Welcome to Cleveland Jewelry Exchange

Since 1981, owner Larry Zilbert has been involved in the jewelry business.

A native of Beachwood, Larry received an Associate Degree in business from Broward College, Fort Lauderdale, FL. Upon returning to the Cleveland area, he took a position with Zale’s as an assistant manager in the Richmond Mall store, where his passion for jewelry was born. Then, Larry got a position in wholesale distribution and began selling to retail jewelry stores. After finding success, he decided to open his own wholesale distribution business by partnering directly with jewelry watches factories to wholesale to retail stores.

In April of 1988 Larry decided to chart his own course and open a retail store himself. Larry sold everything he owned, obtained loans from his mother and a good friend, and opened a jewelry counter inside a supermarket chain store called Carls.

With the unexpected close of the supermarket chain, Larry founded Cleveland Jewelry Exchange, located across the mall from the former supermarket location in Bedford. With over 27 years of successful business and quality customer service, CJE remains one of Cleveland’s leaders in new and used jewelry.

Larry is a classic car buff, and active in a local group, “Rock & Roll Capital Street Machines.”

  • After a couple weeks of searching I found the perfect ring and went back to see Larry. He was able to make the exact same ring with a FAR BETTER quality diamond for much less than all others. I was able to get exactly what I wanted for the budget that I was staying within. Larry single handedly made this an enjoyable experience.

  • This past Saturday was our wedding anniversary and I had a ring in mind that I wanted so we went to check out Cleveland Jewelry Exchange. The experience was wonderful! I found a ring that was even more beautiful than what I originally wanted.
