Krista Laraine Argento began her fine jewelry store career in sales, marketing and design in 1998, in New Smyrna Beach Florida. She has since worked for several jewelry stores, both in Florida and Vermont before starting her own business in 2011- Krista Laraine Designs. From this grew a small but devout fan base for her pieces and selections, using social media and personal referrals to spread the word. Her husband, Jayson Argento, having a background in business and retail, along with being a known artist in the community for both film and music- decided to work with Krista to open their very own jewelry store. They decided on Williston Vermont for their location- very convenient for smaller surrounding towns to access and a need for an upscale jewelry store which embodied the spirit of Vermont, while catering to community and visiting guests. Opening their doors just before Christmas of 2012, Argento Laraine began as a mostly high end fashion jewelry retailer. Throughout the year, they evolved into a store which offered an extensive bridal selection, loose diamonds, vintage and estate jewelry and hand made creations. As they continue to grow, they are always looking for ways to make sure that their clients have the best possible experience shopping with them.
In addition to owning a Fine Jewelry store, Krista and Jayson also own Lake Champlain Photography which is located in the offices attached to their jewelry store. Many portrait sessions are shot in their showroom and surrounding property.
