About Us
Mills Jewelers - Engagement Rings and Jewelry Lockport Ny

We’re All About Relationships…

Growing them, celebrating them, honoring them. We’ve been doing it for 91 years.

Mills Jewelers opened in the bustling little canal town of Lockport, New York in 1929.

It wasn’t long before business began to prosper and Mills Jewelers needed a bigger location. In 1932, Mills moved one block west next to Williams Brothers, Lockport’s most prestigious department store. The store soon became Lockport’s leading jeweler.

In 1973, much of old Lockport was demolished under a program called Urban Renewal and Mills was forced to move. While many stores opted for locations in the outskirts of the city, Mills recognized the heritage of the Downtown area and on a Sunday afternoon in July, rolled the safe and all the jewelry down the sidewalk to a new location, half a block away.

Mills Jewelers represents the life long efforts of local ownership. Generations of Western New Yorkers started their family with a symbol of love from Mills Jewelers. We understand the intimate role we play in the tender moments of our customers lives. That’s a powerful responsibility and a great honor. We’re on a mission of love. With each piece of jewelry that we create, with each of the lives that we touch, we focus our expertise and passion to achieve an experience beyond all your expectations.
