Michele Rohn, Owner
Michele & Company Fine Jewelers is the realization of the entrepreneurial aspirations of owner Michele Rohn, an artisan designer and Jewelry Professional who studied at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. Her credentials include being a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America and an Accredited Jewelry Professional who has completed her certification for pearls along with advanced diamond classes.
Michele’s desire to create jewelry that would last for generations initially took root at her home where she created her first pieces of fine jewelry. In 1997 Michele opened Ageless Treasures in the downtown district of Lapeer, Michigan where she established a reputation as a gifted designer and bench jeweler.
The patrons of Ageless Treasures increased and the business grew. In 2006, Michele renamed the business Michele & Company Fine Jewelers and in 2011 the store relocated to their current location at 757 S. Main Street in Lapeer, where it continues to thrive.
Michele & Company Fine Jeweler’s has evolved with a focus on creating custom jewelry and on becoming Lapeer’s Diamond headquarters, with an exceptional selection of diamond and bridal jewelry.
