Description:
In 1951 Sheldon M. Millman founded Shellé Jewelers on the 6th floor of 5 South Wabash in Chicago. He opened his store with an extremely small collection of unique high-end jewelry, but his main mission was to provide superior customer service. His customers would wait weeks to take a trip to go and see Shelle personally. His smile was as warm as his personality and he had the ability to make each customer feel as though were the most important customer that he had. As his customer base grew his inventory became more select and specialized for his clientele. Shelle believed in educating his customers and giving them only the highest quality merchandise. It was this passion for fine jewelry that Shelle' Jewelers was built on.

In 1968 Manuel S. Millman, Shellé and Lillian's son, started working for Shellé Jewelers, Inc. Shellé was very proud that the second generation was now furthering the growth of the business. Manny graduated from Columbia College and was taking home study courses from the Gemological Institute of America. In 1973 Shellé Jewelers, Inc. moved from 5 South Wabash to 840 North Michigan Avenue. This is the location where Manny expanded the inventory to include watches and giftware. In 1989 Shellé Jewelers moved once again to a northern suburb of Chicago called Glencoe. Manny built this location to in order to become a full service jewelry store. Shellé and Manny's love for jewelry and gemstones motivated them to put a major emphasis on creating an in house custom design and repair center. Sheldon passed away in 1993 leaving his son and grandson a rich legacy of knowledge, ethics and a passion for fine jewelry and gemstones.

In 1998 the third generation entered the family business. Brian A. Millman graduated from Michigan State University and also received his Graduate Jeweler, Graduate Gemologist, Appraisal and Precious Metals Degrees from the Gemological Institute of America. With his grandfather's ideals and his father's ideas Brian has made the custom design and repair center the heart of Shellé Jewelers. With an expanded inventory of designer brands and fine Swiss timepieces Shellé would be very proud of the store that bears his name.
