending 7 years as a science teacher at Bentonville High School. He is married to his wife, Sue Ann, whom he married after he was released from the Army where he served as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Vietnam War. Together they have 2 children, 11 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren.
Doug is a graduate of the Texas Institute of Gemology and is a Master Jeweler. He brought ten years of experience to Overstreet’s when he joined the store in 1994. Doug is married to his wife, Kathy, with whom he shares 2 children and is also a grandfather to 1 little boy.
