Shockey Jewelers, founded in 1937, is a third generation family-owned business located in historic downtown Elgin, Illinois. Peter Shockey, GIA Graduate Gemologist, is the current owner.

Shockey Jewelers, a pillar of the Elgin business community, takes pride in preserving the traditions that have successfully taken the store from the 1930’s into the new millennium. They remain committed to providing quality merchandise and the highest level of craftsmanship and service at a fair price. A fine jewelry decision can be overwhelming, so they take the time to educate their customers and guide them in making confident purchases. They believe that trust forms the foundation of any positive relationship and that it must be earned through every business transaction.

While they preserve our old-fashioned values and cherish our collection of classic jewelry designs and heirloom estate pieces, they also embrace the future with progressive customized design ideas, trend-setting giftware, and unique one-of-a-kind treasures that Peter Shockey hand selects while traveling the world.

Shockey Jewelers is proudly affiliated with respected jewelry organizations including the Illinois Jewelers Association, Jewelers of America, and The Gemological Institute of America. Shockey Jewelers supports “Truth in Pricing”. Peter Shockey has served on the Illinois Jewelers Association Board of Directors for nine years and is Past President. He has been an active member of Rotary International since 1990. As a family-owned Fox Valley business, Shockey Jewelers supports many local organizations and charities.
