Our Story Wholesale

OUR STORY

Welcome to Mele and Co where we've been helping our retailers like you help your customers organize their jewelry and accessories and find their shine 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 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 the premier provider of jewelry boxes, watch boxes, valets, charging stations and armoires in America. 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 and Co. Please read on to learn a little more.

OUR GOAL

Our goal is to help your customers stay organized and manage everyday clutter so they can 'find their shine'. In a world where life is busy, messy and at times complicated, we are thrilled to help them declutter and enjoy life.

What does it mean to 'Find your shine™'?
It means making the most of every moment...

Your best you is waiting to be opened.

Not just for the special days,
For the every days.
To put a little extra sparkle in your eye,
And someone else’s.
Fine jewelry is just fine,
To wear dressed up or down.
Because diamond studs go great with jeans and flip flops.
A riviere necklace feels just as sexy walking down the beach at sunrise,
As it does dancing the night away until the wee hours.

Don’t wait for that one special moment,
Make all of them a little more special.
Open up and ...

Find your shine™

OUR HERITAGE

Our company was founded by Emidio Mele. 12-year-old Emidio emigrated from Italy to New York City in search of a better life. Filled with imagination and possibility, he began as a young apprentice, handcrafting designer jewelry display cases until 1912 when he founded his own company – Mele Manufacturing. As craftsman, salesman and deliveryman for the business, Emido’s focus eventually shifted to designing and manufacturing jewelry boxes for home storage, allowing Mele Manufacturing to survive the Great Depression, and later thrive, through hard work and high-quality standards. Today, Emidio’s vision has come full circle as the rebranded 'Mele and Co' maintains the proud traditions of the long-standing jewelry box brand while offering a fresh take on jewelry storage solutions.
