W.P. Shelton established his business in Biloxi, Mississippi in 1945 after World War II.
Passing the Torch
After retiring in 1986, he sold the business to his daughter and son-in-law, Cathy and Terry Reed.
Now in our 73rd year of business, the family-owned business includes Mr. Shelton's granddaughter, Dianne Murray, a very knowledgeable sales staff, two expert bench jewelers and an experienced appraiser.
Nestled in the relaxed downtown area of Government Street in Ocean Springs, Mississippi is the Gulf Coast three generation owned and operated coastal business, Shelton Jewelers. High quality, trust, and experience are the foundation of customer satisfaction. Colorless diamonds are most exquisite to Shelton Jewelers. The Shelton family travels out of state to find selective pieces of high quality. They listen to the needs of the customer. Men's, women's, and children's jewelry and watches are found in this quaint coastal family business.
Celebrating over 70 years in business, the Gulf Coast of Mississippi trust Shelton Jewelers with their valuables. "When selling jewelry we are also selling trust with each piece to be high quality that lasts," says Cathy Reed, owner of Shelton Jewelers. She is the daughter of founder, W.P. Shelton. "We re-design or re-work old jewelry and bring it into the new millennium to design the unimaginable," she continues. Shelton Jewelers custom design mounts for gems of all types and sizes creating tiny pieces of one of a kind wearable art. Jeweler, Dianne Murray, W.P.
