Mitchell's Jewelers was founded by Mitchell Dickler as Mitchell's Jewelry Repair Corporation in 1985.
Mitchell began as an apprentice jeweler in the fall of 1979 in a well established jewelry store in Randallstown, MD. Here, Mitchell learned the craft of jewelry repair while also gaining experience in jewelry sales.
Years later Mitchell moved on in his career to a wholesale jewelry repair shop, where he continued to train, but more importantly learned the value of high quality workmanship, realizing that the finest quality repair is one that the customer cannot see.
The company then merged with a jewelry designer in Pikesville, MD. As part of the merger, Mitchell began to learn about custom design and fabrication.
Mitchell realized that he needed knowledge of stone setting - so he decided to attend the Gemological Institute of America, Advanced Stone Setting Course. He then moved to California to seek more knowledge in his craft. After a year in California, Mitchell was offered an opportunity to come back to Maryland and set up his own repair shop. Thus the birth of Mitchell's Jewelry Repair.
Mitchell's began by focusing on wholesale jewelry repair. He rented a bench from a jeweler he previously worked for, doing their jewelry repairs, as well as the work for other local jewelry stores.
In 1990, Mitchell moved into a Pikesville Jewelry center, where he was able to expand, hiring a second and third jeweler. This also enabled Mitchell to work with private customers as well. It was not long before Mitchell became well known as a master of his craft, a jewelry repair specialist. His reputation continued to grow, and people from the Mid-Atlantic area sought him out for his impeccable skill and quality repair.
In the fall of 1991, Mitchell began to look to the future of his business. With his ever increasing following of private customers, and the influence of his wife's retail background, it was an easy progression to the next logical step - a retail store. Mitchell and Lisa opened Mitchell's Jewelers in the Alley Shops, where they flourished and grew for 15 years.
In the spring of 2008 Mitchell's Jewelers moved to Club Centre, our current location. It is here that Mitchell's continues to grow with a commitment to perfection as well as dedication to improvements in quality through state of the art technology.
