Our Story

Engels Jewelry Co. was founded by father & son, Dennis & Mark Engels. Dennis Engels previously owned and operated Richard Engels Jewelers, a well-known name in the jewelry industry that closed its doors in January 2018, after 88 years of service to the Grand Rapids area. Dennis’ father, Richard Engels, had opened Richard Engels Jewelers in 1930.



Engels Jewelry Company has a select group of diamond suppliers that demonstrate a robust chain of custody protocol for their diamonds and have the ability to track and segregate diamonds by origin.

These suppliers are required to source diamonds that originate from specific mine operations or specific countries that have demonstrated their commitment to follow internationally recognized labor, trade, and environmental standards.

Engels also offers lab-created and recycled diamonds, both of which require no new mining.

Certified Diamonds

For a collection of diamonds, Engels Jewelry Co. includes the GIA, EGL, and IGI Diamond Origin Report to help trace the diamond from its source to its final polished state by uniquely leveraging advanced scientific analysis to deliver technical rough-to-polish diamond matching. These diamond certification companies collect and analyze physical measurements, spectroscopic data, and imaging of the diamond as a rough crystal before it is cut and polished. A unique identification number is assigned to the rough diamond. They later use this data to scientifically match the polished diamond to the original rough crystal it came from.


Engels Jewelry Company recycles everything from paper products to precious metals. They send old gold and silver to refineries to be remade into jewelry. If you have jewelry at home that you do not wear you can sell it and Engels will recycle it for you.

Why the lion?

Lions are a symbol of excellence, strength, passion, and loyalty. At Engels Jewelry Company they focus on all of these attributes. They strive to provide excellent service to their clients.The quality of jewelry they make is exceptional and they are passionate about their customer’s designs and jewelry and are loyal to their needs. Engels Jewelry Company chose the lion as their logo to remind them of these great characteristics.

“I have had the best experience at Engels and highly recommend them for all of your jewelry needs. They did an amazing job redesigning/upgrading my already existing wedding ring. They do all of the work in house, so you don’t have to worry about your jewelry being lost in shipping. The staff is amazing, so helpful, and they listen to your wants. If there is one jewelry store you going to go to…make it Engels!”

“My family (siblings, parents, grandparents…) and I have only gone to Richard Engels Jewelers for any jewelry needs/wants ????. Since changing hands, which is now “Engels Jewelry Company,” we have not been disappointed. So many of the same friendly faces and a beautiful selection of jewelry. This will still be our family’s family jeweler. I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.”

Mark and the crew treat you with quality service and smiles. I defiantly trust my treasures with them and know they come back in excellent condition! A+ Family owned and generations in business. Hey, even his uncle has his own business repairing clocks???? One of the finest jewelry stores to shop from.”

“I had a horrible experience with Zales where they ruined my rings. I came to Engels not knowing what they would do. Not only did they offer to fix my rings they charged a very reasonable price. They are professional and friendly! I recommend them to anyone who wants to buy high quality jewelry.”

Jessica Cesarek

“Engels made ring shopping so easy. Robin was super helpful throughout the entire process of custom designing both wedding and engagement bands. For my wedding band, I just brought in a picture for inspiration, and Engels created a custom piece to fit perfectly with my engagement band. Engels also ensures you are completely satisfied with the design by providing a CAD picture and a wax model that require your approval prior to creating the pieces. They really want to make sure you are happy with your purchase, and they didn’t pressure us at all. I would highly recommend them for any of your jewelry needs!”
