“I want my clients to feel they have received the personal attention they desire, that they are heard and understood, and their needs are being met. I want their experience to be real, exciting, and exceeded, with professionalism.”

Lawrence started his lifelong career as a master jeweler in 1989 after being married for 2 years to his wonderful wife. His fine attention to details and steady hands has allowed him to be one of the best smiths on the east coast. He has set diamonds and gemstones, hand crafted creations, and repaired jewelry for celebrities, fashion designers, and our local community with expertise and precision.

After apprenticing for a time, he became a jeweler with Shelley’s Jewelry in downtown Hendersonville NC. He stayed with Shelley’s Jewelry until John Laughter Jewelry was founded in 2008 where he became the master gemstone and diamond setter. Today, he uses his lifelong skills and knowledgebase at Grant Laughter Jewelry to provide the best repairs possible, design advice, practical jewelry wearing techniques.

When Lawrence is not devoting himself to his passion at Grant Laughter Jewelry he enjoys finger style acoustic guitar, working on his koi pond, and woodworking.

“With great pleasure do I choose to work with Lawrence, he is a man of passion and dedication. He has a real desire to seek perfection in every piece of jewelry he works on with no exceptions. I know that when you meet Lawrence you will see that he gives his personal attention to every part of your experience.” – Grant Laughter

“The jewelers are very accommodating. They were able to adjust and fix a watch after learning that I was not going to be back in town for a couple weeks. I was prepared to leave it with them until I could return, but they put in the extra effort to get it done that day. High level of service!” - John Hickey

“…Laughter Jewelry is the ONLY jeweler for me. Quality and Service surpasses any other in the industry. I have had custom work done and the mounting is flawless. Couldn't ask for a better crew, or better selection... I have never been disappointed. Thank you all for meeting my needs and exceeding my expectations.” - Lindsay Bowen
