History of Jules Madere

In 1948,  Master jeweler, Jules Madere opened a jewelry  repair and custom design shop in an office  located on Third street in downtown Baton Rouge.  What started  in a second  floor  office grew to  become the oldest family  owned jewelry store in Baton Rouge. 

In 1989, Jules retired  handing  the reins over to his son Wayne Madere. Wayne  began apprenticing his father at the age of 13 becoming  a Master jeweler himself. 

Over the years, we 've had some interesting clients. Elvis Presley, Paul Newman, "Dizzy" Dean, and production companies needing a custom piece for a film.
