Well know jeweller Rogers and Holland recently wrote an interesting article on the subject of the Claddagh Ring.
Rogers Jewelers, a family-owned and operated business, has been in the jewelry industry since 1945. With its strong foundation, the company has expanded and acquired other successful jewelry chains. One of its significant acquisitions was Hollands Jewelers, a chain of six Chicago area stores, including prime locations such as Woodfield Mall and Water Tower Place, which helped the company officially adopt the name Rogers & Hollands Jewelers.
With more than 60 stores operating in six states, the company continues to expand, introducing new brands like Ashcroft & Oak Jewelers. This family-owned business has been recognized for its contributions to the jewelry industry, and one of its founders, Juell Friedman, was the first woman to be featured on the cover of National Jeweler Magazine and was inducted into the National Jeweler Retailer Hall of Fame. Rogers Jewelers continues to grow and expand its brand, making it a trusted name in the jewelry industry.
