Carroll Ochs Jewelers Inside Store Facing Engagement Ring Cases

Owner's Message

Hello.  My name is Bernie Ochs and I am the president of Carroll/Ochs Jewelers.  I started this business with the intention of offering the finest quality diamonds and jewelry at the most affordable prices.
What makes Carroll/Ochs Jewelers different from other jewelry stores is that each of my employees puts in the extra energy to please the customer before, during and after the sale.  I want every customer to feel as though every effort possible was made to make their visit extremely pleasurable.
The relaxed, friendly atmosphere that is provided gives the customer a stress-free feeling to make a purchase for that special occasion.  We have a vast array of diamonds, fine jewelry and watches.   We also specialize in custom designs for the customer who wants a "one of a kind" piece of jewelry.
I attend several buying shows a year to stay on top of all the latest fashionable trends as well as purchases for the traditional customer.  Whatever your jewelry needs, Carroll/Ochs Jewelers is here to please you.
Stop in and let Carroll/Ochs Jewelers help you to make just the right purchase for your special someone.

Thank you,
Bernie C. Ochs
When he was 15 years old, Bernie Ochs was hired by a family jewelry business, where he continued to work through high school and college.  After graduating with a Bachelors degree in Finance, the same family jewelry business wanted him to manage one of their jewelry stores.  Bernie did just that until he decided to open his very own store.
In October of 1987, Bernie Ochs Jewelers opened its doors to the public in Monroe, Michigan.  He teamed up with Ron Carroll in March of 1990 to open a second store in Toledo, Ohio.  This union became Carroll/Ochs Jewelers.  Since then, Ron has retired and the Toledo store was sold, leaving Carroll/Ochs Jewelers in its present Monroe, Michigan location.
For the past 20 years, no matter where our stores were located, weve strived to grow and offer exceptional diamonds, jewelry and watches at competitive prices.  Our services are designed to help our customers find the perfect piece of jewelry for any occasion. If you cant find exactly what youre looking for or simply want a unique piece, Carroll/Ochs specializes in custom designs.
At Carroll/Ochs Jewelers, we also understand the importance of giving back to the community.  We will donate to just about any charity that seeks help, but specifically, we are a major sponsor of the Grafton Hall Bridal Expo and the American Red Cross Golf Spectacular.


We are a small, historic, suburban area. We have a variety of neighborhoods and a good range of living conditions, services and parks. The greater Monroe area has an approximate population of 40,000. We are in close proximity to larger cities, such as Detroit, Ann Arbor and Toledo, Ohio. We can visit, shop and eat in the larger cities while living in Monroe with a hometown feeling.
We are a major sponsor of the Grafton Hall Bridal Expo and also the American Red Cross Annual Golf Outing. We also are contributors for the Monroe Knights of Columbus, Monroe County Chamber of Commerce, the Monroe Moose Lodge and The Elks in Sylvania, Ohio.
