Montell Family History

L. A. Montell & Company was established in 1924 by my grandfather, Louis A. Montell. He began by acquiring second hand jewelry and parlaying it into a wholesale diamond brokerage and jewelry manufacturing concern. My father, Allan Erblich joined the firm when he married my mother, Joanne Montell, where for many years we serviced the community of jewelers in downtown St. Louis and the vicinity. My uncle Jack Montell expanded our reach to stores in the Midwest and when I joined the firm full time in 1978, I continued that tradition.

Montell Company is a rarity in the world of diamonds and fine jewelry. My family has continued the tradition of quality and service for over 90 years. Our customers regard our expertise and experience as invaluable resources they’ve come to rely on.

Our focus is on quality price-point products that are designed to differentiate your store from the competition and to help you make money. We are able to assist you in your custom design projects as well.

All the best,
Jon Erblich
