After 20 years at its expansive space on Harlem Avenue near Belmont in Chicago, Arezzo Jewelers has found a perfect fit at its new location on North Avenue in Elmwood Park.

“We needed an update, and we found out that it was easier in the long run to create a new space for ourselves,” says Michael Spilotro, who co-owns the jewelry store with his wife, Jeannie.

The move also ushers in a greater role for the Spilotros’ son, Vincent. With a graduate gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America and an apprenticeship with a master jeweler under his belt, he’s able to bring 21st-century technology to the ancient art of jewelry making and design.

The city of Arezzo is the gold capital of Italy, and its namesake store is known for crafting and selling gold and other jewelry with an Italian flair. The family makes regular trips to Italy in search of new merchandise.

Among the store’s offerings are earrings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, chains, religious medals, and engagement and wedding rings. They also specialize in certified natural and human-made loose diamonds.

The Spilotros are the area’s official Pandora jewelry retailer, and they carry a host of other name brands, including Luvente, Mars, Benchmark and Savoia.

Arezzo Jewelers is located at 7544 W. North Ave., Suite 1, Elmwood Park, IL 60707. For details, call 708-716-3626 or click here.
