Meet the team dedicated to taking care of you when you come to Shelle Jewelers
Manuel S. Millman
My name is Manny Millman, and I am the second generation at Shellé Jewelers. My father, Sheldon, was the founder and driver behind Shellé Jewelers. Following his footsteps, as president since 1987, I have expanded our products and service. We now offer extensive appraisal work, corporate gifts, Swiss watches, and custom designs. I'm always happy to welcome customers to our store. And if you're interested, it would be my pleasure to have a conversation over coffee.
Brian A. Millman
My name is Brian Millman, and I am very fortunate to be working with my dad in a business started by my grandfather. I began working here in 1998, after graduating from Michigan State University and the Gemological Institute of America, where I received my Graduate Gemologist and Graduate Jeweler degrees. My grandfather always stressed the importance of providing superior customer service and educating customers so that they could make an informed purchase. With these values as my foundation and with new technology, I have one of the best jobs in the world. I look forward to many years of working with future generations of customers.
My name is Allison Grandt. I joined Shellé Jewelers in 2011, so that makes me the “new kid” on the team. However, I’m not new to the jewelry business. I’ve worked in jewelry sales since 2001, have obtained the Graduate Diamond Diploma from the Gemological Institute of America and am currently working towards my Graduate Gemologist Degree. My passion is helping customers pick out the perfect piece of jewelry — for themselves or their loved ones.
My name is Pattanin Chaijenkit, and I joined the Shellé Jewelers family in 2004. My position is head quality control specialist, and I also assist on the sales floor. Prior to joining Shellé Jewelers, I spent five years at a very large jewelry firm as a stone sorter and quality control specialist. I wanted a smaller, more intimate work environment where I could work closely with co-workers and customers – exactly what I found here. I love the fact that each day at work is a new adventure with new challenges to conquer.
My name is Miroslau Parfieniuk, and I joined the Shellé Jewelers family in 1998. I’m an expert jewelry fabricator with over thirty years experience. Although my specialty is handmade platinum rings, I’m a master craftsman, responsible for fabricating one-of-a-kind fine jewelry pieces for Shellé Jewelers. I’m also a repair specialist, so if you have a family heirloom that needs repairing, I’ll make sure it receives the utmost care and attention to detail.
My name is Earl Elliott and I joined the Shellé Jewelers family in 2012. I’m the guy who makes sure the store looks beautiful and operates smoothly. Previously, I worked as a security expert for the Wheeling and Glenview public libraries. I was also a Park Ranger for the city of Evanston (bet you didn’t know that Evanston has park rangers!).
