Our Story


Welcome to Mele & Co. where we’ve been helping our family and friends like you organize your jewelry and accessories since 1912. Being organized is how Our Story began. We appreciated the power of staying sorted and keeping life in order long before large organization outlets and storage stores were a thing. And 100+ years later, we haven’t stopped! Whether it’s your heirloom jewelry, a growing watch collection or just everyday accessories, we believe everything should have a place. Because we know just how great it feels to be organized!

We are known as America’s Jewelry Box, the premier provider of jewelry boxes, watch boxes, valets, charging stations and armoires in America. As part of a small community of U.S. family-owned businesses over 100 years old, our focus on our story and roots helps reinforce our commitment to customer service and our goal of providing meaningful experiences and organization around every Mele & Co. Please read on to learn a little more about what makes us “America’s Jewelry Box”!


Our goal is to help you stay organized and manage everyday clutter so you can feel on top of things and enjoy the “experience” a Mele & Co. provides. In a world where life is busy, messy and at times complicated, we are thrilled to help declutter your life and enjoy this experience. What is the Mele & Co. experience? It is the personal moment of connection you feel when you receive or give a Mele & Co. or just that moment of sheer joy felt by having all your jewelry in its place.

Our company was founded by Emidio Mele. Emidio came to America from Italy in hope of a better life. As he matured and learned his trade of crafting designer jewelry display cases, he decided to start his own company in 1912. Our president, Raymond R. Mele, is the grandson of our founder and is the third generation of the family to continue his grandfather’s legacy. We are proud to be part of an elite group of U.S. 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 organizers and continue to offer you innovative and timeless designs for years of happiness, organization and sentimental memories.


Our products are designed to provide your jewelry, watch, and accessory items the solution to help you feel organized, smart, and stylish. Our U.S. based team spends countless hours deliberating details both tiny and massive to bring organization and happiness to our customers. We look at every aspect, from the exterior packaging to interior linings. We continuously strive to make the changes necessary to provide a meaningful experience and keep our products functional for organizing so you will continue to remember us for your jewelry organization needs.
