Meet the Team
Our professional, skilled staff includes our designer Michele, sales associates, and bench jewelers educated through the Gemological Institute of America.
Michele Rohn, Owner
Michele & Co Fine Jewelers is the result of the entrepreneurial dreams and aspirations of Michele Rohn, an artisan designer and graduate from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. Michele’s desire to create functional art jewelry that would last for generations deepened as she designed and crafted fine jewelry pieces out of her home. In 1997, Michele opened a quaint retail store, Ageless Treasures, in the downtown district of Lapeer, Michigan where Michele’s reputation grew as a gifted designer and bench jeweler.
The patrons of Ageless Treasures increased as Michele grew the business and developed her skills and product lines. In 2005, Michele established a rebrand of her business to Michele & Company Fine Jewelers. Despite tough economic times of the past decade, Michele & Company held its own. In 2011, Michele strategically relocated to a 2,000 square foot show room on Lapeer’s Main Street where the business is exponentially increasing in exposure and success.
Michele & Company’s status continues to evolve into a renowned iconic gem due to Michele’s ability to build her bridal and diamond brand. There is no distance that will prevent Michele from being the best fine jeweler for her clients. In 2012, she traveled to Antwerp, Belgium, the diamond capital of the world, to purchase personal special order diamonds for her customers who were seeking the highest diamond quality and standards.
Michele’s credentials include becoming a graduate of the Gemology Institute of America (GIA). She has completed her certification for Pearls and Pearl Grading along with advanced diamond classes.
Michele’s heart’s desire is to serve her family, clients, friends, and community and maintaining quality relationships and customer contact. She enjoys her morning quiet time with a good read and cup of tea.
Michele is married 25 years to Glen who also shares in the business development and sales at Michele & Company. They have four adult children and six grandchildren whom they love spending their free time.
Michele’s hobbies include traveling, hiking, biking, swimming, and walks with the grandchildren.
