Where Central Illinois Gets Engaged

Since opening in 1953, Bremer Jewelry has held a special place in the heart of Central Illinois residents — and played a role in most of their special occasions. The original store, opened by Ernest J. Bremer and his wife, Jane, was a mere 800 square-foot storefront in downtown Peoria.

Bremer Jewelry, under the leadership of current owner, Ronda Daily, since 1984, has grown by providing a jewelry store where a guest can find great value in a relaxing atmosphere each and every day. Ronda’s sense of humor and passion for the business make shopping even more enjoyable. The ever-expanding Peoria location made its most recent move over 10 years ago to an 8,000 square-foot storefront located in the city’s heart at 4707 N. University Street.

In September 2005, Bremer Jewelry opened a second location in Bloomington, Ill., to serve the many guests who had often traveled to Peoria to shop “Where Central Illinois Gets Engaged™”. Since opening, the associates at Bremer Jewelry continue to make many new friends in McLean County by providing the fun and relaxed atmosphere people look for in a jewelry store.

In November 2008, Bremer Jewelry introduced the newest member of their family: Ernest J! (An animated, full cell and voiced character modeled after founder Ernest J. Bremer.) Bremer Jewelry launched their new website at the same time, with Ernest J. featured prominently, welcoming guests. Bremer Jewelry's "Unbelievable Guest Services™" became available anytime, anywhere through the convenience of 24/7 online shopping at BremerJewelry.com. Residents of Central Illinois know they can shop confidently online at Bremer Jewelry for the very finest in diamonds, engagement and wedding rings, watches, gemstone, pearl and karat gold jewelry.

The Bremer family continues to grow with new associates who bring great ideas and ways to serve their guests. Keep watching, because if there is one thing you can be sure of ... Bremer Jewelry will continue to change.
