History

Shellé Jewelers, Inc. opened in 1951 at 5 South Wabash, otherwise known as “5 South”, the center of the jewelry industry in Chicago.

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.

Shellé Jewelers has, on premise a certified appraiser, a graduate gemologist, master jeweler, and a knowledgeable sales staff with whom clients entrust their fine jewelry needs. Everyone you meet at Shellé Jewelers will go out of their way to exceed your expectations with unsurpassed service, workmanship and professionalism.
