As the third generation of a family of Sheridan jewelers, Spencer Kraft’s roots in the industry and the community are deep. Spencer is now co-owner of Legacy Diamond & Gems. Spencer has more than 15 years of experience working in the family business of fine jewelry and service and has added to his firsthand, in-store education with multiple courses and certifications from professional industry-leading organizations.
He has completed five courses from the Gemological Institute of America and is a GIA Accredited Jewelry Professional. In 2016, Jewelers of America awarded Spencer with the JA Certified Senior Management Professional (CSMP) designation – the second and highest level of the Jewelers of America Professional Management Certification Program. The certification is the Jewelers of America’s recognition that consumers can be confident and secure in trusting the skills and knowledge that Spencer offers. Spencer’s career has also included time working in the telecommunications field and previously owning his own small business.
Spencer is excited to draw on his love for the jewelry trade and his family history as a third-generation jeweler. His vision is to create for valued customers a new, modern fine jewelry shopping experience at the Kraft family’s storied location on Main Street.
Spencer, a Wyoming native, also is active in the Sheridan community and has a particular passion for supporting the local downtown area. He has volunteered with Downtown Sheridan Association since 2010 and chairs the Third Thursday Street Festival and Historic Downtown Promotions committees. Spencer also served as president for the CHAPS Equine Assisted Therapy board in 2016.
When he’s not volunteering or at the shop (and admittedly, those two pursuits don’t leave time for much else!), Spencer travels as often—and as far across the globe–as possible while also focusing on his better half plus his friends and family.
