Sorg Jewelers – Your Celebration Destination

 

“For the SIXTH straight year – once again – we are truly humbled and honored to be awarded The Elkhart Truth’s BEST jewelry store of Elkhart County! Thanks to all who voted for us!” said John Sorg, President of Sorg Jewelers. “As I’ve said before, this award is a true testament about our community and how they have embraced us with their long standing trust in Sorg Jewelers, and with that, have recognized us the best jewelry store in Elkhart County – in succession. This award makes us feel very much appreciated – equal to how we appreciate our clients.” added John. “Six-peat…what an accomplishment!” said Darin Sorg, Vice-President. “Winning six times in a row at anything is extremely difficult. While we celebrate this win, at the same time we will not be resting on our laurels. We owe it to our clients to be the best and at the top of our game. Our caring sales staff and goldsmith department undeniably pride themselves in delivering the best experience, the best craftsmanship, the best knowledge, the best service and the best gifts to offer our clients – through in and throughout. So I’m exceptionally pleased, and to a certain degree, it’s fitting that we have earned and have been recognized – again – as being the best in what we do. Within ourselves, we recognize the fact that this award and title wasn’t just earned overnight and we are always striving to get better. In business for 116 years and four generations – we celebrate this award with our families, our staff and our current clientele. Perhaps, with this series of wins, we may garner some attention for anyone that has yet to visit one of our stores – in need of our beautiful offerings and services. I trust they would appreciate the experience and the exceptional value that Sorg Jewelers offers and what we can do for them!”, added Darin.

What started as one man’s passion has turned into a family’s tradition. Sigmund Sorg founded Sorg Jewelers in 1900 in Roanoke, Illinois. Second generation sons, Sidney, Earl, Nelson and Richard carried on the business for decades. Now third and fourth generation Sorg’s are in charge of the storied family business that has been in Elkhart County since the late 1920’s. John Sorg (Sidney’s son) is President and Darin Sorg (John’s son) is Vice – President. They carry on the tradition and legacy of trust, high ethical standards, knowledge, fair pricing and value through their two stores. It is a simple, yet crucial formula for the stores’ success. Everything else builds from those five important keys. All of Sorg’s staff is non-commissioned and they feel that their attentive, superior service and their consistency in their high quality of jewelry are some main reasons that keeps clients coming back, generation after generation – now for over 116 years.

In addition to their longevity in business and being awarded Elkhart County’s BEST jewelry store (five straight years), Sorg Jewelers separates themselves from the rest with their membership in the highly accredited American Gem Society (AGS), which has rigorous standards that must be met for membership.
