Our story

Over a century of quality

In 1871, Solomon Joseph opened our first store in downtown Des Moines. He quickly gained a reputation as a quality craftsman and a meticulous timekeeper.

Over the years, we have seen many trends and styles, but have never lost sight of our dedication to customer service and honest work.

Our customers say it best

Trisha was amazing! I live in Oregon and couldn’t shop in person but she took the time to send me all the information I needed to be comfortable making my decision. She was very friendly, worked around my schedule (two time zones away), and answered every question I had. She sent me a lot of information, pictures, videos, comparisons of different pieces, everything I needed. I would definitely recommend working with her and shopping at Josephs.
