our story

D. Cole Jewelers is a small, family owned and operated jewelry store in the Old Port of Portland, Maine since 1981. It was started by Dean and Denise Cole after they had been selling jewelry at craft shows in college and over their summers starting in 1977. They opened their first seasonal store in 1980 in Saco and moved to the Old Port in 1981. They have remained there and expanded twice within the same space. Their family has grown to include their son Ryan, daughter Emily, daughter-in-law Lindsey, Denise’s brother Jeff, and sister-in law Rhonda during seasonal times.
