Capitol Jewelers & Custom Gifts was established in June of 2018.  Lana Higginbotham & Mark Peyron joined in partnership to form Capitol Jewelers upon the retirement of their past employer, Albin Jewelers, who served this community for 70 years.  With over 60 years combined experience Lana & Mark strive to bring quality merchandise & most of all great customer service.

Lana Higginbotham 
Co-Owner/Administrator 

The best skills I bring to my job are attention to detail, creativity, and high morals. Days for me are unpredictable, and if I’m not at work you usually can’t find me. My friends and family would best describe me as stubborn, a prankster, and short. A goal of mine is to build a retirement home and spend as much time there as possible outdoors with my grandkids. I am happiest when helping others.  I care the most about our country’s veterans and animals. My personal motto is, “Live simply, live your way, love God, and enjoy the smallest moments because they are huge.”

Mark Peyron 
Co-Owner/Bench Jeweler 

A typical day for me is based on prayer and doing my best to be a friend to all that God puts on my path. My colleagues would best describe me as sometimes silly or serious but always helpful. When I am not at work, you can usually find me doing chores and taking care of the people I love. I enjoy drawing, painting, and creative cooking. My personal motto is, “All I have is today and do my best to do no harm.” 

Claudia 
Senior Sales Associate 

At work, you can usually find me taking care of customers’ needs and continuing to keep the store looking nice. I am best described as honest, friendly, and dedicated but my colleagues would probably tell you that I worry too much. A daily habit of mine is starting my day off a little late because I like my recliner and coffee time in the morning. When I am not at work, you can find me taking care of my home or working outside on landscaping on pretty days. My personal motto is, “Start the day with a good attitude.”

Hannah 
Sales Consultant/Engraving Specialist

I am happiest when I’m traveling to different places, spending time with my friends and family, or petting really cute dogs. On my days off, you can usually find me doing school work, working on art, or traveling to different places. I’m best described as methodical, funny, and witty. One of the skills that most people don’t know about me is that I can ride a bull...depending on how calm it is. 

Kimberley 
Sales Consultant/Customer Relations Specialist

You can call me Kim, Kimmy, or Kimber, but don’t call me late for supper. I would best describe myself as sleepy, helpful, and goofy. I love to read. My goal is to read at least one book a month. On my days off, I’m always at home taking care of my critters, walking, and napping (a skill I learned from my cats). I care about helping my fellow veterans and volunteering to support the United States Military. My personal motto is, “Duck!”
