7 Generations of Experience in the Art of Jewelry
*Winner of 2009 Daily Herald Readers` Choice: Best Jeweler
In 1947 Alfred G. Mitchell left Alexandria Egypt and came to New York, then straight to Arlington Heights, a small town of not more that 6,000. He spent his first years working in the area; then he decided to join the army. After four years and an honorable discharge, he was trained in watch repair and started working for Simon Brothers. Joining this experience and his experience in jewelry from working in his father`s store, he went to C.D. Peacock for five years as a jewelry designer, service customer`s repairs and train other employees. From there he became the number one jewelry salesman in the country at Sears Roebuck jewelry department in Golf Mill. In 1969, he explained to Nicholas Lattof that if a shopping center were built in downtown Arlington Heights, he would be the first one to rent a store.
In a time when we are seeing many jewelry stores and other shops closing, it feels very good to be blessed with a jewelry store that is still growing. In our location just south of the train station, on the corner of Dunton & Davis, we do everything from repairs to designing and manufacturing; nearly every step and process is done in our own shop. We always wanted to do our own casting, but our other stores shop facilities were too small. With our last move, we became one of the largest jewelers in the area. Also, our shop size almost tripled, allowing us to add more benches and equipment, for wax carving, casting and mold making. We now can make rubber molds for duplication of our custom made items, or your heirlooms. We also still do jewelry repairs, stone setting, custom design, and wide verity of fine jewelry, gifts for your home, and custom corporate gifts.
