The company has been in the jewelry business since 1935. Founded in Seattle by Milton Sholdt, it is currently under the direction of brother Brian and Dustin Sholdt, grandsons of Milton Sholdt. Together they own and operate the shop bearing their name. For over 75 years the Sholdt family has been making jewelry in their unassuming Seattle area workshop. In four generations, the business has grown from a repair bench to an internationally recognized design and manufacturing house for wedding and engagement rings, known simply as “Sholdt.” Still, whatever success they find as designers, for the brothers the jewelry trade is above all about family and history. They don’t just make jewelry because they have a passion for it; they make it because that is what their family does.
