Our Cause

All to Mary was founded to provide a way to share our store with others, and to convey our love of Our Lord’s Mother through our consecration to her. Since we are consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, all of our prayers, works, joys and sufferings are given to her to present to her Divine Son. Our work is given through Her Immaculate Heart, for the intentions of His Sacred Heart.  At the same time, we want to help provide for the needs of our beloved Catholic Carmelite sisters. A portion of every internet sale is given to the sisters. Deo Gratias!

Our Story

About Founders

"Thomas James and Kasia are Traditional Catholic Christians who own and operate Thomas James and Bechtold Jewelry, the oldest jewelry company in Sioux Falls and South Dakota. Established in 1902 by the Bechold family, the company has been providing quality jewelry services to customers for over a century.

Thomas began his career in the wholesale jewelry industry, working with his father Larry at F&H Private Jewelers, a company founded in 1950. Under his father's guidance, Thomas learned the art of jewelry design, repair, and custom creation, eventually becoming a master jeweler and hand engraver himself. In 1995, after his father's passing, Thomas and his brother took over the family business.

In 2014, Thomas received Ecclesiastical Approbation to work on Sacred objects and relics, expanding his expertise in the field. In 2017, Thomas parted ways with his brother and continued to focus on wholesale, manufacturing, and design work while also entering the world of retail jewelry at Bechtold Jewelry. To honor the legacy of the Bechtold family, Thomas added his name to the business, now known as Thomas James and Bechtold Jewelry, maintaining the family-friendly atmosphere that has been a hallmark of the company for decades.

Kasia, originally from Poland, moved to the U.S. in 1989 during a time of political unrest and communism in her home country. When things settled there, she traveled frequently to Poland, building relationships with local artisans who create the unique products she brings to the U.S. market, including exclusive crystal designs. Together, Thomas and Kasia have four children and four grandchildren.

As Traditional Catholic Christians, Thomas and Kasia have dedicated their business to the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of Our Lady of Częstochowa, which is reflected in the name of their online site, 'All to Mary.' The couple is committed to continuing the rich legacy of their family business while offering quality jewelry services and unique products to their customers."
