Our Story

Creating joyful experiences…for you!


Welcome to Mele & Co. where we create joyful experiences…for you! Our concept is simple—we want to create a unique and joyful experience for every customer. We are able to accomplish this by living our brand ideal every day, having a proud tight knit team to work with you, being the premier provider of jewelry boxes and being a family owned company with roots back to 1912! Our focus on all of this helps reinforce our commitment to customer service and our goal of creating a meaningful experience based around our product. Please read on to learn a little more about what makes Mele & Co. “America’s Jewelry Box”!


In case you haven’t guessed—our brand ideal is to create joyful experiences! What is this experience? It is the personal moment of connection you feel when you receive or give a Mele & Co. The ‘experience’ is unique for everyone—but the experience is always developed at the moment of purchase, enhanced at the moment of receipt and continued by the moments of ownership. Did you give this as a sweet 16 gift? Was it a special Father’s Day gift to hold your dad’s amazing collection of watches, a new gift for your bride to hold her treasured new rings? When the ballerina box was opened, did your granddaughter have an expression of sheer joy and amazement you could never recapture except for the picture you snapped…? These are just some examples of the Mele & Co. experience. What is yours?


Our team is small and tight. It seems like some of us have been with the company forever—but since we are over 100 years old we sometimes exaggerate! But we do have many employees that have been here for years—some over 30 years. We also have a small team overseas that works with our suppliers so that we are involved in the entire process of our product development and manufacture. Our small team is efficient and loyal. What does that mean for you? We know our product, we know our customers, we know our suppliers, we know how to make it work ….for you! Any time you need us—please reach out to our team—we are here to help!


Mele & Co. is the premier provider of jewelry boxes. We feel confident in saying this because of our brand recognition. Having the largest selection with the most categories of jewelry boxes, we sell only what we know—jewelry boxes—and we don’t clutter our selection with non related items we are not the experts on. We are able to offer you a variety of price points and cover all age ranges and we don’t try to expand out of our niche of a moderately priced gift item. We stand behind our products. Mele & Co. has been here for you for a very long time, and we plan on sticking around for much longer!


Our company was founded by Emidio Mele. Emidio came to America from Italy in hopes for a better life. As he matured and learned his trade of crafting designer jewelry display cases he decided to start his own company, way back in 1912. Our president, Raymond R. Mele, is the grandson of our founder and is the 3rd generation of the family to continue his grandfather’s legacy. We are proud to be part of an elite group of family owned companies that are over 100 years old. Our name is our brand, Mele & Co. We infuse the heritage of our family into each of our jewelry boxes and continue to offer you innovative and timeless designs for years of happiness and sentimental memories.


Our team spends countless hours deliberating details both tiny and massive to bring joy to our owners and givers! We look at every aspect—from the exterior packaging to interior linings. Our goal is continuous—to make the changes necessary to bring you joy. Some of our unique characteristics are pink designer inspired branded gift boxes, branded logo plates and inner insert cards, upscale fabric logo bag wrappings, clean and consistent inner and outer packaging, unique and exclusive designs, accents and more! Every Mele & Co. jewelry box has several of these characteristics—and many have all. Check us out…feel our joy …be a part of our experience and let us create one for you. You will not be disappointed!


Now that you know our story …what’s yours? We are happy to share our story with you, but nothing brings us more joy than hearing your stories! Over the years we have received so many emails and calls sharing these experiences—we thought, "Why not make it easier for you to share these with us?" You will notice on the home page and navigation bars the ‘My Story’ links. In this section you can share your jewelry box story with us and we will share it on our site. It can be a nostalgic story, a new story about a gift you gave, a gift you received …or maybe even a jewelry box you bought for yourself. Your story might be so old you don’t even know if it was a Mele & Co—that’s ok! Share your story of your jewelry box experience with us—any jewelry box—and your experience will be shared to bring joy to all our Mele & Co. friends! To share your story click here.

This is ‘Our Story’...the short version at least! If you want to hear more or chat with us about any part of our Mele & Co. experience—please call or email us. We are here for you and love to hear from you. We are Mele & Co…creating joyful experiences!
