Timothy Grant Jewelry is the namesake of owner, Tim. A jeweler since 1985, Tim is an award-winning Goldsmith and Platinumsmith expert who specializes in the design and craftsmanship of one-of-a-kind pieces. He does not shy away from the exceptional. Quite the opposite, in fact, as Tim is especially passionate about non-symmetrical designs and those with unusual colors and textures. Tim built this company with family and precision in mind. You are in good hands with Tim by your side in creating both classic and unique designs.
Lisa (who just so happens to be Tim’s wife) designs the art for Timothy Grant Jewelry’s social media and weekly emails. Her most important job is as a mom, but she spends a lot of time working behind the scenes. In fact, she is currently perfecting her one-woman act as the head of TGJ’s marketing, social media and administration departments as well as heading up Shane's Foundation. You might even see Lisa filling in at one of the stores from time to time. Whether in store or not, Lisa is passionate about creating a comfortable, family-oriented atmosphere for guests and employees alike.

As he got older (and left behind his rock star and radio personality dreams), it became apparent that Tim’s passion was in jewelry. He attended jewelry school at Gem City in Quincy, Illinois. Tim went on to an apprenticeship back home in St. Louis. He later relocated to the Chicago area and became the jeweler and manager of a family-owned shop. He was responsible for all of the goings-on, including custom design, shop work and repairs. His efforts helped that small business grow into a larger location with multiple jewelers, and he learned a great deal about owning a business in the process.
Taking with him the knowledge he had earned and the value of a family-owned business, Tim changed jobs, working as a part time jeweler for Rainbow Design Jewelers. He hoped to use his extra time to start his own company. If you know Tim, you know that he is great at seizing opportunity. In 1991, Timothy Grant Jewelry was established out of Tim’s home. He took on trade work while separately gaining personal customers. It was hugely important to Tim for his business to have a family-owned feel with the personal touches of a small business.
His hard work paid off, and in 1997, he hired two employees and took over a small independent Lake Zurich jewelry store, renaming it “Timothy Grant Jewelry”. At this point, Tim discontinued all trade work and began concentrating completely on his personal customer base. Timothy Grant Jewelry remained at this location for ten years. During that time, Tim served on the board of directors for the Lake Zurich Chamber of Commerce. Timothy Grant Jewelry would later win several Lake Zurich Chamber of Commerce awards and other jewelry awards.
In 2006, Timothy Grant Jewelers doubled its space, moving to a new Lake Zurich location. It added a new showroom, new designers and watch lines. Soon after, in 2010, Tim purchased Rainbow Design Jewelers, and thus, a second location emerged.
The focus and energy of Timothy Grant Jewelry has never swayed from that of family. From its family-owned origin—Tim’s wife Lisa, daughter Darby, and their two dogs work at the stores—to its goal of helping other families make their occasions as special as possible, family is at the heart of the entire company. The longtime staff members have become family as well, and they are eager to meet you all! Come on in and visit the Timothy Grant Jewelry family today.
At Timothy Grant Jewelry, we provide fair-priced, quality jewelry with exceptional service. Our experts have years of experience in custom design and sales, and they are passionate about making each guest’s experience special and comfortable.
