“In the jewelry business, we are part of the happiest moments of your life.”
At Shelley’s Jewelry we’re no stranger to special moments. In sixty years, we’d like to think we’ve been part of creating some truly extraordinary memories.
After all, we recognize that a diamond isn’t just a piece of jewelry; it is a symbol of love and the promise of memories to come. At Shelley’s Jewelry you’ll see a group of warm, welcoming people who still work with each customer to hand-pick diamonds, the perfect gift or engagement. We’re not a mass-producing jewelry retailer, but a host of jewelry specialists, experienced goldsmiths, and certified gemologists, passionate in their diamond expertise. And we’re equally passionate about helping our customers find diamonds of excellent value that do not necessarily cost more.
From North Dakota to North Carolina
It’s a long way from the wind-swept plains of North Dakota and the hometown of our founder, Keith Shelley to the mountains of North Carolina. Over 60 years ago, Keith came home from World War II to open a watch repair store in the small town near his birthplace. Years later, as a certified gemologist and diamond expert in his own right, he established Shelley’s Jewelry to the mountains of North Carolina. In the years since, we’ve has grown to include stores in Hendersonville, Asheville, and Waynesville, NC. Our co-owners, John Laughter and Stan Shelley, are continuing the second generation of Shelley’s fine traditions.
“The name of Shelley’s is much more important than any money we’d ever make. That’s what the business was founded upon.”

Jewelry sold at auction has the advantage of being seen by the most highly-desired buyers around the world. In contrast, jewelry sold in-store has extremely limited exposure. Shelley’s Auction finds the best collectors and buyers for highly sought pieces of jewelry, bringing many times more value through sale at auction than in-store. Additionally, Shelley's buys and sells your sterling silver, fine collectibles and antiques.
