The founder, the late Sheldon M. Millman, dreamed of having a jewelry store where the finest and most knowledgeable master craftsmen worked to create custom handcrafted designs. And they did.
In 1972, Shellé Jewelers moved to 840 N. Michigan Avenue, a prestigious address on Chicago’s “Mag Mile”, where they continued to build on their fine reputation for superior customer service and unsurpassed workmanship.
Jump to 1987 – the Michigan Avenue building was going to be torn down to make room for a new high-rise. Shellé’s son, Manny, became president of Shellé Jeweler, and the store moved out to the suburbs, opening at 666 Vernon Avenue in Glencoe. The business thrived there, in the heart of downtown Glencoe, for nineteen years, until 2006, when they moved to a free standing building at 322 Skokie Blvd in Northbrook. A smart move, the Northbrook located offered great exposure on a tremendously busy street.
Today, the Millman family continues to build on Shellé’s dream, carrying on the family tradition — a full-service jewelry store where customers enjoy a warm welcome, superior customer service and fine jewelry featuring unsurpassed workmanship.
