Spencer’s Jewelry was founded in 1948, by Layton and Eleanor Spencer. Their combined training in watch making and business practices enabled their store to grow into one of the most respected jewelry stores in Joliet within 40 years. For the Spencers, life seemed to revolve around the store. Their children and grand children were always involved in some aspect of the daily operation.

In 1978, the store was turned over to son LaVerne and his wife Karen. Following in his parents footsteps, LaVerne continued to provide good service and quality jewelry to the area. In the mid 80's, daughter Susan began to show an interest in the business. She began formal training to be a bench jeweler and diamond grader. In 1991, LaVerne moved the jewelry store to its present location in Shorewood.

In 2004, Susan became the new owner of Spencer’s Jewelry. Susan learned many aspects of the jewelry business from parents and grandparents. Her 20 years experience as a bench jeweler and diamond setter enables her to provide quality service to her customers. Today, Susan still greets many of the same customers that her parents and grandparents greeted many years ago. What makes Susan unique is that she is truly a third generation local business owner.
