The Only New Mexico Master Gemologist in Retail.

I founded Shelton Jewelers in Albuquerque in 1984. As the store has grown, it has been my goal to emphasize ethics, education and customer service. These tenets are the driving forces that I believe show through in all that we do.

In our business, in order to be ethical we have to be educated. That is why we employ one Master Gemologist Appraiser ASA myself, two Certified Gemologist Appraisers AGS Graduate Gemologists GIA. We invest in continuing education for our staff because I believe expertise is essential to customer service. Not to mention we are title holders of the elite American Gem Society, where we are tested and re-accredited annually.

We have the equipment on site to help you understand all of the factors that determine a gems value. Most importantly we are committed to promoting the highest ethical standards in order to give you confidence and satisfaction.

The App was totally innovative and a great way to show customers how they actually save money by buying local at Shelton. Shelton Jewelers is my jewelry store of choice - I prefer shopping at Shelton because you’re able to see the jewelry first hand and with your own eyes. Not so much on the internet. The Shelton crew provides honest, friendly and remarkable service. The App will add reassurance in an ever changing internet world. You should buy clothes online, never jewelry and that’s why I buy from Shelton

Imagine my surprise this morning when I found -- sitting on my dining table -- beautifully wrapped gifts from my sweet, loving (and generous) husband!

I am so proud and pleased to say that my sweet Gary has THE best shopping taste to pick out THE most amazing pearls I’ve ever seen. Kathy, I know you’ve seen these pearls in your store so you know their amazing beauty. WOW, WOW, WOW!

My thanks to my precious Gary for shopping at Shelton Jewelers.

Thank you, Sweetheart for your gift of love of these beautiful pearls, and thank you, Eric, and thank you Kathy for your beautiful jewelry and your amazing classy store.

I was in the market for an engagement ring and did a lot of looking around at online retailers. I decided to stop in at Shelton to see if my experience could be any better. I was blown away with the quality of product and customer service I received.

My fiancé and I went to Shelton for an engagement ring, and were very impressed with how it all turned out. We were re-purposing some diamonds given to us by her grandmother, so we were starting from scratch in terms of design. Elliott gave us a great starting point, showed us a good amount of various examples for every little detail, and ended up designing the perfect ring. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out, and would recommend Shelton Jewelers to anyone in need of their services.

I couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience and most importantly my ring is stunning! I get compliments on it all the time, from the design to the way it sparkles. Elliot has designed other things for me from rings to necklaces and I have always been more than happy.

We have be coming to Shelton since we moved here 3 years ago. They have always taken good care of us and our jewelry and watches.
Specific case: I had some issues the past year with my Philip Stein batteries. Eventually the watch had to be sent back to Philip Stein for repair but Shelton didn't even charge me for all the batteries I went through while trying to figure out the problem. They are all about making the customer happy, which is why we continue to go back.

Shelton Jewelers rocks our socks off. The owners and their staff are always professional and friendly, they are knowledgeable and attentive, and there is always a key focus on educating clients on their purchases more than a pressure to buy. They are the perfect fit for my personality when shopping for something that you will hold dear for the rest of your life. They made our wedding day special and they have made every other jewelry purchase special as well. We will be back and we will tell everyone we know to visit! 🙂

My experience with Shelton Jeweler's was the best have had in my life time with any company. Elliott Shelton took the time and effort to really capture my thoughts and ideas in the custom engagement ring he designed and created for me. The communication through out the process was bar non the best in the business. If your looking for a true professional and trusted consultant on your next customized design, then look no where else as Elliott Shelton is the best in the business.
