Naperville's Oldest Jeweler


As Naperville's most cherished jewelry store, Perle Jewelers has the distinction of also being one of the oldest businesses in Naperville. For 3 generations the Perle family has been designing and creating beautiful jewelry.

At Perle Jewelers all work is done on the premises, from designing one of a kind pieces to repairs and custom creations. As true jewelry professionals, Perle Jewelers is your one-stop shop for all your jewelry needs.


For three generations, the Perle family has brought you the finest quality and service. In the early 1900's Grandfather Perle came to the United States from Switzerland, began a watch repair business and established the Perle name in the jewelry industry.

Our father, Pete Perle, learned all he could from his father, and after serving in World War II, he moved from Michigan to Chicago where he began worked in a trade shop. Pete then went on to work at the Elgin Watch Company. In the early 1950's he saved enough money to purchase Garvin Jewelers in downtown Aurora. After about 15 years in Aurora, the little town of Naperville (population 15,000) caught the eye of Pete and his wife Merce. He moved his little store to it's present location at 8 West Jefferson in downtown Naperville.

As Naperville grew, Pete Perle saw the need to continue providing the community with the finest quality jewelry and jewelry repair possible. And he continued to do just that.

Pete and Merce have since passed away, but two of their children Dean and Janine, along with associate Melissa continue the tradition, making Perle Jewelers a must see shop when visiting downtown Naperville.

With three goldsmiths on the premises, Perle Jewelers offers a full service repair department including ring sizing, pearl re-stringing, prong replacement, chain repairs, appraisals and any service your fine jewelry may need.

Custom Creations
At most jewelry stores if you want an original design you have to wait until the "designer" is "in the area", but ........we're not like most jewelry stores.

Our award winning on premises designers are always available to design a piece of jewelry especially for you and it won't be some rough sketch scribbled on a piece of paper for you to guess what the design is. We design jewelry using the latest cutting edge computer technology to show you exactly what the item will look like before we even begin crafting it. So whether you want to update a ring , remount stones from a family heirloom or simply create a wedding band to match your engagement ring, we bring your desires to life.
