Our Story

The story of G. Blando Jewelry began in the early 1900s when Joe Blando, the great-grandfather of the current generation, immigrated to the US before World War I and started a jewelry business. By the 1970s, Joe’s son, Guy, had a son of his own who was fully immersed in the family business. In the ’90s, Gino conjured the vision for Blando’s Marry Me Jewelry in an early morning dream. The Marry Me Jewelry store started in 1999 in LaGrange Park, IL, moving to Countryside in 2009, where it remains a staple of the community to this day.

The current generation of Blando jewelers includes Jr. Blando, who is the fourth-generation craftsman of the family. Jr. was introduced to the business at the age of 12 and learned the values of honesty, collaboration, persistence, and entrepreneurial spirit. Armed with a lifetime of experience in diamonds and jewelry manufacturing as well as degrees from both California State University Fullerton and The Gemological Institute of America, Gino Jr. is prepared to carry on the family business.

We seek to stay ahead of the game in delivering the best jewelry services available to the public.
